Sound card not recognized

Here's a puzzle.
My jaunty ubuntu studio needed to be re-installed today, and I did so using a 2-week-old installation disk.
There were lots of updates.
When I finished, I needed to set the system up to use wine and my Creative X-fi card, so I did the following:
apt-get purge pulseaudio (wine does not work with pulseaudio)
Then I compiled and installed a new alsa-driver that supports my Creative X-fi soundcard.
asoundconf list gave me:
Generic (this supports my X-fi card)
So I set-default-card Generic.
And that worked to set the default.
But neither wine nor Audacity sees my Generic (Creative X-fi) soundcard. All they see is Intel.
Going through System / Admin / Sound Preference gives me the correct mixer option but not the correct playback option.
What's up? What have I done differently this time? Why doesn't my X-fi work?
