Aureal 3D Update

June 29th, 1999 by Crusader

eh wrote the folks at Aureal to determine the status of Linux drivers for their Vortex 3D sound card chipsets. They responded with:

4Front Technologies are working on drivers for the Vortex 1 and 2 chipsetsunder Linux through their OpenSound package. We are also working with othergroups on supplying more open-source Linux drivers, which we hopefully willmore formally announce[sic] soon.

There are no definite plans or release dates scheduled for these drivers,however, and there are no guarantees.

4Front Technologies’ Vortex README gives a target date of sometime during summer of this year for stable Vortex 1 chipset drivers, and no ETA at all for the Vortex 2 :/.
