Hello, I installed RH 9 a couple of days ago. It's a beauty! I have just one unresolved issue. My DELL Dimension 8250 contains an obscure SB live! 5.1 sound card. This card has a different chip set, for which there is no driver available. The EMU10K1 driver does not support it. There is one commercial driver for Linux that I know about. I even installed the limited demo version. This driver supports sound when playing games like TUX racer and Chromium. So far, I haven't been able to play music CD's nor MP3. I did check the AUMIX setting and mute; still no sound. When I run "cdparanoia" while piping the raw output directly to the DSP, I get a chain of little music parts. Sounds very bad, obviously. I have little hope finding a serious "free" sound driver in the near future for this card. So my question is: does anybody know about a serious driver being developed right now? This card works fine under WinXP, but I want to get rid of Windoze the sooner the better, obviously. BTW, I tried to get some specs about this sound card at DELL's and Creative Labs. Got no reply so far. Thank you for your kind attention.
