[sarge/kernel-2.4.26-1-686.  I am in the "audio" group.]

I'm going to jump in here since I, too, can't get ALSA to work
correctly with my board (SB Live!).  The first two steps above are OK.
[BTW, all works fine under a non-ALSA RH9.]

When I run 'alsaconf', it shows,

  emu10k1 Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 0a)

in the dialog which I select and configure.  My radio/TV card does
*not* show up.

When I run 'alsamixer', it *only* shows my "Brooktree Bt878" card
(radio, TV).  The "Bt878" mixer controls do nothing.  More importantly,
I can't get what I'd call the "general mixer controls" to show up
(e.g., Master, PCM, etc).  'Kmix' seg faults!

I tried "alsamixer -c 1", and it returned:

  alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for hw:1: No such device

Here are some relevant installed modules:

  snd-bt87x               5704   0
  snd-pcm-oss            39464   0  (unused)
  snd-mixer-oss          13848   0  [snd-pcm-oss]
  snd-pcm                61124   0  [snd-bt87x snd-pcm-oss]
  snd-timer              14532   0  [snd-pcm]
  snd-page-alloc          6392   0  [snd-bt87x snd-pcm]
  snd                    33508   0  [snd-bt87x snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss
  snd-pcm snd-timer]
  soundcore               3940   8  [bttv snd emu10k1 sound]

Thanks for any help!
