Trouble getting Soundblaster live to work with Mandrake 9 beta

I recently installed Mandrake 9 beta 1. It's been working decent, KDE 3, is nice, etc. However, I can't get sound to work with my soundblaster live. I run sndconfig and pick out my soundcard, but then the testing sound doesn't work. I tried to insmod emu10k1, but that doesn't work either . Anyone have any ideas? Does anyone have the Mandrake 9 beta working with a soundblaster live? I had it working fine in Mandrake 8.2... perhaps I should have just been content with that .

One of the many reasons its "beta". Something you might want to report to Mandrake since that is why the beta is released, to report bugs.

What are some of the errors you receive if any ?

The following is what I get when I try to insmod emu10k1. sndconfig fails silently.. no error messages. I'd file a bug report if I knew it was a bug, and not just me being retarded .

[root@bomberbox rob]# insmod emu10k1

Well, looks like that module won't work with those errors. If you know you installed everything properly, I would send in a bug report, could be some issues with sound at this time.
But you can always try reinstalling the necessary driver for your sound and maybe sndconfig....

I made the mistake of subscribing to the spam-fest know as the cooker mailing list. They're aware of the issue, its getting cleaned up.
