Creative Labs SB Audigy LS / Alsa / No sound
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 8, 2005
Have attempted to install the following versions of alsa with varying degrees of success but to date have not heard any sound eminate from powered destop speakers.
1. Cvs version 1.0.10rc1 installed with a few workarounds but cause KDE artsd crash when loading.
2. Download version 1.0.9b from alsa-project.org installs flawlessly but produces no sound.
3. Present install is Debian Testing 'Etch' deb packages with the linux-2.6.13 kernel configured to provide ca0106 and snd* modules, again no sound.
Alsaconf configures without error and claims to find device.
During boot up the speakers pop at about the time the device is identified in dmesg.
Aplay and xmms appear to play sound files when activated wihtout sound.
MS Win2000 sound configuration is OK with Shuttle supplied driver disk.
I'd be most obliged if anyone would care to scan through the attached system information to see if any wrong entries could be causing the problem, and it is not a case of the on-board sound chi
Linux & SB Audigy 2 Plat. LineIn Recording
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 25, 2005
I am having a bit of trouble with my ArchLinux system. I have everything working except this: I cannot record from the Line-In jack on the soundcard. I use Audacity to record from the line-in jack on Windows, and in that app, there was a drop-down box to specify where you wanted to record from. On Windows, that usually said Line-In. When I switched to Linux (i really like it, by the way), I noticed that that drop-down box appeared disabled, and you couldn't select it. Upon further investigation, in the Options dialog, the only recording input item available was "/dev/dsp", which I later found out was something like a general audio output file, maybe?
Anyway, I looked into this further yet, and found that in the KMix program, even though there were many output items in that program, there was nothing on the "Input" tab - it was totally blank. I researched about drivers for this card, and was told that the kernel (mine is 2.6.11) supported this card
sb audigy 2 value on mandriva 10.2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 15, 2005
Can't get the sound going in KDE on mandriva 10.2 (2.6.11). The sound card is audigy 2 value (pci). The system recognises the card and loads emu-10k1 driver, but I can't get the sound out. Alsa mixer settings are pumped up to the max. I am probably overseeing something simple. Thanks, zilkap.
ps. Have read all relevant posts for audigy / 2 on the forum, but can't make much sense of them. Can somebody talk me through the details.

[Solved]14.04 SB Audigy SE bug
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 18, 2014
When I play sound with my SB Audigy SE audio hardware I only hear sound from the left speaker. I've just got a fresh clean install of Ubuntu 14.04, I've set my audio balance at the middle. Other OSes are functioning correctly with this audio hardware including Ubuntu 13.10.
Is there anyway I can fix this, or do I have to wait until Ubuntu fixes this into an update?
Creative Audigy SB not working with Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty on Asus A7V8XX
- date: February 11, 2008
Hello. I'm a noob, trying to get sound out of a Creative Labs Audigy SB PCI card on an ASUS A7V8X-X mobo. Problem was on an Ubuntu 7.04 partition, dual-boot with WinXP partition, which incidentally has no problem with the sound card whatsoever. Recently upgraded to Gutsy Gibbon (7.10), but still no sound. 1.5 GHz Athlon, 1.5 GB of RAM. I tried "lshw" in terminal, and it tells me that I do indeed have said sound card, with the "Emu10k1_Audigy" driver for the sound and the "Emu10k1_gameport" driver for the gameport. There is another sound chipset on the mobo, but I can't find it in the output from the lshw command.
Relavant part of lshw, run under Ubuntu 7.10:

LinuxMint Daryna SB Live 5.1 setup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 27, 2008
Mint Newbie: I'm using LinuxMint Daryna which is based on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. How do I get my 5.1 surround working properly?
I have a Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital. Mint installs an SB Live 5.1 [SB0220] (Alsa mixer) driver which does not work well. It has this blowing noise over the speakers which sounds terrible.
Are there alternate drivers I can use and if so, where do I get it and how do you install it.
How to fix no audio in FC11 on Creative SBLive and probably Audigy
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 21, 2009
EDIT: Apparently there is now an update available that will fix PulseAudio for the Creative SBLive and Audigy under FC11 - not sure if that ALSO fixes OSS? The above has info on getting OSS working again (i. e. to provide /dev/dsp) which many of my apps seem to need.
