Sound Blaster Live


I've been trying to get the sound to work on my linux, I've got as far as downloading the emu10k1 driver for my sound blaster live card and think i have installed ok. (I got no errors anyway)

I got to the bit where it ses play a sound and it should auto detect it, i tried to play a sound but nothin happened, i dont know where i went wrong, do you guys have any idea?

First of all, just about every later distro comes with the latest kernel that already has this module/driver enabled or ready for use.

Second what are you using to test the sound with? sndconfig?

If the module is loaded ( lsmod ) and you've changed the permissions on /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer as follows:

chmod 666 /dev/dsp* /dev/mixer*

So all users can use sound, then test by playing a media or sound file, etc. Oh and bring your sound volume control and make sure its not muted or all the way down for some reason.

AS stated earlier my linux distro installed the driver by default during setup. It did not work however and when I played the test sound I also got nothing. I looked all over this site and found one post that mentioned to turn off PNP support in the BIOS and that fixed it. Hope it helps

When i type sndconfig it just says command not found,
When i do lsmod it gives pcmcia_core, rt18139, ppp_deflate, ppp, slip, slhc, lp, parport_pc and parport

I get the distinct impression that i'm overlooking a fundamental flaw in what i'm doing, please help
