You have 2 sound cards? If so, you need to configure them so they come up in
the right order. I have a SB Live! and an integrated sound card. Here is my
$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
options snd-emu10k1 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-via82xx
options snd-via82xx index=1
This configuration makes sure that the SB card is the default card. I
remember spending a _lot_ of time trying to get sound out of my box until I
figured out how to set up the default sound card. Note that alsaconf
doesn't do this.
