    Sound Card


    I'm so sorry with all these questions. It seems like one problem comes to another when configuring this computer. I just put in a Soundblaster SB Live 5.1 sound card in my computer. Now when I put it in my last computer, Kubuntu immediately picked it up as a soundcard and gave me /dev/dsp1. On this computer I don't have that, how do I fix this?

    Thank you so much,
    Jeff

    Is the sound not working are you trying to something more with it?
    Are sure it isn't muted? Try running alsamixer to make sure..
    try running from the command line
    Code:
     aplay --list-devices
    and see if anything is listed
    also run
    Code:
    lspci -v
    and see if anything with multimedia is listed

    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: V8237 [VIA 8237], device 0: VIA 8237 [VIA 8237]
    Subdevices: 4/4
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
    Subdevice #2: subdevice #2

    Subdevices: 1/1

    That is the output I get when I run the aplay --list-devices. I have a soundblaster put in and am just wanting Linux to recognize it right now. When I run the other command, I didn't see anything about a soundblaster or anything.

    And that is the output for the other one.

    ok, it found a sound device..... could it be the built-in motherboard sound? You may have to turn that off in the bios.

    Alright, I disabled the onboard audio. I do have an onboard audio device but I want to use my soundblaster because the onboard audio wasn't outputing any sound (Unless linux isn't configured right or something).

    What should I do now?

    once you have the onboard disabled, retry what I said in my first post

    I did those two commands and basically got the same. I went through my bios and disabled the onboard audio. So I don't know what's going on. I did get those two same outputs though.
