Yes, give some effort. I think you needs to mute the digital output jack 
to get sound. Have a look at the docs at alsa-project.org.

Please do not use the workaround (ie enabling oss driver) yet, since this 
is cooker and it should be fixed.

Many things need to be changed with the default mixer settings, but I have 
had still no time to look into it (==modifying draksound to do this).

Thierry, if you have time :-P, this really needs some works. Many bug 
reports stem from this.

I think we need the possibility in draksound to run a small script 
depending on the soundcard. For the sblive this script could do the 

-enable midi on sblive (this might need a gui component to load the 
-in proc there is a entry called oss_mixer (IIRC not at home now), here 
you can couple alsa wave surround to an OSS mixer entry like IGain. Wave 
surround is volume control of rear speakers.
-always mute analog output jack
-find a way to couple wave surround to Master, if this is possible (I 
asked on alsa devel but my message got ignored for list acceptence. 
Thierry, I think you are subscribed there??)
-modify some other mixer settings to enable CD sound, capturing etc out of 
the box.

I am willing to try writing a shell script at least the sblive. But my 
perl is to bad for modifying draksound
