    ALSA Configuration


    I've finally got sound working after a resintall of the latest kernel
    also using PCI Sound blaster card. Now something weird keeps
    happening.. Initially ALSA starts but there is no sound so i run
    alsaconf and great stuff sound is working.. I've disabled the onboard
    sound in the bios. I run aslactl store to keep the settings or so i
    think but when i reboot again no sound.. i have to run alsa config each
    time.. since it requires user input i can't just call it on boot up.

    anyone any ideas?

    Alsaconf is supposed to modify your modules.dep file for you, however it is possible that the file is not being modified, and thus when you boot your system the driver modules for your sound card are not being loaded. When running alsaconf, it shuts down any running instance of the alsa driver, probes for your card, loads the kernel driver modules if availible, and then restarts the alsaserver. What distrobution are you running and what kernel version, etc..?
