Sound Blaster Live 24-Bit PCI Problems.

Sound Blaster Live 24-Bit Problems.

After a successful install on Mandrake 10.1 with the 2.6.11 Kernel I have no drivers for my soundcard. I tried Google but it was no help.. I also tried your search feature but it returned an error.

So are there any Generic Soundcard Drivers that would support my card? What are their names?

I should have mentioned that my soundcard is reconized as a SoundBlaster LS. Which is not true.

In HardDrake I can configre which drivers I wish to use I chose Emu10k1.. But I still get no sound.
