Sound problem/total newbie


Hello, I just installed slackware 10, its my first try at linux and i just got trought the install with pure luck i guess.

Anyway i got some problems with my sound, i dont have any. I ran the alsaconf thing and it detected my soundcard (soundblaster audigy2something) but what do I do after ive done that?

Try plugging your speakers into the other output on the card. Last time I tried to get an SB card to work, I could only get sound out of the rear output jack.

run lsmod in a terminal and if you are running ALSA and an Audigy2, you should see:

snd_emu10k1

also, you should see about 9 other snd modules used by emu10k1
if they are loaded, then use alsamixer, pump up the volume, and enjoy the melodies

if not, try the above ideas, they should work. if youre using the default kernel, it should already load and be ready to use. slackware has a great installation, its surprisingly user friendly (the default kernel).
