hi, i tryed doing those things iv even blacklisted modules


heres my blacklist:

#
# Listing a module here prevents the hotplug scripts from loading it.
# Usually that'd be so that some other driver will bind it instead,
# no matter which driver happens to get probed first. Sometimes user
# mode tools can also control driver binding.
#
# Syntax: driver name alone (without any spaces) on a line. Other
# lines are ignored.

Why are you blacklisting the alsa modules? The only module to black list would be the actual sound driver for the hardware that you don't want. I think you want to stop the on-board intel driver and allow the ctxfi driver. So try unblacklisting those generic modules and just blacklist snd_hda_intel this way:
Quote:
blacklist snd_hda_intel
install snd_hda_intel /bin/true
The 2nd line with the install is the nuclear option, in some cases the system can overrule blacklisting. That fakes out the module loading of snd_hda_intel with /bin/true in its place.
Since /bin/true doesn't actually do anything except return a success code, then ctxfi can be loaded for your X-Fi and the proper alsa modules like snd_seq_oss snd_seq snd_seq_device
and so on will get loaded too.

alsa-info will help show some information about your hardware:
Quote:
alsa-info --no-upload --with-devices
and look in /tmp/alsa-info.txt to see the results
or just run
Quote:
alsa-info --help
if you want to see all the options

When you did the "make" and then "make install"
you did confirm that the ctxfi module got loaded right?

lsmod | grep ctxfi

should show a few lines that shows the module was loaded.

what it should look like is what's posted in this thread (post#1)
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1154830
in his section 2 of the first post.

Rebooting is a good idea after the make install finishes ok.

Right now it would be the "lsmod" output that would help (which you cut off... it's the
very last part)

Solved?

00:06.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
03:00.0 Audio device: Creative Labs [SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio] CA0110-IBG

I think that's the problem, you have an Xtreme Audio, there are many "X-Fi"
cards and that's not currently supported by the Linux open source driver.
Of the "Xtreme" ones, only the "Gamer" and the "Music" is supported.

see Reference link
http://support.creative.com/products...=sound+blaster
then click x-fi, then select your Xtreme Audio card, then "next",
unfortunately they don't put the open source driver where it's easy to see,
I had to type Linux in the search tool at that point. (their website full of obscure scripting so
I can't just give you the link)
The right place has the file called

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi and X-Fi Titanium Series Linux 32-bit / 64-bit Driver Source Release

hit the 'show details' button and it says:


Code:
File Name : XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00.tar.gz

This download is a source release driver providing Linux® 32-bit / 64-bit OS support for Creative Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ and X-Fi Titanium series of audio devices. For more details, read the rest of this web release note.

Take note of the following:

    * THIS IS AN UNSUPPORTED DRIVER. There is no technical support for this driver.
    * We recommend that only experienced users install this driver. Do not install this driver on a system used to perform critical tasks.

    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Professional Audio
    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium
    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro 
    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum
    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty
    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer
    * Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic

Current release features:

    * ALSA Record
    * ALSA Mixer

Known issues:

    * External I/O modules are not supported in this driver release.
    * Applications from the Installation CD of your Sound Blaster audio device will not work with this driver.

    * Creative Sound Blaster audio devices listed above

Notes:

    * To install the driver, do the following:
         1. Download the tarball package onto your local hard disk.
         2. Un-tarball the downloaded package to unpack its contents.
         3. Read the README file and follow the instructions.
UPDATE: the lack of "XtremeAudio" in the supported list might be a mistake by Creative, someone here
http://connect.creativelabs.com/open...20Support.aspx
says that the source code refers to it. (see text just below blue window)
