After a restart today, my Audigy2 card stopped being recognized by alsa. The card worked fine until I restarted the machine.

alsa-info.sh link: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=17fdc192d339afe0982313f7b0a9c88faa96a378

the modules are loaded:
Code:
strazce@thor ~ $ lsmod | grep snd
snd_emu10k1           133208  0
snd_usb_audio         101268  1
snd_util_mem            2148  1 snd_emu10k1
snd_ac97_codec        108176  1 snd_emu10k1
snd_usbmidi_lib        18310  1 snd_usb_audio
snd_hwdep               5782  2 snd_usb_audio,snd_emu10k1
ac97_bus                1079  1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_rawmidi            18179  2 snd_usbmidi_lib,snd_emu10k1

snd_hda_intel          24182  3
snd_hda_codec          73533  2 snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_intel

but alsa doesn't see the Audigy (emu10k1) card
Code:
strazce@thor ~ $ aplay -l

hi,
maybe you don't have
Code:
ALSA_CARDS="emu10k1"

in you make.conf? or you haven't compiled alsa-tools with the "alsa_cards_emu10k1" USE-flag?

btw, how did you managed to set up the card the first time? :)

The card was working for about 4 years, I made no updates before this restart, so USE flags and make.conf should not make any difference. Anyways, i do have ALSA_CARDS="emu10k1" in make.conf
Code:
[ebuild   R    ] media-sound/alsa-tools-1.0.26:0.9  USE="gtk -fltk" ALSA_CARDS="emu10k1 -darla20 -darla24 -echo3g -emu10k1x -gina20 -gina24 -hdsp -hdspm -ice1712 -indigo -indigoio -layla20 -layla24 -mia -mixart -mona -pcxhr -rme32 -rme96 -sb16 -sbawe -sscape -usb-usx2y -vx222" 1,714 kB


I'm currently running an update (there is a lot of KDE packages, so it will take a while), then I will try to reboot into a Ubuntu Live CD to see if it isn't a hardware problem.

I tried Ubuntu 12.10 Live USB, the Audigy card works fine in Ubuntu, so it's not a hardware problem.

alsa-info.sh: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=3174cbf43c8bd61a9c58a1755dd07d767b20e698
dmesg: http://pastebin.com/H0uPF9yu
(in Ubuntu)

OK. I rebooted back to Gentoo with kernel updated to 3.8.13 and the Audigy card suddenly reappeared.

I have no idea what could have happened - with the older kernel, the card worked normally, then suddenly stopped working after a reboot - I tried rebootig several times, it still wouldn't work. Now everything seems fine.
