The ice1712 is the module for my Terratec Phase88/Envy24 Chipset soundcard
which I successfully use all the time with any other audiosoftware on my 
linux machine.

Hmm. Nothing available at the moment. It looks like they're working on a
openSuse 10.3 based JAD release but there is just a source available 
that could
still be unstable.

O.o .... now you said the three magic words that makes me get shivers 
down my spine.
I use the JAD kernel-rt-2.6.19-5.i586 Thats all I can say. 
Unfortunately, I haven't got any clue
about how to recompile/change/patch a kernel. :(
