Hello, I have installed a version of linux and I cannot seem to get the driver for my sound card install.

I have fixed several issues in regards to the kernel but there seems to be a problem with something else and I think this is the installer as right at the bottom is says

line 496: command not found
line 497: command not found

This comes up after the licence agreement so I know the commands I am using are correct as I am using the ones supplied with the driver.

Everything else seems to be ok, what can I do/check to fix this problem please?

Thanks

We're going to have to ask you the classic questions. What operating system are you using and what is the hardware, and to add to those two, where are you trying to get the drivers from?

Try getting the drivers from the Suse package manager and check with the Suse forum on you hardware. Unless the drivers from Creative specifically say for Linux you won't get them to work, and even then there may be quite a bit of configuration. If you get them from Suse they will already be configured.

Just to confirm on creatives website it does just say for linux and not suse linux so I will try that and see what happens.

Thanks

Hello all

Just to confirm this problem has been fixed ;) the sound card isn't supported by linux :) I deicded to ask in their community as directed by Tyger where I got all information needed to complete the task, so I thought I would be kind and considerate to let you guys know that this has been fixed.

I'm just puzzled why they would make a driver for a card that linux doesn't support :)

However I still have sound :) although I couldn't get it though my card I decided to give it ago on onboard sound and it works ok :).

Thanks Tyger, really appreciate the help you gave me :)

You have this backwards. Operating system developers don't support hardware, hardware manufactures support operating systems.

I know operating system developers don't support hardware :) it was the way I said it :) again lol, I wanted to put this across like as I don't know why creative would make a driver for their hardware (meaning the sound card) when Linux (the operating system) doesn't support the card (example reconize it) if you like.

I hope that makes sence :)
