I updated my Audigy ZS drivers in windows XP (I dual boot
windows and gentoo), and when I went back into gentoo and
tried to load UT2004, I was getting an error starting the sound
library. When I tried to aplay a wav file, it just produces static.
I'm not 100% sure that it was the windows update that b0rked my
sound, but maybe they updated the card firmware or something?
I didn't change kernels or anything, so I don't know what else
could be wrong.
