I'm running Mandrake Linux 8.1 with Kernel version
2.4.8 and the Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer. After
changing the config files to match my version, I
compiled the driver code with 'make'. I then
completed the installation with 'make install' and
finally editing /etc/conf.modules and adding the line
'alias sound emu10k1' to the end of the file. After
doing all this, my card still fails to function. Am
I missing any steps?

    Did the driver load ok? Try 'modprobe emu10k1', did you get
    any error messages? Can you open aumix(or any other mixer
    program), does it complain, or does it show the volume controls?

    i have installed very old audigy drivers , the first one
    that is released on the ftp site. but what was necessary for
    installing them was first run make clean. (then all the
    binairy are gone. thios is needed because msot times you
    have a different system then where the dirvers where
    compiled on). then make and then make isntall after that the
    driver worked fine. by me.

    Okay, I attempted to install the drivers again, this time
    paying more attention to some of the messages generated by
    the compiler. When I run 'make' the first time, it does
    some work and then tells me to do run 'make' again, and
    when I do it works for a while and then kicks out with the
    following messages:

    main.c: In function emu10k1_probe': main.c:1117: warning: suggest explicit braces to avoid ambiguouselse'
    main.c: At top level:
    main.c:1247: parse error before string constant
    main.c:1247: warning: type defaults to int' in declaration ofMODULE_LICENSE'
    main.c:1247: warning: function declaration isn't a
    prototype
    main.c:1247: warning: data definition has no type or
    storage class
    make: *** [main.o] Error 1

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I uploaded a new tarball with a fix for the MODULE_LICENSE
    problem. Give it a try.

    Okay, the new tarbell compiled fine. I also compiled the
    tools included with the driver. However, I still have no
    sound. modprobe emu10k1 produces no output whatsoever(not
    sure if it should?) and the mixer program that came with
    Linux opens but shows no volume controls. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Update: For some reason, after compiling and installing
    the drivers, I was able to get sound from games I have
    installed on the system. However, KDE apps and system
    sounds would not play(i.e. KDE Media Player). The mixer
    showed volume settings. However, after restarting the
    computer, no sounds will play and when I start the Sound
    Mixer app included with KDE, it gives me the error
    message: "Invalid Mixer - Audigy - Emu10k1". modprobe
    emu10k1 still returns no output, and I now have strange
    artifacts (white ASCII blocks) flashing on and off at one
    position towards the right side of the screen when I'm
    using a non-X console. How do I remove these drivers?
    Help!
