    well the number one thing is:
    is emu10k1 loaded.
    number 2
    is the volume turned up.

    First, I'd like to thank everyone for the quick response. Red Hat 8.0 recognizes the SBLive 5.1 sound card. I see it in the sound detection program and it shows it at initial load. I can play CDs and DVDs but have absolutely no desktop sounds in either KDE or Gnome. This problem exists on several computers here and no one here can figure it out. I have made some phone calls so please be a little patient with us while we try out some of the solutions below to see if we can get any of them to work.
    Once again, thanks, we greatly appreciate it. We're really trying to learn Linux, but quite frankly it's kicking our butts.

    Courage

    It's a general concensus here that we're all going to slick our drives and re-install Red Hat 8.0. We've been hacking away and have our systems so messed up that we'd like to get a fresh start. It shouldn't take very long to load so give us about 30 minutes and we'll be coming back to re-read all the suggestions.
    Everyone wants to say Hi and send their thank you's. There's 8 people on this end, the other 7 are on watch. be back in a few.

    Allright. I'd say, let's start from the beggining. From a terminal window, if you type lsmod, what output do you get? Could you post it? This will tell us what modules are being loaded.

    I'v got my 5.1 working with bass/treble channels by compiling the emu10k1 from sourceforge.net/projects/emu10k1
    adding this to modules.conf
    Code:
    alias char-major-116 snd
    alias char-major-14 soundcore
    alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
    alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
    alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss

    alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
    alias /dev/mixer sound-service-0-0
    alias /dev/dsp sound-service-0-3
    alias /dev/midi sound-service-0-1
    and then adding this script to local startup
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash  
    BASEPATH=/usr/local
    DSPATH=$BASEPATH/bin/emu-dspmgr
    TONE=$BASEPATH/share/emu10k1/tone.bin
    $DSPATH -l"Pcm L" -f$TONE -cbass -mbass -ctreble -mtreble
    $DSPATH -l"Pcm R" -f$TONE
    $DSPATH -l"Pcm1 L" -f$TONE
    $DSPATH -l"Pcm1 R" -f$TONE
    hope it can give some help

    Okay, no laughing, but what do you mean by "script to local startup"? Are we supposed to type that into an X-window?

    gnome uses esd and kde uses arts

    Yes, but which one does BlueCurve use?
    [/quote]

    Bluecurve is a theme, not a WM. Its a theme and icon set for KDE and GNOME to make it look uniform. Nothing more, nothing less.
    [/quote]

    Ah, I see. So we need to find out if he's using KDE or Gnome.
    [/quote]

    We're using both, or I should say we've tried both. In our attempts to download the emu10k1 from sourgeforce we keep receiving a Make ***[1] audio.o error 1 fault. We've even tried the Alsa Player and can't get it to load. Once we got the driver to load using an rpm from a website but then nothing else would take ( lib, utils, etc.,) so we gave up on it as well. We must of tried a 100 combinations in the /etc/modules.conf file. I've read more ways of getting it to work than you can imagine, we just simply can't get any of it to work. There is one thing I did notice comparing Red Hat against SuSE is that the "/usr/src/linux" directory in SuSE is labled as "/usr/src/linux-2.4" in Red Hat. I'm not sure if that's causing some of the problem or not but we're thinking maybe the drivers can't find the kernel because of that.

    p.s. how do you change the font on this?

    Re:Red Hat 8.0 and SoundBlaster Live 5.1 Platinum

    Are you logged in as root when you get no sound? Did you tried to restart the X-server after doing the modprobe?
    I remember having a similar issue on my Slackware at the beggining, and it was that my user account did not had rights to the sound card (/dev/dsp)
