Just discovered Mandrake 8.1 but have issues with sound
Hi all, I've installed Mandrake 8.1 on top of my Windows 98/Windows XP dual boot giving me a triple boot up,but I got the disks from a friend and have no manual. I have my internet working and one of my printers but can't get the sound to work.I have a Creative Labs SB Live Value sound card,Hardrake detects it as SB Live (does not mention the 'Value' bit) but the 8 bit sample can't be heard. I tried changing the sound detection in the KDE centre with no success,can anyone help? This is my first venture into Linux and I can see from many of the forums I viewed online that many people have a handle on it but when I put in the installaion disk, I stepped through a door not knowing what was on the other side. Now that I've had a look, I like what I see and want to get involved. Please bear in my,I've no grasp of the command line side of Linux yet.
Would really appreciale any help at all,thanks everyone.
