how do i use my sb live ls with fedora core 2?

just installled fedora core 2 and i have the sound blaster live ls 5.1 ..... i try to go to volume control and it says no mixer elements or devile/control shit found.... i don't hear a test sound either when doing the soundcard detection ... and nothing is working..........




someone out there who knows how to get it to work plz post back or email me at





I got the same sound card as your, mine is works fine without any problem.


make sure you plug in the right jacket.


to check the sound use: (need to use root use: su)


# system-config-soundcard


you might want to install gnome-alsamixer


# apt-get install gnome-alsamixer


hope this help you.


im haveing the same problem. when i type


apt-get install gnome-alsamixer


it gives me this


[root@localhost mattman87]# apt-get install gnome-alsamixer

bash: apt-get: command not found


Mattman, check out, there you can find the apt-get package.


This will solve all of your rpm needs.


Check other forums on how to install apt-get, or how to configure it. It's very easy, and much nicer than up2date.


Anyway, if you have any questions on this, just ask. o_O


now i get this


[root@localhost mattman87]# apt-get install gnome-alsamixer

Reading Package Lists... Done

Building Dependency Tree... Done

E: Couldn't find package gnome-alsamixer


always use apt-get this way


first thing to do is update it !


apt-get update


next thing is to get whatever you want


apt-get install some_package


an easier way is to do it in one line like so


apt-get update && apt-get install some_package


hope this helps
