    Hi,,
    well I am just a newbie to Linux world.. I have installed Fedora Core 4 on my machine. Everything went fine (including that strange 'Kernel panic' msg in installation). The only problem is that I am not able to find driver for my sound-card. My sound-card is Creative Sound Blaster Live! 24 Bit. I don't know where to look for the drivers and then how to install them.
    Please help...
    Thanks...

    if ( fedora_doesn't_have_modules)
    {
    I suppose you have to recompile the kernel, to add support for the card. I think it wud be under
    Code:
     [DEVICE DRIVERS] --> [SOUND] --> [ALSA] --> [PCI] --> [*] Support for creative soundblaster pci cards. And then recompile the kernel. 
    }
    else
    {
    But doesn't fedora include generic device detection? May be it's compiled as modules. Head over to This [url=http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/] Alsa drivers page [/url] And select Creative labs. See the module section for the module you wud have to use for your card. [url=http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/index.php?vendor=vendor-Creative_Labs#matrix] Creative [/url] Here see the module name in driver and docs. Note it down and issue
    # modprobe <module>
    Post if you get any errors.
    }
    ;)
