No sound with SB Audigy se seens i've installed a GTX 660

Postby kibatz on Sun Mar 17, 2013 8:03 am

(using GNU/Linux mint 14 64 Bit)
Recently i've installed a nvidia gtx 660 (Asus GTX660), and now i have no sound with my Soundblaster Audigy SE. i had no problem at all with my sound card before with my nvidia 8800gt.

I dont see my Soundblaster Audigy SE in the audio output in sound parameter , i only see the HDA NVidia digital stereo (HDMI).

look like there is a conflict with the HDMI of the graphic card...

the strange thing is that when a do a lspci | grep -i audio i see my card:
Code: Select all
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0e0b (rev a1)
09:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 03)

£ALso when i do a lsmod | grep snd
