How to change sound driver in CentOS?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to linux...so this may be obvious...but I have the Dell Version of SoundBlaster Live 5.1 and it uses a differant driver then the regular version and CentOS only has a automatic soundcard checker, and it uses the regular driver. All I need to know is how to change the driver. I've installed a new version of ALSA and it didn't fix the problem. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

You are correct that the Dell (and some Gateway) soundblaster cards are proprietary cards and are made specifically for Dell...

 

Without knowing what the actual sound card model is (there are quite a few like this) one can't tell which driver to use. I read a while back that there were some being worked on. If you can determine which one is in your system, either through the Dell support site (using the tag number), or looking at the card itself (there should be a stamp or sticker on the sound card) then someone may be able to help.

 

The number should be CT-xxxx, where xxx is the numerical model number.
