hi i got a x-fi xtreme music sound card. it has 5.1 surround sound but after trying many things including using alsa drivers, the drivers form creative and a few other things i cant seem to figure out how i did it in the past. i have so far tried the drivers from creative version 1, have used the latest alsa drivers. both work if i just want front channels but i would like to use atleast the bass speaker too but would perfer the full surround sound. i know its possible i jsut cant figure out how. i have also tried the latest version of 9.10 and it detects my card with full chanels. i have also followed pertty much all of the guides on this forum on getting it to work but none of them really say anything about all the channels working.

my system is as follow
ubuntu 9.04 64 bit
asus p5q motherbaord
intel q6600 cpu
4gb ram
nvidia 9800gt

heres what i get for lspci -v
