Your profile suggests that you are using a RedHat distribution. Can you confirm this and give details of the version and the kernel version? An older version may have problems supporting your hardware.

I am not familiar with RHEL 6, but maybe you need to update your alsa package, so that the kernel module options will work. http://www.gossamer-threads.com/list...ms/devel/15343

From what I can see, the alsa package available at the link in post #7 in the previous link I gave should work for you.
