Mentin the exact make and model of your yamaha sound card...
mention its model number.

is it builtin the motherboard, if yes, mention the exact make and model of your motherboard
Is it a non builtin pci based sound card?

By default the kernel has support for most yamaha models.

Which distribution are u using?

As a first step, if u are sure, your sound card is supported under the current kernel, just obtain, install and run sndconfig.

If you have redhat, u will most probably be having sndconfig by default.

I will explain that in detail later...first mention the make and model of your sound card...and post the complete info/query when asking questions.

There is no download page which would give u the download location of all the sound card drivers.There are different locations to download different sound card drivers.

Why didnt u mention the make and model/type of your sound card and the distro and kernel u r using?

Mention the make and model of your sound card.

Alwayz post complete details when asking a question.

Try running sndconfig to see if it gets auto detected and installed.

As root, run 'updatedb'. Once its complete run 'locate opl',

I'm running RH9 (dont ask) and I saw a bunch of sound drivers such as...
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/opl3.o
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/opl3sa.o
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/opl3sa2.o

after running 'locate opl'

Try loading one of these drivers as root
e.g. '/sbin/insmod opl3'

and then check out the sound.

To remove modules you do /sbin/rmmod
and to list all currently loaded modules do /sbin/lsmod

Modules are like legos , they snap into the kernel to provide it with some
hardware capabilities.

Let me know what happens.

Good Luck

Yes, try those opl3 sound modules first.

Load/insert them using the insmod command:

insmod modulename

e,g insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/sound/opl3.o

so on...

modules are inserted using the insmod command.

Modules are loaded using the /etc/modules.conf and using the modprobe and depmod commands.

As a first step, insert them ony by one using the insmod command.See if they work.If they work good, otherwise try downloading other drivers and try using them.

Also check out http://www.alsa-project.org

There is a link to a sound Card page to show which cards are supported, and which isn't.
