Ok, perhaps I've been a bit sparse on informations.

Kernel: 2.6.15-1-486
Distro: Etch
Soundcard: Sound Blaster Audigy SE
chipset: CA0106

I'm using the alsa-driver from Debian, and I have installed alsa-base
and alsa-utils and alsa-libs

I think I would make it a module, perhaps because compiling it into the
kernel seems to be to difficult for me, but ...

no, I will do so, and reboot.
