    Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it (*cough, X-fi)...

    Actually, Creative did an amazing job with the drivers for CA0132 cards...on Windows. The only problem this time around is there is still no support for Linux.

    The last post had nothing to do with Windows drivers. I was referring to Creative's lacking/lagging X-fi support on Linux.

    Linux kernel 3.10-rc4 still doesn't support outputting sound.

    I have discovered a solution:

    Someone noted that the 32-bit kernel plays just fine, but that the 64-bit kernel needs a special fix in /etc/rc.local. Add the following before exit0:

    rmmod snd_hda_intel
    modprobe snd_hda_intel position_fix=1

    Reboot and it will work. Someone in the ALSA team simply needs to get this patch upstream. The sound is amazingly beautiful along with the pulseaudio equalizer. Much better than Windows.

    I just tried it with the 3.8 kernel on a fresh install and it doesnt seem to work. Installing 3.10 rc5 right now!

    It's been reported that this doesn't work with Sound Blaster Zs, but does work with Recon3Ds like I have. I'm using a low latency 3.8 kernel right now myself. Someone in the ALSA team seems to have finally took notice of things and all the 'ruckus' I started around places seems to be producing some results at the moment.

    well poop. i guess this thing is going back to best buy tomorrow. I just want surround sound to work with ubuntu. i shoud have researched more before buying but returning it shouldnt be that much of an issue.

    Boy, I wish this worked for me, but alas, no.

    Linux V-Studio-XPS-9100 3.2.0-49-generic #75-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 18 17:39:32 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Do I really need to roll my own Kernel?

    Creative's not a Linux-friendly company. You'll have better luck with Asus Xonar.
