this card is pretty much dead afaik. i doubt the ALSA drivers will work
with the current alsa lib - they are more than 2 yrs old. unless you are
willing and able to port and possibly rewrite the driver, it's probably
a lost cause. and even if you are, i heard the za2 has some exquisite
design mistakes that make supporting it rather challenging.... save
yourself the hassle and get another card. today, there are many
alternatives for high-quality digital i/o.
