You can use as many cards as you wish provided they're supported by
ALSA. Is your built-in sound chipset working properly with 5.10? Which
additional sound card did you attempt to install?

Both the sound cards are individually compatible to Ububtu. But when we
putting them together, then only one of them is getting detected. So
the problem. The details of the card are:

Built in -Sound Max Integrated Digital Audio (AC 97)

Add on : Yamaha DS-XG (YMF724F)

The problem is how do we make them work together at the same time.


Thanks & regards
