Creative Labs SB Audigy2 ZS on FC8

Hello,

I was having some problems with audacity recording on my new PC using the on-board
sound (Realtek ALC888). I'm running FC8. I decided to pull the soundcard out of my
old computer and install it here. It is a Creative Labs SB Audigy2 ZS card that I had
running fine on my old Fedora installation. Under FC8, I can't seem to get it configured.
It shows up in lspci:

01:00.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 04)
Subsystem: Creative Labs SB Audigy2 ZS
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 5
I/O ports at c880 [size=64]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2

When I try the soundcard configuration tool, it shows up but in the summary there
is no module listed. The sound test fails and dumps output to /root/scsrun.log:

ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1240:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card
aplay: main:564: audio open error: No such file or directory
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
cat: /proc/asound/version: No such file or directory
cat: /proc/asound/modules: No such file or directory
cat: /proc/asound/pcm: No such file or directory

ProbeCards, method = kudzu
--------- Card 0 --------
Active 1
Vendor: Creative
Model: Labs SB Audigy
Driver: None

Volume: 75
Devices:
[]
Test device 0


alsaconf also gives errors:

No supported Pnp or PCI card found.


I'm not sure how to go about finding and installing the drivers to support this card. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Have a look at this link from the alsa soundcard matrix:

http://www.alsa-project.org/main/ind...-Creative_Labs

The chipset you have is emu10k2, Fedora 8 kernel comes with snd-emu10k1. I would try the commands in a terminal window:

su -
modprobe snd-emu10k1

and see what happens.

Thanks for your quick response! I have some great news. After accepting one of those package update prompts from Fedora, I rebooted the system. Even
though I must have rebooted a dozen times, this time it either caught something from the package update or something from the various config changes I had tried and presto ... sound is now working with the SB card. The following modules are loaded:

/sbin/lsmod | grep snd
snd_emu10k1_synth 9921 0
snd_emux_synth 31937 1 snd_emu10k1_synth
snd_seq_virmidi 9025 1 snd_emux_synth

soundcore 9633 2 snd

Not sure if recording via audacity works yet, but I will play with it.

Thanks again.
