how do you configure em8300 and aureal vortex in modules.conf?
 
I cannot seem to get both of them to work at the same time. If I enable aureal drivers in modules.conf, the em8300 only works with analog output. The digital output is not working. If I enable only em8300, then the rest of my system does not have sound but I have audio and digital output via the hollywood plus card.

my modules.conf: (both em8300 and aureal enabled - allows analog output of oss, allows use of aureal arts server and hence sound for the rest of the KDE apps)

probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci

alias /dev/nvidia* NVdriver

post-install em8300 /usr/local/share/em8300/microcode_upload.pl /usr/share/misc/em8300.uc


modules.conf : em8300 only ( audio and digital output available from the hollywood plus but since aureal is not loaded, I have no sound for the other multimedia apps)


probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci
alias eth0 natsemi

pre-install em8300 modprobe adv717x

options em8300 dicom_fix=1 dicom_control=1
alias /dev/nvidia* NVdriver


I am not sure what the sound-service entry do. I got it off the internet on http://www.amalthea.de/xine/


Thanks for any help you can give.

Never Mind. I figured it out. the modules.conf I am currently using is correct. I just had to tell xine to use /dev/dsp1 instead of /dev/dsp. Apparently, /dev/dsp is aureal while /dev/dsp1 is em8300.
