X-FI extreme music driver? - Page 2

Open a terminal, type "soundon"

If that returns errors report back here, if not run "ossdetect" and your card should be listed there.

If soundon returns no errors yet your card does not display, try playing audio regardless - ossdetect has a known bug where it will detect a card yet fail to display it.

Well. Weird.
Neither command is recognized. soundon and ossdetect fail at doing anything.
I know it said installed though. I never uninstalled ALSA, does this need to be done? I assumed they could co-exist.
I cant see anything of oss though, only sign its on my computer is when I did the rpm -i it said already installed.

They do exist side by side.

You need to run the commands as root or they will return as not found. I should have specified that, sorry. If ossdetect runs and returns no output run ossdetect -v.

I tried installing the x386 version.
It conflicts with the other one installed which does absolutely nothing apparently its just sitting there.
I tried deleting the folder for OSS under usr/lib but it still shows up. Yast wouldnt uninstall it either. How the heck do I get this thing off my system? It doesnt work for s***.

I'm not too familiar with RPM-based systems, sorry. I'd assume there is a CLI equivalent to dpkg on Debian systems that would allow you to purge the files but I could not tell you what it is.

And one more troubleshooting question, sorry. Did you build from source or use a binary package?

lol sounds like a mess

If there is a folder called "OSS" in /usr/lib, use this to delete it:

Code:
sudo rm -r /usr/lib/OSS
I don't know if just going out and deleting the folder is going to ruin anything, though, so be careful.

I've been trying to get my X-Fi card working for a LONG time in Ubuntu x86_64 as well as i386. Creative is refusing to release their source codes for us to make our own driver support so the ALSA project is reverse engineering the card for production of their own drivers. Currently there is no support for ALSA with X-Fi. Also note that with the production of the newer X-Fi's, the chipset on the card itself has changed so depending on what X-Fi you have will determine what level of support (which is little to none) you recieve.

See this link for a list of supported creative cards
ALSA Project

Something that you may want to try is
Ubutnu X-Fi solution

Add: Note that I've also contacted Creative regarding this. Their response was basically, "We don't offer support to Linux, go away."

Yeah, I tried all of their "beta" drivers before finding OSS and giving it a shot. It got my card working pretty easilly which is why I'm kinda disappointed it's not working for Pooping^fish - seemed to be a fairly strait-forward install for me.
