    Surround Sound audio


    My motherboard has onboard suround sound audio (5.1), but it doesn't seem to work under linux. It's an ASUS A7v8x-x and the audio codec is ADI 1980 6-Channel.

    Output (as close as I can get it) is 2.1 with the center speaker working only because of the "Matrix" button that merges the two speakers together. I've been dealing with this for a year and a half now and frankly I'm getting sick of having 5 speakers and technically having only 2 working as they should.

    Is there a driver that supports onboard surround sound in linux? I'd really like to find it and use it...


    Specs:
    AMD 2700+
    512MB RAM
    Mandrake 10.1
    Kernel 2.6

    The Speakers are Logitech 5.1 Surround Sound
