Hi all,
I installed gentoo successfully today \:D/
But I can't get ALSA to work :(
I did it exactly like written in the desktop config. guide on the gentoo-homepage.
But when I do /etc/init.d/alsasound start I get the following:
Code:

 * Loading ALSA drivers...
 * Using ALSA OSS emulation
 * Loading: snd-seq-oss
 * Loading: snd-pcm-oss
 * Loading: snd-emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.25-gentoo-r1/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.25-gentoo-r1/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.25-gentoo-r1/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.25-gentoo-r1/kernel/sound/pci/emu10k1/snd-emu10k1.o: insmod snd-emu10k1 failed
 * Running card-dependent scripts
 * Restoring Mixer Levels
 * No mixer config in /etc/asound.state, you have to unmute your card!    [ ok ]

Dmesg says following:

Code:
EMU10K1/Audigy soundcard not found or device busy


But I don't know why this is, I even changed the PCI slot and I had the card working on SuSE and Slackware before :(

grep audio /proc/pci says following:

Code:
Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 7).


So he gets the device ?

Can anyone help me on this ?

Greetings & Thanks Ontherun

Are you using kernel 2.4 or 2.6?

With the 2.4 kernel you need to do:
Code:
emerge emu10k1

to get Live/Audigy cards module. Also, make sure you do a
Code:
modules-update

before trying to start /etc/init.d/alsasound. That might be your problem, but I'm not sure, I use 2.6 now (which works well with the Live/Audigy cards).

Not if you're gonna use alsa, then you should just emerge alsa-driver and alsa-utils. Possibly alsa-lib too. If you're using kernel 2.4 that is.
If you are using a 2.6 kernel you only need to emerge alsa-utils.

OnTheRun:

Did you compile your kernel with the oss sb live module?
If you did then it's possible the oss module is blocking alsa.
Do a:
Code:
lsmod

and post the output.

You only need to have sound card support enabled in the kernel so do a:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

Go to Sound --->
and check that sound card support is enabled, leave the rest blank (n).
Recompile the kernel if necessary.

Hi all,
thanks very much for your answers :)
I just installed Sound Card Support as module.
I haven't any other card-driver installed.
I use Kernel 2.4.
lsmod gives me just 3c59x (network).

Weird. Do a:
Code:
cat  /proc/interrupts
and check if there are any conflicts. (but since you already moved it around maybe it doesn't matter)
Also what version of alsa-driver are you using?
You could try and update to the "unstable" one.
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge alsa-driver

EMU10K1/Audigy soundcard not found or device busy

Are you really sure that you have no driver compiled in the kernel * or m?
(I know, you said you don't...I'm just making sure :wink: )

You could try gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.5 and see if you can get alsa working.
Been running it myself for quite a while without any major problems (knock on wood, spit on the cat and all that... :D )
