Default ALSA cannot find the slot for index 0


before I tried to install the proprietary ATI graphic driver all sound
cards were fine with both 64 Studio 2.1 and the upgrade to 64 Studio
Lenny (an upgrade for some needed packages).

Until I tried to install the driver I get this error:

spinymouse@64studio:~$ dmesg | grep alsa
ALSA /usr/src/modules/alsa-driver/acore/init.c:174: cannot find the slot
for index 0 (range 0-1), error: -16

More from dmesg:

ALSA /usr/src/modules/alsa-driver/acore/init.c:174: cannot find the slot
for index 0 (range 0-1), error: -16
ICE1712: probe of 0000:03:06.0 failed with error -12
usb 2-1: string descriptor 0 too short
usb 2-1: string descriptor 0 too short
usbcore: registered new interface driver snd-usb-audio

spinymouse@64studio:/usr/src/modules$ ls

There is only a folder fgrlx in /usr/src/modules, fgrlx has to do with
ATI graphics.

All sound devices are fine, but the TerraTec ICE1712. Qjackctl list the
sound devices like this:

hw:1,x [...]
hw:2 USB Device [...]

The hws should be incremented and hw:0 should be the TerraTec, like it
was before, when I used vesa. I'm back to vesa but the trouble is still
the same.

The repository for Lenny is disabled, I "reinstalled" the following 64
Studio 2.1/Etch packages:

Commit Log for Fri Jun 20 14:16:32 2008
Reinstalled the following packages:
alsa-firmware (1.0.15-1~etch1)
alsa-firmware-loaders (1.0.13-1)
alsa-modules-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64 (1.0.17~hg080328-1+2.6.21-2)
linux-image-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64 (2.6.21-2)

I can run alsaconf to get back my main sound card, TerraTec, but than I
will lose all other devices, this is a problem, because I need the
USB-MIDI-device. Normally sound cards will lose when running alsaconf
but not the USB-MIDI-device.

Alsa-base seems to be fine:

# autoloader aliases
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-0
install sound-slot-1 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-1
install sound-slot-2 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-2
install sound-slot-3 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-3
install sound-slot-4 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-4
install sound-slot-5 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-5

$CMDLINE_OPTS && /lib/alsa/modprobe-post-install snd-ice1724

# Fix indexes for the spymo DAW
alias snd-card-0 snd-ice1712
options snd-ice1712 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel index=1
alias snd-card-2 snd-usb-audio
options snd-usb-audio index=2

Any ideas?

If it's not because of the proprietary ATI driver, it seems to be one of
these obscure Linux errors caused by nothing.
