How to get Soundblaster X-Fi soundcard to work in Mint 7?

Postby MissouriKnight on Wed May 27, 2009 9:15 pm

I installed Gloria tonight (5/28), but cannot get any sound out of my Fataility X-Fi card. I can only get sound from on-board audio.

Ideas?

X-FI doesn't really have any support at this time....I heard it will work partially through oss....but I believe the x-fi supoort will be in the next alsa. I have one also, been using an old tulip card awaiting my x-fi to work. I would think this will be resolved in mint 8...this is mainly a soundblaster issue, they dropped the ball getting this working, it took a couple years for it to work in Vista for that matter.
