Upgrade from SuSE 10.0 to 10.1 - now no sound!

I upgraded my installation of SuSE 10.0 to 10.1, and now my sound card doesn't work in Linux. It is fine in Windows (i am multi-booting)

I try and configure my Audigy 2ZS card using yast2 - it shows up, but when I use the quick autmatic setup (or indeed the normal one), I get the following message:

"An error occurred during the installation of SB Audigy 2 ZS (SB0350)

The kernel module snd-emu10k1 for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters."

Please help!

    This is covered in the SuSe lists, it's a common issue:

    This didn't work - when I run lsmod there is no emu10k1 module apparent in /proc/modules.

    Therefore, I cannot completely remove it, and put it back - as it doesn't exist.

    Anyway, these instructions apply for a 2.6.11.x kernel - this is no help to me as I am running (suse 9.2 as opposed to 10.1)

    I did a reinstall - all is fine now.
