Description Leos Bitto 2001-04-17 05:57:28 EDT
After fresh installation of RH 7.1 on my home PC I noticed that my
Soundblaster Live sounds really odd - I cannot hear neraly any basses, etc.
Installing the newest driver (emu10k1.o) from Creative fixes it.

This is how RedHat's driver introduces himself:

Creative EMU10K1 PCI Audio Driver, version 0.7, 20:53:49 Apr  8 2001
PCI: Found IRQ 9 for device 02:0e.0
emu10k1: EMU10K1 rev 4 model 0x20 found, IO at 0xb800-0xb81f, IRQ 9

And this is what Creative's driver says:

Creative EMU10K1 PCI Audio Driver, version 0.12, 11:44:28 Apr 17 2001
PCI: Found IRQ 9 for device 02:0e.0
emu10k1: EMU10K1 rev 4 model 0x20 found, IO at 0xb800-0xb81f, IRQ 9

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-04-17 06:04:01 EDT
I'm working on this. It appears that the kernel-driver has a "secret" option
to turn on bass, unfortionatly it requires editing the Makefile. I wonder why
it is not enabled by default; I assume some sblive's don't work with the option.
Comment 2 Leos Bitto 2001-04-17 09:35:43 EDT
Maybe you could consider using Creative's newer driver instead. It doesn't have
this "secret" option and works fine in its default configuration. At least for
me. ;) Current situation (with no bass) is simply not acceptable, unless you
want to use the soundcard just as a stupid beeper.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-04-18 11:30:30 EDT
I'll have a look. Anyway, this is basically the same problem as bug #32723 so
I'll mark this as a dupe of that bug to keep the info centralized.
