Thread: Unable to install sound.

  1. #1

    Default Unable to install sound.

    Hello, I have installed suse linux 11.0 and I cannot seem to get the driver for my sound card install.

    I have fixed several issues in regards to the kernel but there seems to be a problem with something else and I think this is the installer as right at the bottom is says

    line 496: command not found
    line 497: command not found

    Both of these are related to the installer.

    This comes up after the licence agreement so I know the commands I am using are correct as I am using the ones supplied with the driver.

    Everything else seems to be ok, what can I do/check to fix this problem please?

    I have looked all the way through the install software menu and can't find anything there. Is there anything I can use to configure my sound card to with with suse linux?

    If it helps I use a Sound Blaster xfi xtreme music sound card by creative.

    Thanks

    Hi
    Open a console/konsole and ook at those lines in the installer file to
    see what commands it's trying to run?

    Code:
    less <full_path_to_install_file><name_of_install_file>
    Page down to the line number indicated above (will be on the right,
    bottom) and see what it is...

    That sound device is not compatible with Linux:

    not compatible

    Creative X-FI

    I have just been looking through the link you sent me and it says that creative will be making a driver for linux so although I have the driver is it a case of yes I have the driver for my sound card but linux won't be able to use it?

    I'm just puzzled why creative would make a driver for a sound card that linux doesn't support

    Although now I do have some good news, I should of tried this before I posted but I also have on-board sound aswell, I have just plugged this in and I can hear things I would prefer it through my card but if thats not possible its not possible

    I'm new to linux so I am hoping I can teach my-self all the basics with a few books.

    Thanks for the help, really appreciated.

    Hi
    You need to install the 'make' file which is part of the development
    base.

    Code:
    sudo zypper in make
    Now it could also ask for other files when installing, please accept
    them. Now if there are still issues you may need to install the whole
    development base;

    Code:
    zypper in -t pattern devel_basis
    You can also do the above via YaST->software->software management, just
    set the filter to 'pattern'.

    Cheers malcolmlewis

    It came up with this

    make: *** [all] Error 2
    make: *** [install] Error 2

    I know its not compitable with linux as oldcpu said but I know in odd times I have got none compatible devices to work with other operating systems so I gave this ago, I don't know if the same rule applies to Linux though.

    I think i'm out of options and will have to use my onboard sound at least its sound of some sort though

    No, you are not out of options yet. (That link that you pointed to
    says they expected to have it working late last year. So, maybe it
    DOES work now.)

    In all probability, your 'error 2' was because of missing prerequiste source
    software. Try this in Yast->software:

    Set filter to 'pattern' and go down and check 'base development' and
    install all that, and then try your 'make' again.

    Hi
    Can you supply the download link for the file?
