Hi all,

I recently install the DeMuDi distrib, and i've just bought a Creative SB Audigy
SE card but I can't make it work! :(
I got this message from alsaconf:
demudi:/home/guest# alsaconf
Unloading ALSA sound driver modules: snd-ca0106 snd-ac97-codec snd-pcm-oss
snd-mixer-oss snd-pcm snd-page-alloc snd-seq-dummy snd-seq-oss snd-seq-midi

Setting up ALSA.../etc/init.d/alsa: Warning: 'alsactl restore' failed with error
message 'alsactl: load_state:1267: No soundcards found...'. done.
Setting default volumes...

and dmesg give me:
PCI: Found IRQ 9 for device 0000:00:0b.0
Model 100a Rev 00000000 Serial 100a1102
AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET
AC'97 0 access is not valid [0x0], removing mixer.
CA0106: probe of 0000:00:0b.0 failed with error -5

alsaconf recognize the card as a "ca0106 Creative Labs SB Audigy LS", but not as
a SE, so I guess if my problem comes from that.

I got Alsa 1.0.8-7, by searching the web i found a patch that "Added
identification for the Audigy ES.", but i don't know if it was applied on my
Alsa package, and i don't know if this kind of patch can resolv my problem.

Does anyone have any point out?
