Right, you don't really need the drivers from creative. This is one
of the OSS drivers that is already in the kernel sources. Sometimes
the one from creative is a little more updated than the one in the
kernel... But, eventually the updates get into the kernel driver also.
This is how I understand it, but ICBW.

So, assuming you have one of the SoundBlaster cards (Live?) with the
emu10k1 chip... If this assumption is correct, you just need to
compile your kernel with sound support.


I choose yes (y) and compile everything into the kernel image because
I prefer to not use modules here. If you prefer modules, choose "m"
instead of "y". Then do all the typical kernel compile magic =)

Beware of using this one as a module. Even if you put all the correct
stuff in your /etc/modules.conf, it doesn't exactly behave like you
might expect it to do. It does not seem to autoload, at least not for
me. So, then you would need to apparently `modprobe emu10k1' manually
before you can get your softwares to produce sound.

That is what I remember anyway...
So, you can save yourself un mal di testa by choosing "y" for this
kernel feature.
