I've got a Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty sound card (which I now regret buying) and I'm just trying to get some basic sound from a game working but having issues. Supposedly, this is something that should work.

Creative Lab's has released an ALSA driver and I was hoping someone could lend a hand w/ my config.

I've configured my kernel as stated here.
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml

Here's the error I'm getting trying to install the driver.
Code:

XFiDrv_Linux_US-1.18 # ./installer
Setup is unable to detect a supported product on your system
Setup will now exit


And here's my config.
Code:

# lspci -v | grep -i audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 631xESB/632xESB High Definition Audio Controller (rev 09)
03:00.0 Audio device: Creative Labs Unknown device 000b (rev 03)

# cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [Intel          ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
                      HDA Intel at 0xdfffc000 irq 16

# cat /proc/asound/version
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.14rc1 (Tue Jan 09 09:56:17 2007 UTC).

# cat /proc/asound/oss/sndstat
Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.14rc1 emulation code)
Kernel: Linux Storm 2.6.20-gentoo-r8 #4 SMP Tue Jul 22 09:28:43 UTC 2008 x86_64
Config options: 0

Installed drivers:
Type 10: ALSA emulation

Card config:
HDA Intel at 0xdfffc000 irq 16

Audio devices:
0: STAC92xx Analog (DUPLEX)

Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Timers:
7: system timer

Mixers:
0: SigmaTel STAC9200


I think the problem for my error msg above is that according to the ./installer, it's trying to run a line like "lspci -vnmd 1102:0005", and nothing is being returned, and my device isnt' being recognized.

Anyone know what I need to do to get the X-Fi card to show up?

Moved from Unsupported Software to Duplicate Threads, refer to the topic "Creative X-FI Soundblaster Drivers released v1.18 [HOWTO]", specifically the post which is duplicated in this topic.
