[1] is no link anymore. The webpage doesn't exists!

/etc/asound.conf doesn't exists.
I commented out the line in ~/.asoundrc and rebooted. Now Jack starts, 
but with the onboard-Soundcard. I plugged in my Headphones into the 
onboard card, but still have no sound! If I select the ESI Soundcard in 
the configuration, there is the old error again.

Some days ago I read a post in a board about enabling the 
onboard-soundcard in the BIOS - I never touched the BIOS, except for 
installing operating systems from a USB-Stick. Could it be that I have 
to enable the ESI in the BIOS? I don't think so, but maybe you know more...
