    I get up to the step above... Is there a typo in the above? I have never seen hg as a command?
    Thanks,

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop
    sudo apt-get -y remove alsa-oss oss-compat alsa-base libesd-alsa0
    
    sudo apt-get -y install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential gawk libtool libgtk2.0-dev libesd0 wget linux-sound-base gcc-multilib libesd0-dev mercurial libssl0.9.8 libssl-dev
    cd /usr/src
    sudo hg clone http://mercurial.opensound.com/ oss-devel
    cd ~/
    mkdir oss41build
    cd oss41build/
    sudo sh /usr/src/oss-devel/configure
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    Completed all of the above and got "no mixers in the system"

    Tried to run ossxmix -

    Get back: No mixers are availble

    Is this better or worse?

    ossinfo still returns no audio devices...
    Version info: OSS 4.1 (b 080423/200805061338) (0x00040090)

    Please run:
    Code:
    sudo ossdetect -v
    What output does it give?

    radamo,
    Your HD audio should work now. If it does not, please make a thread on the OSS forum (I saw you made an account there).

    Will do... from the Sound applet I get the following if I press Test:

    audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect stream: Invalid argument

    @Temüjin

    I'm a linux noob like I'm sure a lot of us reading you post are and I'd just like to say THANKS A LOT ... I have been trying to get my X-Fi to work on Linux for probably over a year, waiting for new drivers from creative to come out, and trying stuff people have written about, trying and waiting. Following your guide, I was able to set up my X-Fi on Ubuntu 8.04 in minutes. I can't thank you enough.

    BTW, the only thing I don't have working is my media keyboard won't increase/decrease the sound and that sort of thing. You mention that here:

To remedy the issue, try Clive Wright's patch. I've also built and attached an AMD64 version to this post. Note that this patch was updated on 1/8/08, so if you tried it before then and it didn't work, try again.
    Also, if you'd prefer to map commands to your shortcut keys, here are some scripts to use (at the bottom of the page).
    It seems that http://www.4front-tech.com is down right now and I can't get Clive Wright's Patch. Can anyone point out a mirror for this? I would find it myself but I have no idea what the file name of the patch is...

    Awesome! If you'd like to thank me, please edit your post and remove the huge quote (I expect this thread to get rather long as it is)

    The forum works fine for me at the time of this post. Just to make sure, I've added the 32-bit version to the original post.
