Another Sounblaster question


I've looked through a lot of the soundblaster questions on this forum, and have tried lot's of different things to get my Soundblaster Live! 24-bit soundcard working on Gentoo. Just some general info that I have gathered:

bash-2.05b# lsmod
Module Size Used by
snd_emu10k1_synth 8640 0
snd_emu10k1 107652 1 snd_emu10k1_synth

bash-2.05b#


Ouput from lspci -v (Obivously just the soundcard part of it):

02:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy LS
Subsystem: Creative Labs SB0410 SBLive! 24-bit
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 5
I/O ports at 9000 [size=32]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2

Someone has told me that they think it is hardware conflicting with each other, (They said that they think this because of the line "I/O ports at 9000 [size=32]". I have tried taking out my old modem. That didn't work, and I need my network card and my graphics card, so I am not taking those out. Also, I have tried switching to sound card around to different slots. The kernel is definitely configured right, I have soundcard enabled, alsa enabled, all OSS Mixer API, Sequencer Support, OSS PCM API, and the OSS Sequencer API. All enabled, I have alsa included support for my souncard(the emu10k1 drivers), I have made sure that they are all compiled as modules, not built-in.

When I run dmesg I notice a lot of this:

That could be a problem, I read something about turning on IRQ's in the BIOS, which I will try after I post this. I have also made sure that all the alsa modules and everything are loaded. I get this when I do 'cat /proc/asound/cards':

bash-2.05b# cat /proc/asound/cards
--- no soundcards ---
bash-2.05b#

I swear that I have tried EVERYTHING that I can do. Is there anyone who knows of something I may be doing wrong or could try next. Thank you so much for your help.

Well...I don't think that it is hardware conflicting. But it may be the IRQ thing. I still haven't checked the BIOS. Any suggestions?
