Unfortunately, I'm a brand new Linux user and know almost nothing about it (just installed last night). The majority of drivers work, except for sound. I'm running fedora 11, and I have a Creative SoundBlaster X-fi.
I found some instructions how to do it, but towards the end it appears I had some errors. I extracted the files to the Download folder, and I even went through some basic terminal commands, while in the directory as the root user, I used:
yum -y install kernel-devel
It went through the yum command and downloaded some files, but errored out on the make said some directory was not found.
Furthermore, based on another post I found, someone made mention fedora does not support multiple sound cards at the same time, i.e. I have an onboard sound card (SigmaTel, doesn't work either).
Lastly, just to try and get some sound to play, I tried to open one of my mp3's and I got another error saying codec was missing. I've obviously not installed the drivers for my sound card. Any help would be nice in getting either sound device work (I can't live without music).
Thanks in advance.
