As most of you who use Linux and have an X-Fi are aware it does not work. You can make it work with OSS which requires removing ALSA (the primary sound system of many distros) Is there are good 5.1 sound cards that will be detected and work properly under ALSA? Any input is appreciated. Even if someone has found a more streamlined way of removing ALSA and installing OSS please let me know. At the moment I'm running Ubuntu 8.10.
