Thanks a lot for this advice. I finally got some time to try it but I
don't want to mess my Planet CCRMA installation. What should I do to
recompile alsa? I downloaded the alsa-driver source from the alsa site
and modified the file usbquirks.h located inside the folder
alsa-kernel/usb. I did configure and make and everything seems ready for
installation. Should I just install on top of the CCRMA alsa-driver?
Both are version 1.0.9 but the installed one has a "b" at the end
(1.0.9b-1.rhfc3.ccrma). If I try to uninstall the alsa-driver using
synaptic it warns about uninstalling a very long list of applications
that depend on it.

Sorry for this, but I'm still a newby on Linux.
