PCI soundcard not detected (emu10k1, linux 2.6.9, slackware)


My PCI soundcard is not detected : it is not mentionned in the output of lspci. Also alsaconf can't find it.

I have had the alsaconf problem for monthes but curiously, it continued to work very fine (MP3 playback etc...) until recently, when I upgraded my system.

Here's more about my recent upgrade.

Slack-current from approx. july 2004
linux 2.6.7-ck6 (Con Kolivas patchset)
standard slackware ALSA packages

Slack-current from october 2004
all slackware ALSA packages removed
linux 2.6.9-cko2 (Con Kolivas Overloaded patchset), with alsa-driver and alsa-oss enabled as modules.
alsa-lib and alsa-utils compiled from source against this kernel.

1) I first tried to keep my slackware alsa packages but it didn't work (got weird, painful noise + very unstable system)

2) in my new kernel config, I have compiled _as modules_ everything about sound. So that I could use alsaconf -m. But that didn't change anything.

Here's the output of lspci :
00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8366/A/7 [Apollo KT266/A/333]
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8366/A/7 [Apollo KT266/A/333 AGP]
00:07.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
00:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: GemTek Technology Corporation PCI Radio (rev 01)
00:11.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233 PCI to ISA Bridge
00:11.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C/VT8235 PIPC Bus Master IDE(rev 06)
00:11.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6202 [USB 2.0 controller] (rev 1b)
00:11.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6202 [USB 2.0 controller] (rev 1b)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV20 [GeForce3 Ti 200] (rev a3)
The "Multimedia audio" entry is not a sound card, it's a PCI Radio FM tuner plugged into the Line Input. Of course, currently, I can't listen to it. Nor can I listen to Audio CDs.


AMD Athlon XP processor
MSI K7T266 Pro2 motherboard
SB Live! PCI soundcard (EMU10K1)

I hope you can help. This looks like a tough one!
