I also use the ubuntu 904 64bit,and a similar hardware,
it works for me pretty well .now I can hear 5.1 sound just like the windows
have you intslled soundcard driver?
I use the following install stage
$sudo make modules install
and then restart(if not the old alsa code will make snd-ctxfi driver module
$sudo modprobe snd-ctxfi
and if it still not work please give some information about $dmesg
here's what lspci | grep audio says:
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio
03:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
cat /proc/asound/cards says:
0 [XFi ]: SB-XFi - Creative X-Fi
Creative X-Fi 20K1 Unknown
snd_ctxfi 102376 3
snd_pcm 99336 2 snd_ctxfi,snd_pcm_oss
snd 77256 15
