It would seem that your particular version of the SBLive card is not
currently supported by the Planet CCRMA ALSA version. 

Exactly what card do you have? I've heard of problems with the version
of SBLive that comes with some Dell computers (they have not yet
released hardware specs that the alsa developers can use). 

What does lscpi -v -v say about your soundcard?
