Yes.  I downloaded alsa-firmware 1.0.9, and ran 
"./configure --disable-loader", "make" and "make install".

Suggestions?  I have been using DeMuDi stable, as this one gives me the 
needed realtime setup (kernel and more) without any hassle.  How 
difficult is it to get this correct with another distro?

I did try the most recent live CD for Ubuntu Dapper Drake, but that one 
did not find my card out of the box either.
(And I have previously tried Planet CCRMA, without any luck.)
