ALSA: PCM simple contol is missing on my soundcard!


Hi,

I had finally got my soundcard going, and i noticed that while it workes with KDE sounds, it refused to work with mplayer, xine, and crashes realplayer!
Upon some investigation I found out that PCM simple contol is missing from amixer... HOW that is possible is beyond me, but it is missing none the less =\
Code:
yatahaze / # lspci | grep audio
0000:05:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy L
Proper driver compiled into kernel

Code:
yatahaze / # amixer
