[PlanetCCRMA] RME 9652 - ALSA - Pulseaudio problems

I forgot to say I'm running Fedora 12.  Things may have changed since then.

And I also forgot to say I use a Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS PCI card for system 
sounds and non-music app sounds.

Good Luck,

That's very interesting.  I had already disable the onboard chip and sound from 
a radeon video card, but I still needed to delete pulseaudio.
