Re: alsaconf does it but reboot kills it

first of all thank you so much!

taking into mind what some of you imformed me of
looked through the difference between
re-alsaconf-ed sound making stable and unstable
i though i saw snd-powermac in the /etc/modules of stable
(maybe just got confused with other file such as /etc/modprobe.d/sound)
and simply added that to /etc/modules of unstable
and hoooray! unstable's mpg321 and alsamixer is working okay
after rebooting into stable
found that disappearing from stable's /etc/modules
so did the same and now doth debians are making sound even after re-booting

when things were weird after re-booting
i saw things like
"setting up ALSA ... warning : 'alsa-ctl restore' failed with error message
'alsactl : load_state:1329: No sound cards found"
both on shutdownings and bootings
now i don"t
but i see
"ondemand governor failed to load due to too long transition latency"
only on unstable ... wonder what this is ..

some wonderings still remains

in both debians' /etc/modprobe.d/sound has:

alias snd-card-0 snd-powermac
options snd-powermac index=0

is this saying that the snd-card-0 is the true thing i have on my machine?
but when alsaconf-ing i saw it saying that snd-powermac was found
as someone says
alsaconf is rather messing up the system from it should have been?
i think the pure install didn't make beeps too
but in my case calling the card snd-powermac is just the long and winding
or is it actually is that old snd-powermac
and what am doing now is the right way to get along with the comimg
this is the very early stage of setting up the environment
so if i should simply re-install and do things without alsaconf -- i mean
if that makes things clean" i would ..

i also had "alsa09" in the /etc/libao.conf of stable
but in unstable it was just "alsa"
i removed "09" from stable
but it seems to be okay ... wonder why it was there
