I installed Mint Elyssa KDE a few days ago and I'm pretty much up and running except for one thing. My dell sports a Creative Sound Blaster XFi card and apparently the driver is hard to install/use. I'm almost tempted to roll back into Windows because I need to hear my IMs. (That brings up another problem. Kopete doesn't work well when I'm logged into my account simultaneously from my Macbook, the only way I can catch IM notifications.) The only dirvers I've been able to find is the beta one offered by Creative and a link indicating OSS support is available via some download that I can't find on http://opensound.com. Is there a guide for installing/configuring OSS on Mint or Ububntu that I can follow? Has anyone else faced and resolved this issue? Thanx in advance!
