Default Alsa - no sound: I need to repeatedly run alsaconf every time I reboot computer

Hi Gurus,

I seem to have to rerun alsaconf to reconfigure alsa every time I reboot my computer.
I have no idea why? I am running sid with debian standard kernel:

when I run
speaker-test I hear nothing.

Here is my situation:

uname -a

Linux Rashi 2.6.23-1-amd64 #1 SMP Fri Dec 21 12:00:17 UTC 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Here are the output of

*****************

Then I run alsaconf, which recreates the modules and then it run.

When I set up alsaconf
I also run
alsactl store

but that does not seem to help on the next reboot..
Sometimes, I think I lose the sound even without the reboot, but I will check that again...
It may simply be the reboot, but may actually even lose sound without the reboot...

Any ideas what to do?

Thanks!

Mitchell

Have a look at the solution on the NewbieDOC wiki [1]. Let us know if renaming
modprobe.conf does the trick.
