Hey all, im having problems with my sound card, its a Sound Blaster X-FI (not the old audigy one, but the new one, however i dont know exactly what model because SB have such a bad naming scheme)


osstest
gives:


/dev/oss/oss_sbxfi0/pcm0 (audio engine 0): Sound Blaster X-Fi (UAA) output
Note! Device is in use (by PID 7191/esd) but will try anyway
- Performing audio playback test... /dev/oss/oss_sbxfi0/pcm0: Device or resource busy
The device is busy. There is some other application
using it.
Can't open the device



so i ran:

killall esd
then:

osstest
and got:

/dev/oss/oss_sbxfi0/pcm0 (audio engine 0): Sound Blaster X-Fi (UAA) output
- Performing audio playback test...
<left> Device returned error: Input/output error

so my sound card is recognized however i don't know what to do about io error...

thanks for any help in advance
