I have just upgraded to SuSE-6.4 Distro Linux on my AMD-K6 400MHz
system. What I would like to do is to add a soundcard on my Linux
system. Currently, I have a choice to get either the MagicSound 16-Bit
SoundCard or the SQ1500 Quad PCI SoundCard. I know the later uses the
Aureal 8810 Chipset and the Aureal only released the compiled Linux
driver as a module (I wished one day it will release the driver's
source). I had tried to install such a precompiled driver to my system
for a Digital Research ThunderSound to no avail under Linux-2.2.14. The
kernel kept complaining with version error messages.
Speaking about the Aureal driver for Linux, it currently only support
aureal 8810, 8820, and 8830 chipsets. The question is which chipset has
more power and features?
