I've been unable get alsa working under SuSE 7.3 and was wondering if anyone else had a problem (or success) with this combination.

I'm using alsa-0.5.11-55 (which is what SuSE distributes in 7.3) with a SoundBlaster PCI128 (Ensoniq 1371).

alsaconf correctly identifies the card and does not generate any error messages, but it's sound test does not generate any sound, nor does any other app.  (I also tried configuring with yast2; same result);

I did use amixer to set the levels, so that's not the problem.

I'm stumped; any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
