I have just bought an external sound card: Asus Xonar U7

I typed in terminal:


Then I wanted to change the sound card (I have connected an external sound
card via USB).

I pressed F6, selected the external sound card and pressed enter.

alsamixer crashed and outputed:

    cannot load mixer controls: Broken pipe

My ALSA information is located at

Please see this bug reported in alsa-driver package:

Tell me what other information you need.

Can you fix this bug in 7 days? If you cannot I will return the sound card

Thank you! Good luck!

I wait for your answer,
