Sorry for the multiple posts, but once I rmmod snd-sbxfi, running mixer does fine. It seems if I have snd-sbxfi loaded and I run alsamixer, it locks the entire system.
So, do you mean loading the driver itself doesn't lock up? If so, it's better than I expected.
Did you run ever PCM playback/capture before that? This is more dangerous :)
Also, please give your hardware details, as there are different models for X-Fi, and some are handled pretty differently.

I think perhaps from uninstalling pulseaudio I got further. I can use mixer now, and it even has a "Master" device, but nothing else...
however, I do get a lock up later.
I get this from running aplay, too, if this helps...
Thanks! That's rather a stupid bug. The patch is below.
