i know but that was the usual fault from the user side.

i don't know what it could be.

but i attached my alsa conf. (don't forget to disable the path line!)
perhaps it could work. i have als cs461x and i have also some conflicts
with alsa and pcmcia slot (especialy in coherence with suspend to ram).

ps: does ReiserFS works fine (without any problems)?
