    I have this same problem, except in english. I'm using opensuse 10.3 and uname -r says I have kernel 2.6.22.17-0.1
    I don't know if that is the kernel I'm using. I do know 2.6.22.17-0.1 is the version of my kernel source.

    My system:
    intel 945gpm
    intel D 830
    X-fi platinum

    This is a fresh install of opensuse 10.3. I just have the xwindow install with developmental package.

    I would love to get this working. Thanks in advance.

    In which directory are you trying to compile this? Do you have write permissions to this directory? IMHO you should be logged on as a regular user, and you should try to compile this in your home directory, in a directory such as /home/username/someapplication

    Can you also confirm you have gcc43 and gcc43++ installed.

    What drivers are you trying to install? alsa? oss?

    If alsa, why are you compiling, instead of using a packaged rpm:
    Alsa-update - openSUSE

    And finally, the x-fi does not have good support in Linux, as noted here:
    Creative X-FI - poor linux support
    where it basically states no linux support. ... however I have read there is a beta ( ? ) OSS driver that will work with this device.

    Hey this is the EXACT same problem I'm having with the exact same device, in fact I started a thread earlier today with the same issue.

    While I haven't yet tried to newest ALSA configs, I can confirm that the OSS drivers do function, although without any option for mixer or 5.1 surround

    Yes. The FIRST thing I'd do is get your distro upgraded!
    [Hint: RC1 is ancient history...11.0 has been finalized.]

    So, do:
    zypper ref && zypper dup
    and get upgraded and patched. THEN, try to solve your
    app problems.

    My 2-cents...

    Yes, I know. The download is currently running, but both mirror servers in Austria are very slow today ,so it could take some time...

    I'm now up-to-date and I tested it in my home/x-fi directory. The same errors appear. The gcc43 and gcc43++ are installed.
    The output I posted is from the closed-source beta driver installation!
    Where can I download the OSS driver?

    Unfortunately the Creative X-Fi driver is BADLY broken.

    I've been able to get it to compile vs 11.0 but unfortunately there are several issues - which ALL are due to the fact that the drivers are dismally coded. Getting them to compile on any newer distribution require changes in the C code itself, changing the module startup properties and some other fixes.

    I'll see if I can package them as an RPM (I'm pretty new at this RPM packaging thing so give me some time ) and put them up somewhere. No promises however.

    Ok, I have enough time to wait...
