    i logged in as root from the main login screen

    messed with alsaconf and then just realised i could just grab the audigy 2 and pull it out and use the onboard soundcard for my motherboard.. and put the audigy 2 back in when i understand linux some more...

    ok, I could use the help now...

    I've got an SB Live! 24-bit, which also uses the ca 0106 drivers. The problem is that I don't have them, and can't seem to find out how to get them. How do I fix it?

    BTW:
    -The modprobe returns the FATAL error
    -Alsaconf detects my onboard audio, but not my SB card, why is this?

    Please help!

    Regular old Sound Blasters are a snap to get working under Linux. It's the Audigy that has been such a pain. I fought mine for a long time until I upgraded to kernel 2.6.12.2 which had the ca0106 module. I believe there could be a whole section here for Audigy sound cards alone!

    yeh there should be a whole section just for the audigy, mine is boxed up in my sock drawer now and im using onboard ac97 its ok i guess but my audigy 2 would be a LOT nicer if it were running

    I think I may have had the same problem as you while installing Fedora Core 4... the settings were okay, the module was the right one, it had detected my sound card just fine... but when "Play Test Sound" was selected, nothing came on:

    When using KDE all I did is open up 'KMix' and make sure that all the SWITCHES were turned on in the 'Switches' tab... worked a treat... try it, you might just get as lucky!
