Tried that, Michael, but still no detection. I even went to the
alsa-project site and downloaded the latest alsa-utils and tried that but
still the same thing. I have a pci SB Live and a USB Extigy and it didn't
pick up either one, even though both were seen by the system fine in lspci
and lsusb. Not a biggie for myself who has gone through this before but
would be an unhappy surprise for a noob. 

BTW, for those with an Extigy, you *must* do the following to get things to
work properly:

cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/class
mv audio.ko audio.ko.bak

Otherwise the audio module will load before the ALSA snd-usb-audio and ALSA
will not see the Extigy.
