I can find it using command lines in the terminal:

But all I get under the sound settings is the infamous Dummy Output. If I click on input or output I get the "no input or output sources are currently available.

I've tried most everything I found under the sun regarding getting my EMU 0404 pcie to work... but apparently my old DOS days are no more and linux commands are a mystery to me.

The card works like a charm under Win7 Pro and XP. I want it in Linux Mint 18.1.

I've tried the Gnome Alsa Mixer and that crashes if I go to edit the sound card properties.

Can anyone please help me figure this out.

So far I'm really enjoying Linux Mint. It is so much faster than anything Microsoft has... blows them out of the water.

Thank You,
Bill

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions ... 175505881/

try this first;

Code: Select all

modprobe -r snd_hda_intel && modprobe snd_hda_intel
one person by unloading and reloading the sound driver got his to work.

http://www.emu.com/index.php/support-e-mu-0404-pcie

If all other fails, maybe this will work yours also.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/emu10k1/

Here's how to install it. Notice it's 2014 date.

https://askubuntu.com/questions/264919/ ... ith-ubuntu

Anything that's latest on this should be here.

The first command:

Code: Select all

modprobe -r snd_hda_intel && modprobe snd_hda_intel
modprobe: ERROR: ../libkmod/libkmod-module.c:793 kmod_module_remove_module() could not remove 'snd_hda_intel': Operation not permitted
Tried the same command under su and it just sat there like it wanted me to do something... but nothing. No error message or any message at all.

The emu driver link is for DOS and Windblows. I sincerely doubt it would work in Linux... I haven't seen andy old DOS commands work in Linux with the exception of cd for change directory.

I'm going to slap this thing into submission. Let's see if any of the other (sourceforge, askubuntu and alsaproject) works for me.

I'll let you know.

That did absolutely nothing except make a directory under /usr/src/alsa

Back to the drawing board.

Thank you for trying to help me.

I've probably fudged up the sound as I've been poking around trying to get Mint to see this damned card.

If I do it, this will be the 2nd fresh install of Mint 18.1 and that's getting old real quick.

I comprehend this is an open source OS, but why make something as simple as a sound card so effin" difficult. There has to be 4 quintillion answers all over the net and none of them seem to work.

Mint sees the damned card, but that's it. "Hey look.... a sound card. I know, let's f with this guy and not allow it to make any sound, so he'll keep using crappy Windblows for his little home studio setup.

If anyone would like to hear some of my music. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default ... tent=music and I would suggest Dead Slow or Gravy95. Both are decent and were recorded on a Windblows setup with this very soundcard.

G'dammit - I want sound in Mint so I can record more music. Anyone? Please???

You seem frustrated by it all. Have you given 17.3 version a whirl instead? It's still supported fully for another 2 years. It might work better for you in the interim and by then maybe whatever is the problem in 18 for you will have been solved.

Why did you use su? The command is sudo.

Go figure?

I dumped (formatted both the linux partition and the swap partition, then did a clean install with all the updates. I even turned the onboard sound back on in BIOS. That card works, but recording any music with it is like using 2 soup cans and a string. Plus it sounds like ass.

Besides I have 4 studio monitors and a subwoofer that will not attach to the onboard sound. They require 1/4" unbalanced plugs. They are crisp and clean with absolutely no coloring to the sound. Just what you need to hear your recordings.

Well I tried sudo as you requested and....

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe -r snd_hda_intel && modprobe snd_hda_intel
[sudo] password for bill: 
modprobe: FATAL: Module snd_hda_intel is in use.

Any ideas on what to do now? I can disable the onboard sound in the BIOS, but will Mint pick up the EMU? It never has, but in all previous installs, I had already disabled the onboard sound in the hope that the EMU would be found and work in Mint.

Yeah... you could say I'm a little frustrated. I've read and tried so many different things all over the place trying to get the EMU to work and they do nothing at all... probablly messing something up with the OS somewhere.

I really do appreciate that you're trying your best to help. Anything else you could get me to try would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

yeah,....cheat. Make another copy of snd_hda_intel and rename it to snd_hda_intel2 and add it as a new mod to the kernel and assign the device to that.

May work, may not. It also may not be that easy since there are 4 folders and 5 symlink folders based on a search I did, and then the programming inside each might need changing. Yes, must be an easier way.

It sees the emu yet assigns noting for it while the onbord has codecs loading. Can I force the emu to load codecs? All that shows up right now under any of the sound settings is the stupid onboard card. One would think the EMU would show as a secondary card or some such!!?!

Or:

Code: Select all

lsmod |grep snd_hda_intel

hah, this claims you CAN use a different name on the same module so it can be used concurrent with the original named module.

http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/11/mod ... feedburner
4. Load New Modules with the Different Name to Avoid Conflicts

Consider, in some cases you are supposed to load a new module but with the same module name another module got already loaded for different purposes.

If for some strange reasons, the module name you are trying to load into the kernel is getting used (with the same name) by a different module, then you can load the new module using a different name.

To load a module with a different name, use the modprobe option -o as shown below.

$ sudo modprobe vmhgfs -o vm_hgfs

$ lsmod | grep vm_hgfs
vm_hgfs 50772 0

First:

lsmod |grep snd_hda_intel
snd_hda_intel 40960 3
snd_hda_codec 135168 3 snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_codec_generic,snd_hda_intel

snd 81920 20 snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_ac97_codec,snd_hwdep,snd_timer,snd_pcm,snd_seq,snd_rawmidi,snd_hda_codec_generic,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel,snd_emux_synth,snd_seq_virmidi,snd_emu10k1,snd_seq_device

I tried the modprobe command, but -o is not an option. See below

Usage:
modprobe [options] [-i] [-b] modulename
modprobe [options] -a [-i] [-b] modulename [modulename...]
modprobe [options] -r [-i] modulename
modprobe [options] -r -a [-i] modulename [modulename...]
modprobe [options] -c
modprobe [options] --dump-modversions filename
Management Options:
-a, --all Consider every non-argument to
be a module name to be inserted
or removed (-r)
-r, --remove Remove modules instead of inserting
--remove-dependencies Also remove modules depending on it
-R, --resolve-alias Only lookup and print alias and exit
--first-time Fail if module already inserted or removed
-i, --ignore-install Ignore install commands
-i, --ignore-remove Ignore remove commands
-b, --use-blacklist Apply blacklist to resolved alias.
-f, --force Force module insertion or removal.
implies --force-modversions and
--force-vermagic
--force-modversion Ignore module's version
--force-vermagic Ignore module's version magic

Query Options:
-D, --show-depends Only print module dependencies and exit
-c, --showconfig Print out known configuration and exit
-c, --show-config Same as --showconfig
--show-modversions Dump module symbol version and exit
--dump-modversions Same as --show-modversions

General Options:
-n, --dry-run Do not execute operations, just print out
-n, --show Same as --dry-run
-C, --config=FILE Use FILE instead of default search paths
-d, --dirname=DIR Use DIR as filesystem root for /lib/modules
-S, --set-version=VERSION Use VERSION instead of `uname -r`
-s, --syslog print to syslog, not stderr
-q, --quiet disable messages
-v, --verbose enables more messages
-V, --version show version
-h, --help show this help

I feel fairly ignorant. Which option should I be using when -o isn't there?

I tried searching for vmhgfs and vm_hgfs and nothing came up at all. Must be a command line feature or something?

Too bad they removed such an easy method in the 10 years since. I would try using or or more of those "force" ones but also with the "dry run" added, just to see what happens.

Someone who deals more with kernel issues and modules needs to see this thread and give the answer.

maybe You can do something in alsa that solves the problem.

Code: Select all

cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

What you need to do is find someone who knows more about ALSA and/or creating and using mods, perhaps you can send private note to xenopeek. If he doesn't know, then he probably knows who does.

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=62313

We do know in past there was a way to create a clone of a mod, install it, and have it run a second device that needed the same driver. That should still be available. As I said, probably in the "force" functions in modprobe, or the ALSA settings, or combo of the two.

Well... I PM'ed the person you recommended, but I guess he hasn't been on the forum yet to either read.. or maybe he didn't notice my PM to him???

I'm still trying, but not really getting anywhere with this card. It seems to be rather tedious even in Windows. I have to load specialized drivers directly from the EMU site to get it to work in any version of Windows - XP and 7 Pro 64 is what I have on here. I have to use Windows for work. Yes... I work from home.... telecommute to a company in Ohio. I don't see any need for Windows 10 or any other versions of Windows.

I wonder if it'll work in Remix OS (android). I doubt it, but I loaded Remix just to see what it is like. I'll probably dump it and install OSX... just so I can play with a hackintosh too. If I get tired of the others (I''m keeping Mint regardless of he sound problems) I'll just resize the partitions and make everything have more space... I guess?

I'm trying to be patient, but apparently xenopeek is too busy, or just not around???

Can anyone please give me some pointers... any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Bill

Without any real help here in the mint forums... although there was a nice person who tried really hard to help the best he could.

Here's the cure for all EMU cards whether internal or usb/external.

Code: Select all

cd ~
wget ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/firmware/alsa-firmware-1.0.28.tar.bz2
tar xjf alsa-firmware-1.0.28.tar.bz2
cd alsa-firmware-1.0.28
./configure --enable-buildfw
cd emu/
make
sudo make install
It works like a charm. I can record, have all the effects, synths, midi, everything works like it does in every other OS I have.

I'm not aware how to mark a thread as solved, if there is even such a thing here, but if a mod comes by and can mark is as solved, I would really appreciate it.
