    I'm not sure if *ubuntu supports the Riptide chipset natively, but you can find out if the module (aka driver) is loaded by running the following:
    Code:
    modprobe snd-riptide
    I was only able to find others using the same chipset who had old HP Pavillion systems. Is this the case with yours also?

    If I was in your shoes though, I'd just buy a $5 Turtle Beach Riviera or something since such a card will be much better, not to mention supported "out of the box", in Linux.

    Make sure that mp3 codecs are installed as well. I'm not sure of the specific packages, but search for "mad" in synaptic/adept and get packages like libmad etc.

    The module is not installed, having the media codecs will do exactly zero good at this point. :(
