Hi,
I have installed Hydrogen Drum Machine onto my Mandriva 2008 Soring Linux box. I installed using the Mandriva software manager. Mandriva recognises my Sounblaster Live card and has loaded the ALSA driver. If I try to play one of the demos no sound comes out of the speakers. Other software like Audacity, Amorak etc all play with no problems. Can anyone help please ?

What version are you running and did you check the sound settings in hydrogen?
What are the settings?

My mobo has a built in sound card as well as my Sounblaster Live PCI card. I changed the hw:0 to hw:1 and everyhting now works. It seems that the software is not smart enough to know which is the default sound card.
