Devs/AHI and devs/AudioModes) Mixer still doesn't work. If I run it, gui doesn't
show up and the system sort of locks up by making some programs (e.g. Find)
Maybe the poblem is in Mixer.prefs which looks like this:
But, hey, if I delete this file, problem still remains...argh...
P.S. My card is Envy24HT. But if I use files Envy24HT.audio and ENVY24HT in AHI,
Sam does not even start properly (no AmiDock, no RAWBinfo, etc...).
I may have missed it, but you never said what card you have, only what chip it uses.
Your problems does not sound like a software but a hardware problem, especially a card that is not seated right or, worse, that may either be not supported (hardware-wise) or broken in some way.
You told us that, if the card is in place the problems start, regardless if the drivers are installed or not, though the drivers in places make it worse.
What is the name of your card? (i.e. Terratec Aureon Space)
I'd suggest to get the card out, clean the contacts, reseat it and double check that it's firmly in place and try again without the drivers installed.
Now check all the problemmakers like "find" to work correctly and only then install the HT drivers and test further.
I don't know your hardware but the problem you described had the same effects on my XE (and it was a PCI card gone out of it's seating back then)

We are in the beginning of a mass extinction.
And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.
