    Removing SoundCard


    I have two sound cards, one is integrated and the other is a Sound Blaster 5.1 X-Gamer, the install detected both and installed both, but my Soundblaster isn't working which i'm guessing it's trying to use the integrated one. How can i remove the integrated one or disable it and make it use my soundblaster? Redhat 8 by the way.

    you actually do it in BIOS

    when your computer boots press F2 or DEL or some key (it should say on teh screen) to enter CMOS or BIOS or SETUP

    anyway, once your in there find the section for onboard sound and disable it (AC97 is the same thing)

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.

    Start a shell (as root) and run redhat's "sndconfig". That will probably help you.
