Same here, with the latest alsa (0.9+0beta10-5), the fun (or
frustrating) thing is with the same audio card but with another peecee
the card works. It's the crappy integrated VIA686: in a box with an
Athlon the mixer isn't found, in a box with a PIII the card works, the
two boxes are the same about package installed (updated sid). The only
way to have sound with the Athlon is to use an'older release...
Only to say that you are not alone =)
