    audigy2 problem


    Hi,

    I use gentoo 2.6.12 and I recently bought a SB audigy2 Value.
    The card is working fine on win2k, but on my linyx system, the sound is not going out, and it seems to be correctly installed.
    In the beginning, I thought that was mutte, so I used alsamixer to unmutte everything, but it is still not working

    Can someone help me, thanks...

    Here are my systems informations:

    ls /proc/asound/ -l
    razem 1
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 wrz 3 11:22 Audigy2 -> card0

    even though you unmuted it the volume is probably still set to zero for master, pcm

    No, I checked again, but I have everything at 100 and nothing is mute (00), even the PCM

    Did you run alsaconf? I think you need alsa-utils and alsa-driver for it to run. Once you have alsaconf, as root go:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsaconf
    Audigy2 is gonna want ca0106 module. Configure it for that and then run...
    Code:
    /usr/bin/alsamixer
    Set volume controls. Once it sounds the way you want...
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsactl store
    This will save your alsa settings so you don't have to reset them every time you boot. I run the same card with Slackware so I know it works. There was a time it sat on the shelf though... Goof luck.

    This is not telling us much. Exactly what did you do, and how far did you get?

    - I stopped all the alsa driver that were running (in case).
    - I run "alsaconf"
    It found my soundcard, "Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy 2 Value" with the "emul0k1" driver.
    So I installed it
    - I run "lsamixer" and set everything to the maximum volume, and unmute everything, the only muted thing was =>"Audigy Analog / digital output jack"
    - I make 2 tests, one with an mp3 using "xmms", and another with a simple audio CD, using "mcdp" and it unfortunetely doesn`t work....
