I give up / advise on sound card model


I give up on my EMU10k1 sound card. What is an easy to configure, and "foolproof" sound card? I am not able to get my microphone up and running but need it for VoIP.
Thanks for suggestions.

ive been using a creaitive audigy sound blaster pro

generaly the best thing to do with hardware under linux is to go for something that is both popular and more standard with fewer bells and whistles. often onboard sound etc.. can cause problems. the best thing to do is get a list from your linux distribution of what hardware it supports and then pick something from there that fits your requierments

Look on the ALSA supported list. There are also a few onboard cards supported. Which are you using now and did you use the command line to get it to work or only graphical tools?

EMU10k1 sound card IS the best supported card without a doubt !
i gave a suggestion in your other post
i've even got mine doing midi input through the game port so don't give up

don't think your card is one of those strange dell emu10k1x live value things or it wouldn't work at all

learn to use the cammand
amixer
just by itself it gives the whole scoop
post output if you want

if you really hate alsa you can switch to the old OSS driver it's alot simpler
just comment out the alsa junk in /etc/modprobe.conf
and put
alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
then after boot go
modprobe emu10k1
and see if you like that better

I replaced the DELL version (EMU10K1x) by EMU10K1. I plugged the cables into the jacks as described in the install manual. The computers loudspeakers and the ones of the headphone work perfectly fine, but not the mic. To rule out the mic is defect, I bought another mic, this one does not work neither
Here again the output of amixer
