    Phoronix: Finally, A Creative X-Fi Driver Going Into ALSA

    Support for the Creative X-Fi sound cards on Linux has been a mess to say the least. These high-end audio processors were released by Creative Labs about four years ago and there still isn't pleasant support for the X-Fi series on Linux...

    So was there positive communication between the developers and Creative? If not, then there still isn't any reason to care about their products.

    Edit: Well it seems Creative did in fact! Now how long will this last, and should one buy a Creative sound card?

    For me it's moot, since I have and require the card to be functional in
    both Windows & Unbuntu. Quite simply put - no sound - NO UNBUNTU.

    How do you install this in Ubuntu 9.04 ?? Is there a PPA available or do you have to compile stuff to get this to work ??

    That's something I'd like to know as well but OSS is fine for now.

    ZOMG so Creative finally responded to the alsa devs . The v1.00 alsa driver from Creative has been working well for me, so did the sbxfi that was removed from kernel and now it will remerged as snd-ctxfi. Let's see if snd-ctxfi works with Auzen X-Fi cards.

    Hmm. Any differences between this and the OSS4 one? I'm avoiding ALSA like the plague.

    Would have been excited if I still had the card.
