My MB does have the gameport.

It turned out that the ALSA was wrong configured (as I mentioned in previous
mail). On both systems I use snd_intel8x0 and both kernels are in 2.6.17

And one more thing. Does anybody know if the snd_intel8x0 supports
8 channel sound (7.1)? My card has 8 output channels but I haven't
any occasion to check if all of them are supported by the driver.
I have doubts because in a mixer program that I use (kmix) in
"channel mode" combobox there are only three positions: "2ch", "4ch" and
"6ch". I am sure that my card has 8 channels - there 4 audio output jacks
and 2 audio input jacks. Besides it is well documented in the MB's manual.
