    Nice. So does this mean my next rig can safely get itself a sound card from creative ?

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

    Any chance this driver will work with the latest expresscard one (not the XtremeAudio) - the black one with the wireless capability.

    EDIT: ExpressCard devices are treated as USB? Well, anyway, it shows up in lsusb as "Bus 003 Device 002: ID 041e:30d2 Creative Technology, Ltd"

    The slots have a few pins attached to the USB bus, which is why it shows up there.

    So it's not completely a USB device though? It doesn't show up in lspci at all.

    There's technically nothing stopping it from being USB-only, but using an entire card slot for a USB device seems pretty wasteful...

    Long shot, but have you tried just using the USB-audio driver?

    Just did, but I think I may have screwed it up. Anyway, when I look in dmesg it seems to be recognized as an input device for some reason...thinks it's a keyboard.

    I think on-mobo sound cards have pretty much taken over. Comparing the sound quality of different sound chipsets would be interesting though.
