I have a creative SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio, And i faced so many problems with this card regarding compatibility with Linux.

Now i am looking for a new audio card and want to make sure that this time it will be compatible with linux.

If you don't know a websites that has a list of supported Linux audio cards just tell me what audio card you are using on Linux.

Thanks for help!

Maybe hardware compatibility in linuxcompatible.org can help you http://www.linuxcompatible.org/compatdb/lists/hardware_linux.html

Maybe this can help too http://www.linux-sound.org/drivers.html

Here is another list http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Hardware-HOWTO/sound.html

You could also take a look here at the ALSA project wiki's list of supported sound cards. (Here's the site search).

You can find a list of certified audio cards in the component certification catalog.
