then the question shouldn't be lined up on snd_emu10kx, I saw that this
type of soundcard utilize the CMedia CMI8738 chipset and there is
already a driver called snd_cmi.
The big, bad, ugly question is: will FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT support any of
the X-Fi soundcards from creative?
I feel sad watching the market in Germany. Since the Audigy 2-type SB
cards vanished there are only cheap ones, unsupported ones and expensive
ones, where I can not say whether the expensive ones are supported :-(
It is hard to figure out what chipset several creative soundcards utilize.
At the moment, I have onboard sound (which is boring) and Soundblaster
Audigy SE, which is NOT supported by FreeBSD 7 and OSS driver for amd64
crashes the box - so need alternatives.
Thanks in advance,
