Hm, ok. I'll think about it.

I mean if I automatically configure all soundcards, that are available, I 
could imagine, that this "could" lead to problems. So I thought aloud about 
some switch to make it possible. 

Perhaps something like: knoppix alsa=ice1712,ens1371

Hm, I can't reach www.alsa-project.org atm so I can't check the possible 
parameters, but I think you could configure that once alsa is running.


edit /etc/modutils/alsa-0.9-knoppix

Put your options to the module there, then "restart" alsa with:

modprobe -r snd-ice1712
modprobe snd-ice1712

You could also add your second card, with the options as second card from 
www.alsa-project.org and then restart alsa to have botha available.

I don't have two cards, so it's not easy for me to check.

hm, it is kind of easy, but I fear there could be problems involved and I 
don't want to risk this. (So that alsa will still work everytime for all 
users that have just one card, or need just one card)
