Creative x-fi alsa and oss drivers errors
Hello again.I have x-fi and skype.Because alsa doesn't support creative i use open sound system.The sound works perfect but skype crush every time when i try to open.But after a lot of tries and google search i got these erros:
symbol snd_mixer_selem_get_playback_dB, version ALSA_0.9 not defined in file libasound.so.2 with link time reference
When i try change the sound driver from control center>sound & multimedia>sound system
i got a windows with the following message:
The specified library arts could not be found
The diagnostics is
/usr/lib/libasound.so.2 underfined symbol:midiparser_input_buf
An error occured during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module
You have old third party modules lying around
Check these points carefully and try to remove the module mentioned in error message.if it fails, consider contactings your distributor or packager.
The creative has release for x-fi beta drivers so i want to try to install them but when i try i got

Sound Blaster X-Fi Linux 32/64-bit Beta Driver Readme File
The purpose of this document is to describe how the X-Fi Linux device
driver is built, packaged, and released.
1) You must have the fully configured source for the Linux kernel and
ALSA which you
want to use for this device driver. Partial installed
kernels (e.g. From distribution makers) may be unusable for this
2) Run one of the following commands as root in the terminal:
* ALSA Source Tree
On 2.6 kernels, the location of the ALSA source include directory
is parsed automatically from the running kernel.
If it is not in the standard place, specify the path via
On 2.4 kernels, the location of the ALSA source include directory
must be specified via --with-alsainc=<ALSA_include_directory>.
If integrated ALSA is to be used to build, --with-alsainc option
must not be specified.
In the terminal,
1) Change directory to /opt/Creative/XFiDrv_Linux_US-1.18
2) Run the following command as root
For GNOME users, You may need to close the Volume Control
applet before uninstalling. Right-click the Volume icon on the
GNOME panel and select "Remove From Panel"
3) Manually delete all files in /opt/Creative/XFiDrv_Linux_US-1.18
