I have a Creative SoundBlaster Live 5.1 and it works good. I just run "alfaconf" and it searches for soundcards. I select the SB 5.1 and it installs it. When I then view the file /proc/asound/cards it correctly shows my soundcard and it works fine. But when I reboot my computer or just start it up in general, the settings are reset and the SB 5.1 is not working untill I run alsaconf again.
Any idea how to make the configuration permanent?
