well, no personal experience from using that sound card, but yamaha is a good brand and i personally trust them...

but it should be compatible by linux using the OPL3SAx drivers for it in linux. i did a search on google with tons of links came up for that card, alot dealing with linux related topics..

Cool

jamaso,

I've got a opl3sa2 yamaha soundcard on my slack8. It works fine. The only thing I've done to activate it was adding a line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules:

echo "/sbin/modprobe opl3sa2" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

without specifying any I/O, DMA etc. But if you do additional fine-tuning let me know!

el felipe
