There is a linux driver. In ALSA it's called audigyls. The module
(driver whatever you wish to call it) is on the live cd, but I cannot
get it to do a modprobe. What you can try from the command line is:
That should hopefully get you to where the module is. Then:
You may have to try variants of that such as snd-audigyls.k or
snd-audigy.ko . It may not work at all. Like I said I was unsuccessful
when I tried this, but it just might for you.
Just for laughs, from the command line try
and see what it gets you. If you don't see anything that has audigyls in
it, you may have to hit ALSA's website http://www.alsa-project.org/ and
see if you can find it there. I know they say it's supported, so it may
just be a matter of finding it, and copying it into the right directory.
Their documentation is pretty good, so that should be a good start. The
documentation of the module itself my be a help too.
