OpenSuse does support Creative sound cards - have a look at for information on which cards and which features are supported. Do you have a Creative card that you can't get running? If so, can you tell us what you did and what errors you got?

gilead i didnt do anything to the sound card.. it said it didnt work. i looked the card up online and people were saying that it wasnt able to run with linux. I looked up that website saw that audigy 2 was compatible so im thinking i would like to get this card.
Pretty sure it will work could you tell me otherwise if it doesn't? ty =)
