Hello. I just notice that my card stops working. I have a Sound Blaster
I have tested the next way so I think that the card is still correctly
installed, so I guess the problem is somewhere I don't know.
rolodoom@rolinux:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
*0 [Live * * * * * ]: EMU10K1 - SB Live [Unknown]
* * * * * * * * * * *SB Live [Unknown] (rev.10, serial:0x80671102) at
0x1000, irq 21
Then I tested with the next command and actually get sound, but only
from console, when I open totem, audacity, etc, there is no sound. Jack
also stops working.
rolodoom@rolinux:~$ speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6 -twav
Playback device is plug:surround51
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 6 channels

Buffer size range from 64 to 16384
Period size range from 16 to 16384
Using max buffer size 16384

Where is the problem??
That is not a high priority IRQ.* However, the problem is probably that you have not set the indices in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
The pattern on this list of people complaining about device switching tends to come from an incorrectly configured alsa-base.* You need to make the SB the default index 0 card on the system and then set some defaults in System/Preferences/Sound.* If other devices contend, then you need to hardcode their index or make sure they never connect.
Hope this helps though you have probably done this,
