SB Live settings

Peter Laws N5UWY
Trying to get gMFSK running under Kubuntu 6.10 (Edgy).  Having trouble
finding the magic switch for the infamous "SB Live 5.1 Dell OEM [SB0220]"
(not a Dell OEM at all but I haven't pulled the card to get the real model
number from the S/N).

Anyway, alsamixer sees the builtin VIA 8237 as the primary card (see
below) but that's not what I'm using.  I can see the SB with alsamixer
with -c 1, of course, but oh so many switches!  Any ideas why I'm not
getting sound AT ALL (let alone to/from the radio)?  Is there something I
need to do to tell the OS that the SB is "primary"?

I can, at least, key the radio via the RB+, so that part is good.  And I
know the SB is good because I boot to XP to use MMTTY on RTTY.

  cat /proc/asound/cards
  0 [V8237          ]: VIA8237 - VIA 8237
                       VIA 8237 with CMI9761 at 0xc000, irq 209
  1 [Live           ]: EMU10K1 - SB Live 5.1 Dell OEM [SB0220]
                       SB Live 5.1 Dell OEM [SB0220] (rev.10,
serial:0x80661102) at 0xd400, irq 217
