USB Audio and Linux
Does anybody out there have experience with USB audio devices under Linux?
Here's the reason I ask:
Back when I ran my computer under Windows 98SE, I used a Creative SoundBlaster MP3+ USB audio device for my music playback. When I switched to Linux, (currently Mandriva PowerPack 2006) I just assumed that the thing would not work, so never actually bothered to try it.
Today, on a whim I dug the thing out (blew the dust off it) and plugged it in...
Linux recognises the device. Mandriva Linux Control Centre lists it as 'USB sound devices/USB Audio' with this information:
Description: USB Audio
Media class: Audio|Control Device
Bus PCI #: 1
PCI device #: 3
Vendor ID: 1054
Device ID: 12304
Also, in addition, KMix lists the device as an available mixer, correctly identified as a Sound Blaster MP3+
But, there is no sound to be heard...
It would make my day if I could get the thing to work, so any thoughts or suggestions would be very appreciated.
