Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: system-config-soundcard displays following error:
The snd-emu10k1 driver could not be loaded. This soundcard may not be
compatible with Red Hat Linux.
Expected Results: Impressive sound experience.
You could try to run:
amixer set Master 100 unmute
amixer set Wave 100 unmute
amixer set PCM 100 unmute
amixer set CD 100 unmute
Are you using a Dell Dimension desktop? If so, this bug could be a
dupe of bug 107060.
No, i'm afraid not. No dupe.
I have a handcrafted machine (Epox EP8KTA-3 pro board and a
SoundBlaster Live! 1024).
I don't think Alexander's suggestion is helping either since the mixer
applications don't appear to see the soundcard at all (i will try it
But i've noticed that there have been quite a lot of updates to ALSA
and the emuk-driver in the 2.6.3 kernel. I think i will try the new
kernel, maybe the problem is accidentially solved.
When running the 'Soundcard detection' applet I am told that it is
unable to load the snd-emu10k1 module. After I ran aumix and adjusted
the sound up from zero it did work, so I think this is a bug in the
capplet not in the alsa installation.
I hate to admit it but after applying the amixer settings the
soundcard works. :(
I apologize for the inconvenience.
