Description of problem:
My Creative SoundBlaster Live tends to conflict with my Onboard VIA Soundcard, though the onboard device is off in bios, Fedora still loads it and want to use us. Fine with me as long as the Creative card still works,

This however is not the case, when I want to set the default device to the Creative SB Live! Emu10k1, I can't pick a PCM device so I won't have any sound.

Modprobing the snd-emu10k1 modules works fine, but I really can tell what i'm doing wrong here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 X64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Booting up.

Actual Results:

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2006-10-05 05:48:27 EDT
Do you have this SB in an ISA slot? Modules for ISA cards aren't loaded in FC5
during boot (don't ask me why).
Comment 3 Frans G 2006-10-05 05:53:45 EDT
No it's a PCI card!
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2006-10-13 11:02:24 EDT
please attach /root/scsound.log (if it doesn't exist, run
system-config-soundcard and it'll create it)

Comment 6 Frans G 2006-10-17 13:42:19 EDT
It looked fixed, i saw 3 PCM devices and the sounds worked fine. Booted today,
all gone ;x
Comment 7 Martin Stransky 2006-10-23 07:04:59 EDT
Hm, it's quite strange. Could you attach an output of dmesg?

Can you attach /etc/modprobe.conf?

btw. the problem may be here:

EMU10K1_Audigy: probe of 0000:00:0e.0 failed with error -12
