Sound card under linux
Under Linux 6, are there any RPMs, etc. for a creative sound blaster live pci card?
Thanks in advance.
First of all, I'm assuming you're using Red Hat Linux 6.0, which is a _linux distribution_, not Linux. Just a common misconception, and a pet peeve of mine.
Have you tried sndconfig from the terminal? Also look here:

On further research, it seems that the SB Live may not be supported at the current time. Mail creative labs to see if they've got beta drivers done yet. They're supposed to have something in development.

Thanks for the information, I'll give it a shot. And sorry about the Linux folly, don't want to **** anyone off. What's the proper term?, Linux 2.0? (the version of the kernel?)
Don't worry about anyone getting angry. We Don't take it that seriously [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] It's just that since Red Hat is so popular and well-known, most new linux users think that they created or own Linux or something. They're are many other popular distributions. Also, the kernal for RH6 is of the 2.2 family, I believe. 2.3 should be released by November.
Did you get the SB Live working?
You can download drivers for it here.
technically speaking, Kernel 2.3 will never be "released"
Linux uses an even-odd numbering scheme in the first decimal place.
2.0 is a "stable" (final, distobution, "done") kernel.
2.1 was the "developer" (read "working" or "test") kernel that eventually became...
2.2 (the one all the new distributions are using now)
2.3 is the current "developer" kernel, and when it is done, it wil be named...
2.4 and released "officially" (targeted for late this year)
Of course, you are free to download and use the developer Kernels, but it probably aint a good idea unless you wanna help out (find bugs, patch code, etc) or just have a dire need to be "bleeding edge"
could I put a few more quotation marks in here anywhere?
