I too have not had a serious sound system problem in YEARS. I don't dink
with hand edits, I use alsamixer to set up my sound devices, then use
pulse to select the output/input devices as I select them. No probs. I
did make it easy for my system by using only USB sound devices. They are
not only CHEAP but trouble free. I have a USB stereo headphone with
mike, a USB 7.1 sound device (so I can blast my neighbors into the next
county if I were wanting to do that).and there is a mike on my USB web
cam. ALL easily configurable, as well as usable with alsa/pulse. I also
use the USB headphones on my laptop. The built-in speakers are crap.

Not once you start screwing around with stuff.
IF alsa cannot deal with your audio device, find an open window.
Then toss the device out the window.
(or disable it in bios)
Get a USB audio device and pray your hand edits haven't rendered alsa
useless. Ric

p/s don't use Sid
