Description of problem:
When using a SB Live! sound card, alsamixer says the card is not present or otherwise could not open device. If ATrpms are enabled and alsa-lib is updated to 1.0.8 from ATrpms, alsamixer magically sees the card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: alsamixer [device does not exist]
2. Run: yum --enablerepo=atrpms update alsa-lib
3. Run: alsamixer [device exists]
Actual Results: The alsamixer opened the SB Live! device and music was able to be played.
Expected Results: Not sure, but alsa-lib from ATrpms fixes it.
