After many hours spend, my EMU 0404 work fine.

In order to make it work :
- install ubuntu 10.04 (mine is 64 bits)
- go to emu0404 - Documentation Ubuntu Francophone (sorry, french doc) and copy/paste the first script in an executable file (chmod +x)
- launch the script, and when it asks the version of alsa you have, specify 1.0.23. It will install the latest version of alsa drivers, that seem to be ok with EMU 0404 (even if 1.0.15 is supposed to work fine with EMU0404). Rem: don't ask the script to apply the EMU patch.

After that and a reboot, your soundcard will be detected as :
> lspci | grep SB
Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value
> cat /proc/asound/modules
0 snd_emu10k

Hope this will help ...
I put the script into an empty file and ran it in terminal, however it is still in french. I know very little french and had no clue what is was saying in the terminal. I tried to translate the script through word and Bing and redo it but the translation kills something in the script. Oh well still no love on emu 0404 on the English side. Thanks for trying to help.
