    I've tried: Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10, 13.04, 13.10; no luck
    Wrong...sort of. 64-bit Ubuntu is a bust. 32-bit Ubuntu 14.04 works, with some tinkering. First, you'll have to run alsamixer, hit F6 to change sound cards if necessary, then unmute main, PCM and surround and set the two volume levels to something sane. For some reason the card kept muting itself, but eventually started behaving. I'm using Kubuntu 14.04 32-bit, so I had to go to Phonon to disable all my other audio devices. You then get front panel audio ONLY. The headphone and analog 5.1 ports on the back get no output. Supposedly digital out works, but I don't have a digital receiver to test it on.

    The thing is...it sounds absolutely AMAZING. Much better than the same hardware under Windows (32-bit or 64-bit), and it sounds darned good under Windows. Makes it worth crawling along with 1990s 32-bit technology. Someone needs to kick the 64-bit driver into shape, pronto.
