I recently installed the Creative Labs Drivers for my SoundBlaster
Live Card under Red Hat Linux 6.0. The main reason I want sound support
under Linux is to playback my MP3 library. I am using the latest
version of XMMS, and am getting some brutal skipping / chattering
whenever there is minor HDD access. I've increased the buffer on XMMS
to no avail. After sending feedback to the XMSS development team they
basically said 'Creative can't make drviers'.
I was wondering if anyone has installed the SBlive card NOT using
the SoundBlaster drivers provided by Creative. If so, could you outline
the steps you took (I'm not a novice, and not quite a power user, just
average for now).
Thanks in advance!
