I have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 and have been trying to use the latest cvs of emu10k1 to get it to work. I am almost there, but have one question.
I can hear sound from the digital port through the analog speakers, but cannot hear anything out of the analog port (3rd from the firewire port).
emu-config -a makes no difference.
Here i have posted my modules.conf file from /etc at the bottom of this email.
as well as the
Note that I have onboard motherboard Intel AC'97 sound that seems to be getting in the way as well, and the below shows how i tried to solve this by disabling it on the BIOS.
Is there an issue with the drivers trying to access a port on the front case that is normally found on the Audigy 2 Platenum ??... my audigy 2 does not have this.
My history to get it to work thus far...
Have installed the kernel I wish to use along with the right kernel source. In this case 2.4.18-24.8.0.
so /usr/src has a symlink called linux-2.4 which points to /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-24.8.0/. I also copied this to a symlink called linux in the same dir as people mentioned this might be useful.
so ls on /usr/src is
linux (a symlink to linux-2.4.18-24.8.0/)
linux-2.4 (a symlink to linux-2.4.18-24.8.0/)
Have configured the modules as follows.
in /lib/modules i located config file in /lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/configs. It was called kernel-2.4.18-i686.config.
I copied this file to /lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/ and called it .config as suggested by posts to this list.
(Although someone told me you should not have to do this).
Now I got the emu10k1 stuff from cvs and installed it using
all seemed ok so i did make again, all seemed fine, so then
This all seemed fine
On rebooting my system, I found that there was no sound. The system was trying to use the onboard sound which is an intel based AC'97 sound card. I then set this to be disabled on the BIOS and rebooted getting a message about missing hardware at startup.. on removing the configuration for this device ... the boot process goes ok and that is where i start getting sound out of the digital port.
I would like to know how to get sound from the normal port. I would also like to know if it is a problem having the onboard sound device enabled with the BIOS. I.e. i want to have it enabled but not to use it in linux because I use it in another OS. what should i do for this?

## This file is used to configure emu10k1's emu-script
# Note, it's safe to say yes to the next option even if you're not going
# to use it. When this option is enabled, the driver can autodetects AC3
# data and behaves normally with normal audio.
# (Saying yes causes some of the soundcard's resourses to be used up)
# Change this to yes to enable the Livedrive midi port and IR remote
# Most Lives have their analog front signals inverted. If you have
# problems with your setup (low bass), try changing this to 'yes'. (This
# option has no effect with digital setups)
#Multichannel playback (for 4 - 6 channel setups)
# On 5.1 cards in multichannel mode, should the multichannel data be fed
# to the sub as well? You probably don't want this if you have a
# speaker set like the DTT2200 which already feeds all channels to the
# sub in hardware.
# By default, the front analog channels have a +12dB boost applied to
# them by the AC'97 mixer. If you encounter clipping, or find that the
# volume of the front speakers is too high in a multichannel setup, try
# changing this to 'no'.
# Some wavs, or mp3 are surround sound encoded the next two
# options can be used to decode these in hardware.
# (select on or the other, not both)
# passive matrix surround decoder
# Active matrix surround decoder

## This connector is mounted on the card itself

# The next four inputs are found on Livedrives, some of these may also
# be inputs on the older add-on daughter cards.

ENABLE_LINE2_MIC2=no # Volume control is 'Line2'
