• Ubutu 12.4

    First of all, This is my first experence with Linux, and I've already run into a problem. My Sound Blast Live 24 isn't recognised by Ubuntu. I found a driver snd_emu10kx, and the directions say place these lines in the kernel configuration file, then compile:

    device sound
    device snd_emu10kx

    or Alternativly, load the driver at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf

    snd_emu10kx_load=YES

    Right, I have no idea on either one. It took me 10 trys to get 12.4 to recognize the raid drive and scsi. Any ideas on how I can get sound on this machine. Damn, I'm lost. I'm trying to learn Lenux, as I'm getting board with windows. I'm gonna try to run the bbs on this machine in time, after I figure things out.

    I remember having to rebuild my Linux kernel to support new drivers - But I haven't had to do that in many years. I thought they had implemented another way to load hardware drivers in Linux by now which doesn't require rebuilding the kernel.

    Thanks, I'll look into that. I moved on to OPENsuse, since it had soundblaster support, but I'm having problems compiling sync, so I'll check out the Ubuntu's drivers and start all over again. Thanks for the info. I really like OPENsuse however, but it's internal gcc/c++ doesn't seem to like sync, or I have totally missed something.
