I think what he means by finding two is
1) His actual sound card
2) the legacy one (Probe legasy ISA non pnp chips).

metalcafe, it seems you have a Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI sound card. I'm assuming alsaconf detected and installed its drivers for you.

Afterwards, you should run alsamixer, and unmute the master sounds, press escape, and then alsactl store to store the settings.

This should do the trick. Now as for kde, make sure you choose the ALSA in the sound settings. Currently by default Alsa can only play 1 stream at a time. Meening you can't run an mp3 player, and a video player at the same time and get both sounds. Similarely, you can have system sounds (beeps, bells, etc) but xmms and mplayer won't work. So either disable the system notification sounds, or add a .asoundrc file, which is discussed in this forum
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...43#post1562043

in short, create a file called .asoundrc in your home folder and stick all that mumbo jumbo code in it.

Hope this helps.
