Help with sound / rear speakers


I've been trying to find out how to get my rear speaker to work,the soundcard I have is a Sound Blaster 4.1 Digital it shows up as Ensoniq 5880 Audio PCI;Module:es1371-I/0 p0rts at df00 [size=64] PCI UMB I think, I tried alsa but my cd player was freezing up so I took it out.I read somewhere if I go into ect/sound/config and change speaker=2 to speaker=4 that that will do it,just looking for a little direction,thanks david

Talking Also Sound problem

I have tried Redhat 8, 9, Enterprise WS 2.1 and the latest Enterprise WS 3, update 1. None of these have permitted me to play music CD's. I've reinstalled XP on the box and music will play, I have used the CD's on Mandrake and they play. I also get sounds when I do the 3-chord sound test - BUT, I can not figure out how to get a music CD to play on any of these RedHat products. I've tried turning off and turning on Plug and Play, but still no music. I have an Ensoniq ES3170 on a Dell PIII, 256 MB box totally dedicated to Linux OS. Anyone have an idea? Aside form making a boat anchor of the system!

Hi sgtbob,I only listen to C.D.s and got tired of trying to fix it the right way so I spliced the front left and the back left together and the front right and the back right together so at least there was some sound coming out of them,and it sounds O.K.by me.david
