    Redhat with Soundblaster Audigy Gamer?


    I just installed RH 8.0 and I have a soundblaster audigy gamer that works well with XP Pro, 2000, and Mandrake 9 but for some reason it will not play sounds in RH. Any idea's? I attempted to update drivers but Creative's Site said that their were no drivers availible.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure whether audigy support is actually incorporated into the emu10k1 drivers yet, but I can tell you that I haven't heard good things about it.

    Hrmmmm

    I didn't think that it did. Is there anyway to make the drivers that came with Mandrake 9 work with them or is that way too much hassle?

    I don't think creative is letting specs out on the emu10k1 chip (At least I didn't find them when I wanted to write MIDI support) so it wouldn't be too easy. Maybe ALSA has audigy support. Otherwise, check sourceforge.net/projects/emu10k1/ to see if maybe they've added audigy support lately. They were talking about it some months ago so I guess it's not impossible.

    OK....

    There is a release that supports it (thanks) but now I am having trouble getting the damned thing to install. I did exactly what it said to do, and I get errors. I am using RH Kernal 2.4.18-19.8.0 and is says that the source code should be for that version. Where can I find what I need to find... lol?

    Here is the version of emu10k1 that I am trying: emu10k1-v0.20a and when I type "make install" I get this error:
    cc -c -o audio.o audio.c
    make: cc: Command not found
    make: *** [audio.o] Error 127
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    and when I type just "make" i get this error:
    make -Cscripts
    make[1]: Entering directory `.../emu10k1-v0.20a/scripts'

    /lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/build directory does not exist. Please edit the file
    'config'
    in this directory and set KERNEL_SOURCE to the correct location of your
    kernel source.

    You are currently running kernel version 2.4.18-19.8.0, the source code should
    be for this version.

    make[1]: *** [get_version] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `.../emu10k1-v0.20a/scripts'
    make: *** [opts] Error 2

    Thanks for any help.

    well you need to install the kernel source

    kernel-source-2.4.18-19.8.0.rpm

    and it would appear the devel stuff, cc, gcc, etc - there are several packages there that you will have to sort out the dependencies, or stick the CD's back in and install the development section

    Hey majorwoo... You have helped me before....

    under another name (Guy) but I have been away for a while.


    I was reading the Docs/REAME file and it said this:
    2. Using RedHat distribution kernel sources.
    Copy/link one of the config files in linux/configs/*.config
    to linux/.config. The file should match your running kernel.

    What is it talking about?

    can you paste a the exact section from there?

    general link:
    lets say for example we have a file /blah, then me have a link to this file called /home/majorwoo/my_file so whenever i opened the file /home/majorwoo/my_file it would actually open the file /blah - basically the link points to the file

    man ln

    will go into more depth

    oops, that is the exact wording, i read it to quick - try looking for a file whose version matches your kernel 2.4.18-19.8.0 in the linux/configs/*.config

    ls linux/config/*.config

    but make sure you are in the directory they told you to be in when you do this, the same place where you were when you did make. Whichever one in there matches your kernel needs to be linked to linux/.config

    ln -s linux/configs/2.4.18-19.8.0.config linux/.config

    obviously, you need to replace the kernel version in the above line with the file you find to match your kernel, if your not sure which one paste the output of

    ls linux/config/*.config

    that command here and we'll help ya

    (Basically what you are doing is telling it what configuration to use, specifically a configuration for YOUR kernel)

    OK. I have done everything I was told to do, and everything the instructions says to do and I still get an error:

    [root@localhost emu10k1-v0.20a]# make install
    **
    ** The driver was succefully compiled, now install it with:
    ** make install
    **
    mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1
    install -c -m 664 emu10k1.o //lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1
    install -c -m 664 ac97_codec.o //lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound
    /sbin/depmod -a 2.4.18-19.8.0
    /sbin/modprobe -r emu10k1.o ac97_codec.o
    ac97_codec.o: Device or resource busy
    make: *** [install] Error 1

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    What am I doing wrong? Thanks for all the help guys/girls.
