    Soundblaster Live Card

    Hello again - you guys were so helpful in sorting out my newbie-ness that i'm back!!

    I've been playing around with linux for a couple of months now, and most things are going well, except that i can't get my soundcard to work...

    i've downloaded the EMU10K1 driver from the net and it compiles fine, but when i use
    sndconfig --noprobe
    to select the card, i get...

    errors in modprobe program

    /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/emu10k1.0 init_module: device or module busy

    /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/emu10k1.0 insmod failed

    /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/emu10k1.0 insmod sound-slot-0 failed

    so hmm... i'm sure its something trivial to most of you lot, but hey, help a newbie out again??

    KERNEL 2.2.16 ?? d00d, you may want to upgrade that ancient kernel.

    But basically, the in kernel emu10k1 driver in 2.4/2.5 is just fine, and it rather troublefree.

    oh and I would be glad to talk you through a kernel compile should you need it.

    That's the module I use for my Soundblaster Live card. Works just fine. But definately upgrade your kernel and/or distro.
