Question audigy question

Hey there !!

Linux newbie here....

installed red hat 9.0 , and the emu10k1 driver was included with the installation. but i just cant get it to work (probably im to new to this to fully understand the help that i found in my searches on the web)

1. anybody that can help me by telling me how i should go about to get it to work properly ?
2. where do i go to turn "digital output" on ??
3. anybody that knows how u get red hat to "show" my ntfs drive ?? (ive looked through the whole root folder but i cant find it anywhere ?)

I know that im very new to this, but if u dont ask the question, u will most definetly not get the answer...... ( and hopefully i will very soon get the hang of this.....

first ....sorry my english is very bad, since it isn't my native.

I use SB Audigy too, u can turn on the digital output from the volume control, right click ur mouse on the panel and choose " add to panel --->> multimedia and click the volume control ", right click on the volume control icon again choose " run volume control " and turn the " dig1 " all way up.

In redhat 9 if u play CD from gnome-cd ( KS-CD, XMMS also ), u'll get no sound, but if u do have a CD-ROM which comes with the SPDIF cable, u can plug it one end to the CD-ROM and another to Audigy SPDIF input ( see the audigy manual ), and then ....enjoy ur music. U can use " vol " and "dig1" to control the volume, use " PCM" instead when u watch movie with XINE or Mplayer.

For showing ur NTFS drive u must have kernel-ntfs installed pick the right one here ( choose the RIGHT one !!! )

kernel-ntfs installation :

open a terminal
as root type :
#rpm -ivh kernelfile

U have to make a directory first in /mnt to mount ur ntfs partition, do it as follow :
as root :
#mkdir /mnt/windows ( change "windows" with other name u like )

to mount ur partition type :
as root
#mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows .. assuming that ur ntfs partition is in hda1

to access the windows partition issue a command like :
as root
#cd /mnt/windows

u can mount the ntfs automatically by editing ur fstab file :
as root
#vi /etc/fstab
add something like
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,user,ro 0 0
u still can't view the contents of ur ntfs partition, u must have the right permission, see mount and fstab manual for details !!!

hope it helps.... !!

ok... ive tried what u told me... but no luck....

really dont know what i did wrong either..... first i configured the Kmix like u told me.... setting the dg1 alternativ to a max... no sound... and the spdif cable was connected like u said.

then i tried the ntfs.... got the right rpm package and it said : modprobe cant locate ntfs driver.. and im in this writing moment going to trie to do it manually and see if that helps.....

but lots of thanks anyway..... at least i think im going in the right direction know....*smile*
