Re: Problem with Alsa
I have been pretty happy with alsa for the last few years. It even
configured an ISA-PnP card without problems (or the only problem was my
intervention in the process:)
There is one problem with alsa (or udev) and that is that if my webcamera
is connected to the USB port then it becomes the original sound system and I
cannot use the other system. I have tried this on two computers but just
decided to plug out my webcamera at boot time.
Don't think it is a solution to the problems below but hope it helps.
