Default Sound Problems

To get the sound to work I have to run alsaconf
every time I boot

I have the following Kernel
2.6.24-1-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Mar 27 16:52:38 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/L

Any Ideas

1 idea: as a side-effect alsaconf kills soundservers like esd, 'liberating' the
naked alsa-devices.

To see which applications keep the sounddevices busy run:

fuser -v $( find /dev -group audio )

Default Sound Problems

Why do I have to run alsaconf each time I boot?
After booting the system I have no sound, I the run alsaconf
and everything works.

run this command in a terminal before you run alsaconf and post its output.

fuser -v $( find /dev -group audio )
This returns nothing.

reasoning backwards, I would try ( before running alsaconf ):

$( find /dev -group audio )

to see if the sounddevices are created

cat /proc/asound/cards

to see if your card is recognised

lsmod | grep snd

to see if the module is loaded ( assuming it is not compiled-in )

To me it seems the usb-camera is in the way.
Do you have the same problem if you boot without the camera plugged in?
There are ways to give all 'cards' a fixed order, whether they are plugged in or
not. Afaik it is done in /etc/modprobe.d/sound .

Right now I don't have physical access to the machine so
I can't unplug the USB camera
The /etc/modprobe.d/sound look like this:

ed:~# more /etc/modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
options snd-via82xx index=0
ed:~#
