Installing SoundBlaster 16 on SuSE Linux Box


This doc explains how to set up SoundBlaster 16 card on the SuSE Linux Box. SuSE comes with the appropriate modules, so it's just a matter of setting the config properly.
  1. Edit /etc/conf.modules
    Add this line:
    alias sound sb
  2. Run this command:
    modprobe sb
  3. startx, if necessary
  4. That's it!! Just need to figure out how to appropriately run the modprobe command each time system is rebooted. Otherwise, you will need to run it each time you boot.
