View Full Version : emu10k1 installation
14th December 2003, 10:05 AM
Hi, I'm having problems with installing the emu10k1 for my soundblaster 5.1 Live.
Without installing it I allready have sound through my sattelites but the rear left en right don't go as loud as the 2 fronts.
Or don't have to install it, just adjust a configuration ore something?

I also had problems with the emu10k1 driver. I found that the module options don't load dynamically. In other words, when the driver is loaded automatically via the
alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
entry in /etc/modules.conf, it loads without processing any of the associated post-install or pre-remove parameters. I found that they would load properly when root manually loaded the module. To accomplish this automatically, I entered the following in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
su - root -c "modprobe emu10k1"
This is severely goofy and I hope that the right people are already working on the issue.

well, I tryed like you said by adding that line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local but I still no changes.
The volume in the rear spreakers are still weak.
Somebody who can help me???

alsamixer will fix your problem, on my Audigy (also emu10k1 driver) it is PCM rear that fixes it, just up that one a bit.

I allready fixed the problem on my RH9 machine but I can't remember where I did it. I know I altered a config file and set the audio output to 6 channels ore something.
Anybody knows the specifics?

My reply above was incomplete. I still had to set my audio preferences how I wanted them via other means. Specifically in my case, I was enabling bass and treble control which is off my default. I installed the emu-tools package to enable this. Your surround features might need emu-tools as well. In any case, In my experience, once I had my preferences the way I wanted, I had to take the steps outlined above so that I could make them permanent. I hope this is helpful.
Of course, as someone else suggested, ALSA may be a good answer. I have never used it personally but by most accounts, it is superior. It will also be the default sound engine in the 6.x kernel if I am not mistaken.

yeah, I highly recommend ALSA. I was too much of a moron to see that you were using OSS, sorry. Anywho, little "tweaking" is necessary once you get ALSA up and running, mainly just modifying modprobe.conf or modules.conf.
