Soundcard detected twice in ALSA


Hi.

Due to hardware failure I just had to swap motherboards in my FC5 box. Luckily I got my hands on a similarly spec'ed board and after swapping and sorting out the bios everything seemed to work perfectly. (I don't know whether I should have expected this to happen, but I'm not complaining.)

However, I've just discovered that the sound does not work anymore. The ALSA Wiki recommends using 'alsaconf' to re-configure but RedHat have decided not to package it in alsa-utils because they have 'system-config-soundcard'. The RedHat configurator is not so much that as a 'Does your card work or not? If not, I'll spit out a log file'.

The only irregularity I can spot is that there are two identical devices listed for testing in 'system-config-soundcard' and two identical devices listed in the output of 'aplay -l'.

Any ideas? See below for the scsound.log output of the RedHat prog.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Should I try re-installing ALSA? Do I have to remove a kernel module to achieve this?
