Re: How do I configure Audigy LS Soundcard? ALSA, Etch, 7.1 speaker

you could try to turn your intel_sound_chip off; somewhere in the bios

sarge 2.6.8_kernel with a soundblaster card working with the ca0106
chip. install -of course- alsamixer to be able to put surrounding sounds
On my new computer I'm trying to set up my Audigy LS SoundBlaster
I have run alsaconf several times, chosing the snd-ca0106 drivermodule.
Alsaconf has found these cards:
hda-intel Intel Corporation 8210G
ca0106 Creative Labs SB Audigy LS
legacy Probe legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips
When I use ca0106 and a 7.1 speaker-system I get no sound-output.
When I use hda-intel and plug a simple 2.0 speaker into the onboard
soundcard it works.
But I bougth the extra soundcard and speakerset to get better sound, can
anyone help getting this to work.
The speaker set works, it is possible to plug in an external
sound-source (i.e. a laptop).
I hope it is just to set the soundcard up in the right way.
but: nota bene: the older versions of the ca0106 chip were bugged: see
the alsa_webpage. so you possibly have to compile a newer driver
(1.0.11) from /usr/src/alsa into your kernel.
hope this helps somewhat,
