[linux-audio-user] Debian 2.6.14 alsa problems

I'm having exactly the same problem with my emu10k1 (SBLive 5.1)
sound card. All the MIDI programs I try seem to _think_ they're
working... but still no sound! (Other audio works fine, though.) I
have used the SuSE and Fedora distros, but same thing.
Any other ideas?
