*plays New Tetris Melody from OC Remix*

Seems to work fine. A friend of mine set it up for me (while I was there) and I don't recall anything special having to be done to get the onboard sound to work.

Question Sound Blaster Audigy LS ...moeminhtun


I installed the card after I had RH 9.0 up and running that may be the problem. I guess it must do some sort of setup with a fresh install if you have yours working. You feel that if reinstall RH 9.0 it will pick it up

When I first installed the RH 9, it's onboard sound card, and I got the sound right out of the box. Then a few days later, I bought Audigy sound card and installed it. And again, it detected and configured automatically.
But ofcourse, before I bought the sound card, I checked which sound cards are supported by RH9 right out of the box.

I have it working with ALSA, it took me about an hour to get it to work, but in that hour I spend 45 minutes compiling the kernel so make you own conclusions.
PS I'm currently using oss emulation to have sound in Quake3 and some other old apps.

I have a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz and the last few versions of Slackware have all detected it automatically using some compatible driver.

Mine auto detected the built in sound on my laptop.
It plays quite a bit quieter then windows did...I know this because when I reboot the little password beep is way loud compared to linux.
also I have to keep xmms at about 70% volume otherwise it starts to crackle.....
It's a laptop..I never had great sound expectations...

I am using Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card with alsa drivers. Sound quality is great but I still haven't been able to set it up for 6 speakers. Oss drivers worked from the beginning but I wanted check out the alsa ones. Alsamixer is great.

Sound blaster live, 2.6.0 everything works fine. I remember some skipping with xmms on the 2.4 kernel when their was high cpu usage though.

ALSA with 2.6.0 works fine. Though I'm experiencing some Xine problems. Sound works, except it's garbled. Sounds like a distorted echo.

One thing I found that might help some people, is to go into the KDE and change the "Autosuspend if idle" entry to 1 sec.

Sound Blaster Live! detected with Mandrake 9.1 install. Sound lags like 1 second. Excellent quality, works in all games. I also have onboard sound but I never used it. Default version of Alsa that comes with Mandrake.
