sound driver

hello what have i need to instal the sound driver.
i have a soundblaster adigy i dont know withs type it is ken somone help me


To get you started, have you tried configuring it yet with yast?

YaST -> Hardware -> Sound

Do you see your sound card listed?

You could also try opening a terminal window (KDE konsole) and try running the command

alsaconf (as root user)

This should try to detect and configure your card for you.

If you are unsuccessful, then run this command

/sbin/lspci -v

and post the results.

BTW: Similar thread here.

oke i tryde whitre the console ant the resuts are this

Looks like you didn’t manage to cut and paste entire output.

Do su command first to become root. Then do lspci -v

bash: lspci: command not found

i kad this then as resolt

Lets try again:

Do su, then enter root password when prompted. Now enter /sbin/lspci -v

(You may not have had the correct path to just do lspci, although I don’t know why).

it dont work

but how ever wen i tryde to a simler test program ware the mixer are ent i move the buttens ther whas soud when i try the test

A lot of audigy users are having a problem with their mixer. Please take a look at the mixer setup recommendations here, apply them, and see if that helps:
[Solution] Creative Audigy 1/2 + 11.0 + KDE/GNOME + ALSA - openSUSE Forums](

So, you have sound now? I guess its solved. :slight_smile:

me sound ent that you have one the thasbord below a speaker whit the mixer its cone i dont know how to finet it back

ware krn i do the soud setup ??

If I understand you correctly, the mixer is missing. It can be started from K Menu -> Applications -> Multimedia -> KAMix

You can also start it from a console: If using KDE 3 then do kamix, for KDE 4 use kmix

i hhave tride many posebiblethies i ken si sb audygi listed but dont know how to do it to configer it i trid my verry best en hart so if entone have a sugesgen tel me pleas

no idond have sound yet

With your computer connected to the internet can you run a diagnostic script that will post information on your computer’s hardware/software audio configuration to a pastebin site. Specifically, copy and paste the following line to an xterm/konosle:

wget && su -c 'bash ./tsalsa' 

When prompted for a password enter the root password. When it is complete it will give you a URL. Please paste that URL here.

Also, please run the following commands, one at a time, in a konsole and paste their output here:**
rpm -qa | grep alsa
rpm -qa | grep pulse
rpm -q libasound2
uname -a
cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound**

With that information, I may be able to make a recommendation that will help.
