KMix Launch Crash (signal 8) No Audio

Hey Everyone,
I'm having a heck of a time getting my audio back after enjoying smooth, configure free operation for months.

I have a very basic SB card and an advanced EMU Audio Production Studio card. I was running successfully with the SB card until KMix started to crash after installing XMMS. This is a hard crash that comes up when launching Kmix. It gives a signal 8 with no backtrace info.

Here's the kicker-- I wiped out my harddrive and started over with Mandrake 10.0 (KDE 3.2) only to have the same exact problem still persisting. I've installed Mandrake twice before with no sound/Kmix problems. I'm completely confused - - and from what I've been able to find on Google-- my problem seems rather unique.

I installed Alsa - - ran alsaconfig with success - - but still no sound. How can I give Kmix the boot and use something else?
Is there some syntax I need to add or modify in a .config file somewhere?

Appreciate the help,

Can you use the program 'alsamixer' to set your volume?
If that failed also, maybe you need to check that you have all necessary modules loaded, and device files in /dev/ created (if you are not using udev)
