this posting of mine will not help you to solve your problem completely, but would shed some light onto whats happening..

there should be a file /etc/modules.conf in your system...i think the name sometimes varies with if you dont find it, try to locate a file with 'module' in its name..
in that file, check whether you have any entry for

'alias and_azx <module name>'

if yes, what is the <module name> ? this module name should be present in a file called modules.dep in the kernel sources directory. for that, do

locate modules.dep

if i am right, there would not be any entry for the module name in this file. refer to you driver readme files for knowing how to set these dependencies.

if no alias entry for your <module name> then, snd_azx by itself is not present in modules.dep.

if nothing works, try the alsa drivers..i got my card working with alsa...alsa drivers are available with

good luck !!
