    SubjectRe: ALSA vs. OSS
    Me too.  I cannot get ALSA working on my SB Live.

    If I may be so bold as to make a suggestion: Maybe the developer in
    charge of ALSA's e-mu driver could work with us poor unfortunates.
    There may be some commonality between our systems that causes this
    (besides the sound blaster live).

    My system:
    Sound: SBLive Value
    Redhat 7.3 (w/ piecemeal recompiles & upgrades)
    Kernel: 2.6.1
    CPU: Athlon XP 2100+
    Mobo: ASUS (I think it's A7V333. I can confirm this later.)
