Silly Audigy 2...

I just loaded suse linux and have numerous problems. the first is that my new audigy 2 won't init. this causes linux not to load the audio mixer. does anyone know of a new audigy 2 driver or a generic SB driver i can use to get the baic sound functions running? if so please give me detailed instructions, still new.

how did you solve the:
" /lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: insmod emu10k1 failed
problem? i've got exactly the same answer for modprobe

I'm having different problems with my Audigy. I'm running RH9 and recently "upgraded" my Kernel to 2.4.20-18.9. The previous version was 2.4.20-8. Sound didn't work in the previous version either, but since it was a newish install I didn't mess with sound in it and went to the newer update.

Per the instructions on the ALSA web site, everything seems to go fine up to the modprobe portion. When I do that step, I get errors along the lines of: "/lib/modules/2.4.20-18.9/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: kernel-module version mismatch .... etc. Essentially continues on to say that snd.o was compiled for the previous kernel version I was running.

I'm sure this is an easy "fix" and hopefully this is my only hurdle for this newbie to get sound working!

Well in my quest to be able to play music I remembered my mobo had built in sound that I disabled in the BIOS when I bought my Audigy way back when. So I enabled that and now I have sound most of the time. I'm dual booting into windows or sometimes I just shut my system down while I'm away for the day and when I reboot back into Linux, sound isn't there (no errors display at boot though.) Sometimes I have to reboot 2-3 times before sound will work again. I have not physically removed the Audigy from the system yet and really don't plan to or want to.

Any thoughts on this? As far as getting the Audigy to work, might I have better luck patching the drivers into the kernel and recompiling? Should I try the newer kernel released in recent days?
