ALSA keeps going away



Every time I run alsaconf, ALSA comes back. When I reboot, it goes away. Sounds from the gnome desktop always work fine.

I tried manually doing "alsactl store" as suggested in the archives, but it did not help.

I have driver cs46xx, which I have manually put in /etc/modules, since the hotplug package says I must, since it is blacklisted.

The gnome sound effects on the desktop work fine, and the driver loads fine although the boot says initially that the driver is disabled.

There is no entry in /proc/asound/ for my card after booting, but it is there just fine after running alsaconf again.

I have debian stable with kernel 2.6.8-2-386 and 1.0.8-7 alsa-base.
