alsaconf recognizes soundcard
i had to run
"alsactl store" to get it working
after a reboot everything is gone, looking for suggestions ;)
everything is gone? maybe the volume is just set to zero? try aumix -v100 mutante 22:36, 13 Jul 2005 (CEST)
i think, i had a similar problem under fedora core 3 once: every setting worked, but after a reboot everything i changed was set back to normal (meaning muted). my workaround was to put "alsactl restore" in some startup script.
