> What card ???
Aztech Sound Galaxy
alsaconf should have listed the sgalaxy driver as one of the
options, but instead listed only sb16, sb8, and a few others that I do not recall. Although the card does emulate a Sound Blaster, and produces sound using ALSA and the sb8 driver, it is not a reliable configuration. For example, changing the volume in xmms, while playing an MP3, causes Linux to freeze; a power-cycle is required to recover.
