That was to check if the card is still able at all to function properly,
right? In that case: I booted with a Knoppix CD I found somewhere, and
I got sound just fine...
Good news, I guess... Still, alsaconf does not detect the thing,
although I've used it a thousand times before to do so. Something must
be wrong with my configuration, but in the pile of alsa configuration
files that are spread around the system, I really can't find my way
If perhaps nobody else could point me in the right direction, I guess
I'd better bother alsa-user with it, instead of this list...
Thanks for the help in any case,
