Hmm... there is really no visible problematic changes for emu10k1
between 2.6.25 and 2.6.26. I guess checking /proc/asound/cards and/or
kernel config would save the time of bisect. At least, check the
following:

1. you have emu10k1 in the first entry (#0) of /proc/asound/cards
2. the mixer states are OK (e.g. "Audigy Analog/Digital Output
Jack" switch is off, "Master" and "PCM" are muted/adjusted, etc)
3. run "aplay -Dhw:0 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/test.wav" for testing


thanks,

Takashi
