I did some research on this bug. Alsa's web site suggested recent changes to the
libraries would make the ca0106 cards work. I grabbed the alsa driver,library
and kernel from Fedora 8 repo. Upon reboot and running system-config-sound sound
was functional with the Audigy SE card on Fedora 7. The latest alsa driver fixed
the problem.

Your card looks occupied by another application....

Anyway, alsa-drivers should be the same in f7 and f8. So do the f8 packages work
for you and the f7 ones don't?

this is the second log generated by alsa sound test!
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2008-03-04 07:15:24 EST
Which version of ALSA works for you? The current fedora version is 1.0.15, the
latest is 1.0.16.

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested, 
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.

Note that maintenance for Fedora 7 will end 30 days after the GA of Fedora 9.
