Which version of ALSA is this using?

cat /proc/asound/version
Has it correctly identified the sound card?
cat /proc/asound/cards

I don't think that anything has changed in the driver between 2.6.20 and
2.6.21 that would affect this. That PCMCIA card can rather easily hang
the machine due to it's design, but removing the PCMCIA card during the
hang should release the hang state and the PC should continue. There was
one case where it would continue to hang, but I believe I fixed that.

Please tell me the output of the above two cat commands, and I will then
have a better idea of what the problem is.

Kind Regards
