This is beginning to get depressing -- I've installed Mandrake 6.5
(which I think is based on RH 6.1? Not sure) but built the Linux
2.2.14 kernel from scratch, and still am having problems with my
Soundblaster Live! card.
Both the "emu10k1" driver and the OSS driver (I'm willing to pay to
get this card working!) have the same problem ... analog passthru
(playing CD, gating the microphone to the speakers) works, but the WAV
device just gives me a high pitched hum (different pitch depending on
the sound file, and length seems appropriate for the sound file).
I've ruled out failure of the card hardware (win98 talks to it fine)
and the configuration between win98 and linux is consistant (x1800,
I DL'd the eval OSS driver assuming it would be better, but if the
only remaining problem is the same between emu10k1 and oss, I'll take
the cheaper alternative. Any ideas on what might be going on here? Or
should I get OSS into the loop? I'd like to use the "emu10k1" driver
if possible, since I already have it's source at hand.
