Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook + Debian = Halt?
Has anyone managed to get Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS for notebooks (pcmcia)
working on debian? On kubuntu it worked fine. But Debian halts once I
insert the card or when it is detected in the start up.
I have: Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 (sarge), with kernel: Linux 2.4.27-3-686.
All ideas appriciated! Thx!

I have a feeling it is the fact you are using the 2.4 kernel. kubuntu uses 2.6Brilliant Mediocrity - Making Failure Look Good

Thx! The Linux kernel version 2.6.8-3-686 stopped the halt on card
detection. But I am still unable to get sound out of the device.
I have two sound cards of which the other is an internal SiS chip using the intel8x0 module which works fine.

/etc/modules.conf seems abit messy after all the configuration.. you can
have a look at it here: http://www.wizmelee.net/modules_conf_emu10k1.txt
What i have pretty much done is:
Selected the two drivers (intel8x0 & emuk10k1) with: dpkg-reconfigure
Built & installed the alsa module with module-assistant.
When i run alsaconf, select emuk10k1 (intel8x0 works fine). It does the
configuration ok, but the last step (preparing the card for playing, loading
alsa driver) halts. Also just doing modprobe snd-emu10k1 makes the system
I noticed that they are already listed in lsmod but no sound comes out of
/dev/dsp1,2or3. /dev/dsp or dsp0 works fine for the SiS soundcard.
