Creative SB X-Fi soundcard is "unknown device"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem: Detects soundcard (Creative SB X-Fi) as
Vendor:Creative, Model:Labs unknown device 0005, then prompts to file a bug
report. No sound under Fedora Core 5, works fine under WinXP-Pro SP2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 27 Feb 06
How reproducible: Rerun "Soundcard Detection"
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "Soundcard Detection"
2. See "...unknown device..." in Audio Devices window.
3. Confirm no sound with ">" button in Audio Devices window.
Actual results: No sound. Triggering test sound with ">" button does not cause
sound card to wake up my speakers (status LEDs should go from dim to bright when
speakers receive an input from card). Audio/sound works fine in WinXP.
