Mandrake 9 and Soundblaster 5.1



Hey guy's today is my first time installing and using Linux, everything so far is going real good......except, Linux is not finding my sound card (Soundblaster live! 5.1). Any ideas on what to do. thanks

that's wired, it found mine and all that (I'm using SoundBlaster LIVE! Plantum 5.1).... try slecting SoundBlaster from the sound card list thing that well be in Mandrake Control Center under Hardware.


Thx for the reply......it turned out that the v. I used was BETA 3 so I did a clean install and used the actual Mandrake 9.0 and all is well in Gnome land.../hehe/ no prob. found the soundcard and every other device with no problems. Must admit for my first time using this that it is a nice OS.....another question though do you have any recomendations for a player(mp3,DivX,avi,etc...).:D


Simonsoft Network
yeah, get the DivX codec (if your a total newbie like I am, then all I have it say is good luck with installing it ;)) and AVIPlay (or something like that).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
