Oh...well the thing is that with most hardware you usually should wait a bit before buying it with the intention of using Linux unless you know it is supported already or will be through either a soon to be released kernel or driver support from the maker. Intel has kind of been flip-flop with support too. The idiots killed the Atom because they continue to make it Linux unfriendly. I don't know what they think but they should have realized that people are going to associate Windows+Atom as a bad experience because that's what it was (or so a lot of people told me).

Definitely strange about the Amarok thing. But again I moved to Audacious even though I still miss the flashy parts of Amarok at times.

Sweet another E17 guy.
I am surprised it has never received the following I feel it deserves . Although it is not that spectacular out of the box , you can do a hell of a lot with it .
I particularly like the mouse menu - it is always right there when you want it . Tried the version in Ubuntu's repo once - just the plain vanilla version with minimum packages not that impressed - bit I would still use it rather than Gnome shell or Unity .

Hey everyone.  I'm looking at using Linux for my Car-puter in my sig, Project Rose.  What I would like to do is be able to output stereo across 6 channels using 3 3.5 mm jacks on either the onboard sound, but more preferably on an actual dedicated sound card.

 

For the sound card, it would have to be PCIe and preferably low-profile as it will be a mITX build.  An external USB sound card is also an option.

 

For the actual sound output, it would have to upmix stereo to 5.1.  So basically copy the front LR to the rear LR and then send a mixed LR signal to both the center and sub channels.

 

I plan to use the front LR and rear LR for the front and back pairs of speakers using 3.5 mm > RCA cables, then using a 3.5 mm > RCA form the center/sub output to go to my sub-woofer amp.

 

I managed to get the output I want using FooBar's Matrix Mixer and my Xonar DG in Windows on my main rig, so worst case I use a setup like that, but I'm hoping that Linux can provide driver level stereo upmix so that any program I open on the car-puter will have it's stereo output properly upmixed.

 

So far I've been looking at OpenELEC, XBMCBuntu, and even thinking about trying a build of UbuntuTV.

You'd be better off using onboard sound or stick with basic analog out on a soundcard unless you're ready to start hacking up some delicious configurations. Sounds cards are one of the worst areas in Linux right now, and probably the last of the major areas that doesn't get much support. While it is getting better, it's still not that great and takes a bit of configuring to get right ( at least for higher quality multi-channel stuff ).

Hmm, looks like I might need to look at a good hardware splitter then.  Either 1 > 3 3.5 mm splitter, or 1 > 3 RCA splitter.

I decided to upgrade to newer hardware. As a Linux noob, reaching in to the depths of kernels and the like was beyond my
comprehension at the time. If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have made that mistake. However, I'm glad now that I did,
as I find my change of distro has served me well. I was so used to windows, where upgrading hardware was simple. I have learned a lot
from the whole experience. At that time I was dual booting Linux and Windows, I now feel comfortable enough to run Linux only.

Really? I've always had far fewer problems with sound card drivers on Linux than on Windows. And with a range of hardware too; from onboards and cheap PCI cards through to professional / producer grade multi-channel hardware. For me, it was the user land that sucked hard (ALSA, OSS, Pulse, etc - they're all half implemented kludges. ASIO and DirectSound run circles around anything Linux has to offer).
