Hello there!

I'm running ubuntu and it works great. I also use a Sound Blaster Live!
(yes, there is a exclamation-mark in the name...) and that works like a
charm. never had any problems with it. If you're on a laptop, I'm not at
all surprised that you have problem with your sound-card. They are shit.
all of them. I would recommend that you search the Linux Audio
Users-archive at http://lalists.stanford.edu/ . If you want to go
hardcore, you might want to look at external USB/Firewire-soundcards.

I'm using alsa, but I'll probably change to jack when I get my realtime
kernel setted up (read, not in the close future). It depends on what you
want to do with chuck. Have something very reliable? Alsa. Plugging
chuck into other audio apps? Jack.

Hope that helps,
