    I also have a SB Live!, and it doesn't work with ALSA at all - the AC97
    codec doesn't load. I haven't taken the time to track it down as it does
    work just fine with OSS (under SMP at that).

    That's a purely firmware thing with this card; you should just have to
    load the right patches. I don't know whether there is a loader utility
    for alsa, though. Perhaps the old utils will work?

    Anyway, even if it's not working for me at the moment, it's still the
    superior architecture; just wait until the bugs affecting your specific
    situation are ironed out and userland utilities are available...
