Stefano, you might try to find any similar curses packages (using Synaptic), that have -dev or -devel added to the name. Add those, and then the commands again.

Thanks for the info on

Thanks for the info on version 2.1 of 64studio. Time release planned? If I open Synaptic and trying missing libraries, tells me that are already installed (libncurses5 ver 5.5.5). How do I workaround this problem? Thank you. Stefano

If all goes well, 1.0.15 could be included in the 2.1 release, or just after. Cheers,

Hi. I am trying to install alsa 1.0.15 which supports my card but, I found an error. Alsa-driver and alsa-lib are ok. But when I "make", alsa-utils returns an error. Missing "curses library". What are they? Where can I download? Should I uninstall what I have already done before (alsa-driver and alsa-lib 1.0.15) and redoing everything from, or can continue from where I left? Thanks. Stefano P.S. Why alsa 1.0.15 is not included in 64Studio? When will it be included?

Alsa-utils is needed to configure your alsa system with alsaconf etc. Don't remove the new libraries and drivers because they "configured and made" it to your system. When configuring throws an error, look for lines that begin with "missing ..blaablaa". Then try find these with synaptic's search tool. Alsa is a software library that is connected to its drivers and so it isn't such a pain-in-the-butt to configure/make/make install(as root) like any other graphical software. It would a good to include Debian repositories to find all missing dependencies - documentation can be found on this site for that. Once the dependencies are met, you should be able to configure your alsa1.0.15 system aallrighdy then. For a working alsa system you need alsa-driver, alsa-libs and alsa-utils. Your kernel is already configured by 64Studio "crew" to support alsa so no worries there. I'm using alsa 1.0.15 configured from source with 64Studio kernel without any problems.

Hello eto, I suggest download everything. First you have to compile the alsa-driver and alsa-lib and so on, then be sure that the kernel modules load correctly into your runninng kernel. Be sure you are root in a terminal window and then execute "alsaconf" Before execute "/etc/init.d/alsasound stop" and "/etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop" Alsa will find teh soundcard. At the end of the process alsaconf load the driver for the E-MU Soundcard and you cann select it with jack control. Before compiling be sure you have the corresponnding header files for your running kernel (if not installed): As root for example : "aptitude install linux-headers-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486" 64studio rocks Andreas My Hardware: ASUS M2N4-SLI NFORCE4 Chipset AMD 3800+ X2 Gainward Nvidia 7300GS Grapihcs M-Audiophile 24/96 2 GB Ram PC800/6400 - Corsair Twin2x XMS

Thanks porisija, for help me. Your explanation is very understandable even by a new-user-Linux like me. I try it. Thanks again Stefano

E-MU Alsa support

ALSA supports E-MU-type cards by Creative, including yours, beginning from Alsa version 1.0.15.I picked up this information from Alsas website. A native installation of 64Studio - correct me if I'm wrong - has an older version of Alsa, therefore - no sound. However, if you wish, you can download the source code for Alsa 1.0.15 over the net and compile it to your system. It's a simple procedure of: ./configure && make && make install (last as root) in your alsa source code directories. Don't forget to run alsaconf and alsactl -store after compilation and reboot - or run init 1 and then init 2 (as root, you will be prompted). Good luck.
