in this directory and set KERNEL_SOURCE to the correct location of your
kernel source.

Is there a reason why you can't use the drivers SuSE installs by default?

I have 4 speakers

The drivers that install i cant figure out how to set them up to use four speakers and i know since i read the thing for their drivers and it said that it could and does support mirroring rear speakers and i would really like to be able to use that
