Meaning that the kernel module for the card is loaded and the card is
seen by envy24control? If so, you just probably need to store the state
of the mixer (some settings and/or controls may have changed in the new
alsa). Do:
  /usr/sbin/alsactl store
And then:
  /usr/sbin/alsactl restore
It should not complain anymore...
