Still no update on any distro for soundcards. I complain about this alot and it is one of my main complaints, I have an Emu-0404 PCI and it just doesn't work with linux. ALSA keeps saying it is supported but it is not.
After many hours spend, my EMU 0404 work fine.
In order to make it work :
- install ubuntu 10.04 (mine is 64 bits)
- go to emu0404 - Documentation Ubuntu Francophone
(sorry, french doc) and copy/paste the first script in an executable file (chmod +x)
- launch the script, and when it asks the version of alsa you have, specify 1.0.23. It will install the latest version of alsa drivers, that seem to be ok with EMU 0404 (even if 1.0.15 is supposed to work fine with EMU0404). Rem: don't ask the script to apply the EMU patch.
After that and a reboot, your soundcard will be detected as :
> lspci | grep SB
Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value
> cat /proc/asound/modules
Hope this will help ...
