The CT4170 SoundBlaster "Vibra" cards are old 16-bit ISA PnP cards, and were not detected at install by Linux kernels 2.16.15-27. You need to get the "isapnptools" package from the Fedora or CentOS sites, and do the following:
2. Install isapnptools using dpkg -i path-to-downloaded file .
3. Create and edit file /etc/isapnp.conf and put the following contents in it:
(READPORT 0x0273)
(ISOLATE PRESERVE)
(IDENTIFY *)
(VERBOSITY 2)
(CONFLICT (IO FATAL)(IRQ FATAL)(DMA FATAL)(MEM FATAL)) # or WARNING (CONFIGURE CTL00f4/-1 (LD 0
(INT 0 (IRQ 5 (MODE +E)))
(DMA 0 (CHANNEL 0))
(DMA 1 (CHANNEL 1))
(IO 0 (SIZE 16) (BASE 0x0240))
(IO 1 (SIZE 2) (BASE 0x0300))
(IO 2 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0388))
(NAME "CTL00f4/-1[0]{Audio }")
(ACT Y)
))
(WAITFORKEY)
4. Run "isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf". If it reports errors, you must change configuration above (it is suited to my setup). Try "pnpdump -c" and put its output in /etc/isapnp.conf file. If it does not help, you must find the correct configuration manually, for example change port to 0x220. For full list of possible values run pnpdump. Note that if you change the configuration, you must change options for modprobe below.
5. Create and edit file /etc/modprobe.d/sbvibra and put the following options in it:
alias snd-card-0 snd_sb16
options snd_sb16 port=0x240 irq=5 dma8=0 dma16=1 isapnp=0
6. Run "update-modules"
7. Run "modprobe snd-card-0". If it works OK (check if "ls -l /dev/dsp" shows that file is present), perform the steps below to make setup permanent:
8. Append following line to /etc/modules:
snd-card-0
8. Go to system configuration (in GUI) and choose "Services". Enable "isapnp" service and tick option to start it at boot.
Hope this helps :)

Sound doesn't work under linux


We'd need to know what computer you're using to be able to help here, Linux sometimes needs specific drivers (and sometimes has no available driver at all) for devices to function.

The best bet is to look up what sound device your using, like a sound card, or what motherboard your computer has, and do a google search for that device and "linux driver".

You should find what you're looking for, if it exists, when you do that.

What are the issues about Linux Operating System


There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.
