Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
- date: June 27, 2005
I hope someone can help me out here. I have a sound blaster audigy 2 ZS sound card and I can't get it to work. I am on Ubuntu 5.04 and had it working before. I had to do a reinstall onto a new HD, old one bit the dust. I have also tried installing the alsa-driver 1.0.9b and still no sound. I have disabled onboard sound as well.
My specs are:
Asus p4p800 SE Motherboard
1280 MB of RAM (I don't know what that is in GB, may a gig in a half)
Nivida GeForce FX 5500 OC 256MB DDR AGP 8x/4x video card
Creative Labs Sound blaster Audigy 2 ZS Sound Card
Intel Celron 2.8 GHz
My lsmode gives me this:

Sound Blaster Audigy

I installed FC 2 and the sound worked just fine in the install. After I booted for the first time, I tried to play an audio CD with Kscd (sorry if the name is incorrect). No sound came from my speakers. I opened up the KDE control center and then the sound applet. The sound architecture was set to autodetect. I tried setting it to each setting and applying the settings (some of the settings were ALSA, OSS, thread safe sound). No matter what setting I had it set on, I got no sound. I would think that a distro as new as FC 2 running the new 2.6.5 kernel would have support for a Sound Blaster Audigy that was a few years old. I have the integrated AC 97 sound in my computer disabled in the BIOS, so it should not be creating any problems.
As suggested by the moderator, here is the output of lspci:

Drivers for Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 VX
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 19, 2009
I have got Creative Sound Blaster 5.1 VX card on my PCI slot.
When I login to Ubuntu, I get some irritating sound (similar to old TV sound when you do not find any channel). When I play any music or movie, there is no sound.
The same works in Windows.
Please help me in searching drivers for my hardware OR to fix it.
Thanks & Regards,
5.1 sound problem (sound blaster live and suse)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 14, 2005
I've installed a sound blaster live 24-bit under suse 9.3. It worked well, no error message.
But I only have stereo.
The connection are OK (I checked with windows).
I upgrade alsa to 1.09b
If I play a DVD with vlc, activating the 5.1 I only hear the music and sound, no speech.
If anybody have a clue.
Sorry for my poor english
Creative Recon3D + Sound Blaster Z (CA0132) Support
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 22, 2013
I have discovered a solution:
Someone noted that the 32-bit kernel plays just fine, but that the 64-bit kernel needs a special fix in /etc/rc.local. Add the following before exit0:
modprobe snd_hda_intel position_fix=1
Reboot and it will work. Someone in the ALSA team simply needs to get this patch upstream. The sound is amazingly beautiful along with the pulseaudio equalizer. Much better than Windows.
