due to my hearing impairment i have a sound blaster sound card. i havent been able to install the sound blaster software and drivers. i dont know what to install with?how can i access the or a sound configuration console so that i may better adjust volume and sound on my pardus. any help is very much appreciated.
I have a sound blaster live 5.1 card too and it's working excellent. Alsa driver packages should be installed on your system to get sound and these packages are installed as default. So you don't need to install.
Again: Have you disabled your onboard sound card via bios and run "alsaconf" with root privileges?
