Re: alsaconf needed every boot

Hello. Yes, I did search the mail archives, and found lots of potential answers in the search results. However, the web-server could neither find nor display them; so, I am putting forward this (sadly) common question here: is there a way to just have good ol' debian load the sound drivers for my soundcard automatically, without me needing to run alsaconf each time? I've tried entering the module in /etc/modules file, but this fails. The required module is snd-intel8x0. I'm using Debian Etch, with KDE.

I just went through the same issue and got it solved. The problem is
that alsaconf uses a dynamic dev for the snd configuration (via udev)
instead of a static /dev/snd. Additionally, Etch does not bring the
latest and greatest version of udev (I believe it only includes
hotplug, could be wrong here), but anyway, with an apt-get install
udev you should be on your way (in my case I had to remove hotplug and
use udev, but the apt-get will tell you).
Once this is done, do the good ol' process of executing ./snddevices
(inside the /usr/share/alsa-base directory)
Finally, update your alsamixer and save with alsactl store
