X-FI extreme music driver? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I downgraded to my Audigy 2 LS Gamer edition which is supported with full 5.1 compatibility as of right now on ALSA. My X-Fi is going into my new machine. some of the crap that creative has pulled lately just pisses me off.

For Linux you don't need a state of the art card, and much less a Creative card. All Creative has over the competition is EAX, which doesn't work on Linux (proprietary format). DTS and Dolby are also moot for the same reason. All you should concern yourself is if the card is supported or not and on raw audio capabilities.

Yeah. well I already have it.
I mainly boot XP because I play CS:S a lot, mostly scrims and I still have most of my stuff on here.
The only thing holding me back from making the complete switch is some compatibility and SOUND! Ahh.
I used rm -rF and not just r. But the folder under usr/lib for oss did dissapear. although it still shows up as installed anf YaSt gives a script error or something when I try to uninstall it.

The original x86_64 oss rpm I installed (binary?) installed fine, but did absolutely nothing but sit on my computer and be there. Not letting me remove it.
OSS is like that annoying little 12 year old that lives accross the street, youre nice to it once and it wont leave you alone for the rest of your humane life.
I feel so violated =*(

I just got the OSS package to work with my Xtreme Music, but my volume control still shows that there is no device in Ubuntu 7.10 What do I need to do to get a working volume manager on the x64 version of this os?

Edit**
Also, I've got Flash installed now, but I get no sound from flash videos. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I can help you out with Gnome volume control, though I've yet to correctly recompile the .c file that gets edited for sound in flash.

The Gnome volume applet works off of Gstreamer, an audio backend. You simply need to download and install the OSS plugin for Gstreamer. I've hosted the tarball (don't count on it to be up to date in the future....) since it's a pain in the butt to find for x64, and the readme gives install instructions.

Well, you do have other options for the install. If you used an RPM before, try building from source. Make sure you satisfied all dependencies, too. I just though of that. Also try using YUM rather than YaST to uninstall or repair OSS. Sometimes things don't work one way, but if you're willing to play with it you can get it working perfectly. Thats one of the downsides (or upsides) of having a operating system and programs worked on by millions of people - not everything is going to function the same way.

EDIT:
And one more thing - give "rpm –e oss-linux" a shot. I've been reading through the man pages and stumbled upon that for RPM-based installs, perhaps YaST is freaking out because you installed OSS manually.
