RE: Audigy 2: almost working... some further questions.



Yes, the Audigy 1 has Firewire support. And I've used it in Linux without a
problem. (Downloaded Video's and Sound from my Canon Digital Video camera)

yes the audigy 2 is supported but only with the latest cvs source that you
must compile and install.  I had therefore done this and now have the issue
i discussed.

An aside... I decided to get the audigy 2 because of the numerous fixes that
creative had done since audigy 1.  and it the audigy 2 is meant to be better
for more serious audio applications like mixing and recording.  by the way,
does the audigy 1 have a firewire port?

Yes, when installing different hardware which you have an onboard
equivalent. You MUST disable that device else it will cause problems.

As to "What should you do next??" Well, have you checked the site below to
see if the Audigy 2 support has been added??

http://sourceforge.net/projects/emu10k1

As I believe that this card is a little different to the Audigy 1. Which is
one reason I haven't gone out and bought an Audigy 2 yet. (Chipset is a
little different, but I haven't been able to get all the details yet.)

ok well as i mentioned in my email... i had already done this... although
part of my query was to know if i really had to. But the issue is that now
the audigy 2 is recognised, it does not work properly via the analog port.
i.e. i hear distorted sound from the digital port, but nothing from the 3rd
analog port emu-config -a does nothing to help. what should i do next?

For starters I would disable ALL references of the onboard Sound card in the
BIOS. EG: sound, midi and Game ports. I have to do the same with my Audigy
1. (Plus of course the onboard sound card will also takeup system resources
which will be best used by the Audigy 2 card.)

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
and also the files in /usr/local/etc that relate to the audigy and the
emu10k1... these are scripts and the emu10k1 conf file

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/) 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 make all seemed
ok so i did make again, all seemed fine, so then make install make tools
make install-tools 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?
