sound cards / Indian Debian developers.

Hello all,

Shirish's message reminded me of the existence of this list. So... two things.

First, I just rebuilt my computer with a new motherboard (the old one recently died). However, the onboard sound card is a Realtek piece of crap. I've been having a terrible time trying to find a sound card that works well with Linux (specifically Alsa, I guess) and that is available in India. For some reason, there is a ridiculous scarcity of sound cards in India.

I found a couple of places in India that sell the Sound Blaster Live! 5.1. This is an ancient card, but apparently works well with Linux, and would be an improvement on my Realtek piece of junk. I wrote to ask them the exact model, to make sure they actually had the right card, but neither of them have replied so far. Does anyone have any ideas about a suitable sound card available in India, or knows where one could get a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 or similar?

Second, is anyone keeping a list of Indian Debian developers along with contact information, and if so, could you share it? Thanks. I know I can get something from people.debian.org, which currently gives 9 names for India, but it may not be up to date.

                                                          Regards, Faheem
