    installed Linux, sound problems

    Hi all,

    I have just installed Mandrak 10.1, but i cannot get the sound to work. I have a Sound Blaster Audigy which it seems to have found alright, do I need to do something else?

    Could anyone recommend a program to use MSN and Yahoo Messenger?

    Thanks,
    Jake

    What Graphical User Interface you using? KDE, Gnome? depending on your GUI, you may want to check the sound hasnt been muted.

    If you do a soundcard check not sure what mandrake gives for soundcard detection (You may want to see the KDE Control Panel first). However if its detected it alright more than likely your using arts which isnt really suggested to use so in the Control Panel use either OSS or Alsa, ALSA is preferred. To check if sound is muted there should be a speaker icon in the tool tray click on that and check if sound is muted.

    How do I check that its installed OK? I have done nothing to install it, althought I have seen the name Audigy SB dotted around the place when I have been trying to fix the problem. Which is what my card is.

    I will try and look for the OSS or Alsa options. ALthough I have no idea where anything is in Linux.

    Thanks

    Since Im not a KDE user and have only used it a couple of times the Control Panel (KDE Control Panel) is basically what your after, should be in the System or settings or even by itself in the KDE Menu. From here there should be something like hardware and Sound Configuration.
