Long time no post.
Anyway, I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi card in my machine and after poking around in various places on the internets, I have come to the conclusion that this sound card is kind of a no-go with Linux.
By kind of, I mean there is in actual recent driver out there from Creative Labs (Beta - grrrr.)
However, this doesn't really do me much good if all I want to do...so far is play around with some live CD Distros.
Now to my question(s)
1. Is it possible to download this driver from Creative and somehow load it into mem or whatever with a live CD Distro so that I may sonically rock out? For now I only want to play around with the live CD. I don't want to technically install. Just load the driver into mem so I can get some audio.
2. If not, are there any distros that have the X-fi drivers incorporated into the live CD distro?
If I have not explained myself clearly, it's ok if you yell at me. I'll try to explain myself better.
Thank you for your time.
