Ok I have:
soundblaster x-fi Fatality
Ubuntu 8.04
nvidia 680i mobo

How do i make the soundcard work with Ubuntu? I'm really new to the whole linux experience, and Soundblaster has a new driver for it but i have no idea how to install it?

Thanks for any help.

You might want to PM "that Linux guy" as he has a creative card running under Linux i believe.

What aren't you understanding? The readme seems pretty straight forward

1) Goto source directory

2) Execute make command as root

make

make install

Since you're using ubuntu the commands you'll want to use are

sudo make

sudo make install

Oh.

The source directory is what you just extracted from the tarball. Looking at the file, you probably have a folder somewhere called XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00

The folder does contain source code..thus the term.

Changing directories is exactly how you'd expect it through a terminal window. Not much difference between here and Windows.
