Thanks a lot. You did lead me to the solution after all.Great. Discover was
what was loading that esssolo1 in the first place. Now that I plugged in the
It wont load. Now, I took out the blacklist from HotPlug, just to see if it
behaves the same way, and as it turnes out, if hotplug loads the module, I
dont have the same problem with the MIC. So after all, I dont even need to
use the aumix solution. The problem was that discover loaded the module with
the MIC set loud, and hotplug doesnt do that. Great. I will include a bug
report to Debian.
Thanks for all your help
