Not Solved RE: Use hardware sound option

There is no hardware support ON linux (nor Mac) this is an issue with the available Open AL libraries.. At one point there was some hardware support on the SoundBlaster Live cards on the OLDER creative Open AL library but that has long since worked...

So, unfortunately no "hardware" and no EFX effects for the time being until the libraries catch up, or audio hardware vendors provide their own "accelerated" OpenAL library implementations.

Developing away on one of
Mac Pro Dual 2Ghz, 14GB RAM, 10.6 (still), nVidia 8800 512MB.
Linux, 8-core AMD, 8GB RAM, Fedora 17, nVidia 450 1GB
