Package: libasound2
Version: 1.0.11-4
Severity: important

I'm using a soundblaster live card (old one). The problems exist with
version 1.0.11-6, but I've reverted to 1.0.11-4 because that version
seems to be alright.

Running alsaconf, I get these messages:
ALSA lib control.c:816:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory

Running muine, I got this message:
ALSA lib pcm.c:2146:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default

Also, the gnome volume control didn't work, but I don't think I got a
descriptive message from that.
