>> Anyway, I cannot seem to get my Turtle Beach Montego souncard (the OEM version from Dell) to work so far. I did get linux drivers for it from
> linux.aureal.com but unfortunately every time I try to install them it terminates with an error message and tells me the device is busy.
Had the same problems about a month ago. Okay, scanning thru the readme it tells you that you must do 'make install20' for that particular chipset. However I didn't read it properly, and just did 'make install'. Anytime after that that I tried make install20, it gave me that exact error message. After much trying to get the system back the way it was before I ran install, my machine die and I reinstalled redhat. I ran make with the proper parameters and it picked the card up perfectly.
I presume you made the same mistake I did. How to get things back from before I don't know, though I am almost sure it has something to do with modules.conf. Just try make install20 and see what happens. If it doesnt give any errors try something like 'cat /usr/share/sndconfig/sample.au > /dev/audio' to test it.
Hope thats of some use to you, let me know how you got on.
