I'm a complete linux newbie at the moment. I've been hunting for solutions to my soundcard troubles, but so far nothing seems to have resolved it.
In a nutshell, I have a 5.1 speaker set up, but the centre and subwoofer speakers are not producing any sound under linux.
My soundcard is a Creative SB X-Fi XtremeGamer.
I attempted to install the official creative driver, but received this error message:
[root@THEBEAST XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00]# make

Any help would be most appreciated!
I do apologise if this issue has been previously covered - I did a number of searches on the forum prior to posting, but didn't find anything.
