No. I have SBLive 5.1 SB0100. This model doesn't work with 6 channels
under linux neither with native creative oss driver nor with  alsa-oss
emulation (I use 0.9.1 now). There is only way to produce 5.1 sound -
is to use "-ao alsa9:surround51".
But with medium throughput in ide, channels swapped and sometimes
appears strange-mixed (last happens rarely).
Only "-channels 6" give muted LFE&Center. "-channels 4" work fine.
