Creative SB Live! Series (WDM) Help in SuSe 8.2 Pro
Posted 03 October 2003 - 03:31 AM
I am new to the board and to Linux. I just installed SuSe 8.2 Professional and the automatic configuration did not work for my sound card, Modem and Network Adapter. The OS recognized (listed in YaST) my Soundblaster Live! Soundcard but when I tested it , it did not work. I also tried using other listed Soundblaster drivers in YaST but that did not help. I tried turning volume all the way up on all parameters. I am confused because on this board (under compatibilty) my soundcard is listed as compatible but when I went to both the Linux and Creative Labs Websites they both list it as not supported. Does anybody know if this soundcard will work with 8.2? If so, How the heck do I get this Altec Lansing Surround Sound 5.1 to work? If anybody can guide this Windows Wiz but Linux idiot through this dilemma, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!!

There is a binary driver available from 4FrontTechnologies. This driver is NOT open source, nor is it free, it costs 35US$.
