    Hey guys. I'm new with the use of Linux but I have something to ask..

    Is there anything that is needed, if the company only supplys windows base drivers, do I need if I have say a HT Omega Claro Halo card?

    Meaning: I'm wanting to use the ^ card in linux but don't know if it's going to work or not.


    Note* I'll know in a bit on what version of Linux since I'm not sure.

    need linux version (kernal version if you have it) and sound card model/version.

    alot of things work out of box with modern linux much like modern windows but wont have full functionality.

    Thanks for the help yogurt. I don't know my sound cards version, but it's a


    HT Omega Claro Halo XT... Which is really just a HT Omega Claro Halo card. Just that it has a extended board for the 7.1 sound rca jacks.

    It's what I would do. Then you know how much of an issue it really is.

    Basic sound usually works good but if you want to play around with settings etc it gets hairier and that I don't know what to do.

    I actually had the same problem. I would consider myself a seasoned Linux user and I couldn't figure it out. I haven't tried any kernel >=3.1, so perhaps they fixed something that I missed in that timeframe?

    Ubuntu 11.10 worked right out the box for the halo claro for me. So go ahead and do eet! For some reason it sounds better in linux then in windows for me.. Must be the drivers or some setting. More OMMPH!
