Hi Everybody;

I have installed ubuntu 10.10 (fresh installation) from ubuntu dvd tonight.

My soundcard is Sound Blaster 5.1 VX
(http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=1&subCatID=207&prodID=17510&prodName=Sound%20Blaster%205.1%20VX&subCatName=Others&CatName=Sound+Blaster&VARSET=prodfaq:PRODFAQ_17510,VARSET=CategoryID:1)
in the past (in ubuntu 10.04) i can get a sound from this soundcard but i
cant get sound in kubuntu 10.04 but now, i cant get sound from this card in
ubuntu 10.10.

Ubuntu meet it as SoundBlaster CA106 and when i click test the right side of
the soundcard in sound properties page i see a new page that 5+1 speakers
(because i use this card with creative inspire 5200 5+1 speaker system and i
choose 5.1 analog input + 1 analog output option in ubuntu) and when i see
"test" button on each seperated button on the different speakrs i heard only
noise like a radio that cant find any channel (only noise)...

On the other hand, i heard same noise in system sounds too (while system
startup or shutdown, closing firefox or etc) i go to console and i input
alsamixer prompt then i choose f6 (because there is another onboard
soundcard on my mainboard [Asrock P4i65G] but it is disabled from the bios)
but my creative soundcard looks like choosen...

My lspci outout below, please anybody help me for getting 5+1 sound from
this card in ubuntu 10.10...

Thanks a lot...
