Sound Cards

Hi Karl

I have a live card but I am sorry to say, that it is not fully supported under Linux yet!
The driver is in a beta state (0.3b), and is not very stable. Version 0.3b was released a few days ago, and I have not tried it yet with PD. The other versions did not work (dacs died) and there was no MIDI support (yet).

Creative has a newsgroup on the subject: / creative.linux

There also seems to be problems with SMP but you can read on in the NG.

So.. I don't recommend the card (yet). But it might be a nice card when the drivers get better.. with full duplex and all.
