Which distribution and kernel? The driver for those devices has been part of the kernel for a while, I believe and is called, unsurprisingly, emu10k1. What specifically are you having problems with?

indeed. since 2.6 kernels, most distro's have it supplied by default.
But, it might be that you need to load that module manually.
you can supply it to the modules.conf / modprobe.conf (depending on the distro) file, so it loads it on boot.

And during a session you could do a modprobe or insmod emu10k1 on the console.
then check if it's assigned to the hardware by checking lsmod
then restart the sound daemon, to have it bond to the driver/hardware.

Fair enough. Please mark your thread as solved (look under "Thread Tools" at the top of the thread).
