I have had no sound for a long time (do not uses it much). Had an old card that old alsa had no trouble finding and working with but since about 3 years or more ago the alsa changes no longer could configure it right. I decided to finally get a new card with a Via 1724 chip. I know have discovered a whole series of problems, probably because of something stupid did long ago.
1) the Card I want is listed as 1 and cannot figure out a way to change it. (Since there seems to be a 100 different ways alsa works depending upon how you have alsa and permissions running the internet can lead to worse trouble.
2)I change the card in alsamixer but it does not stick. Is that a case of permission trouble and how do you fix that or is it a case of the card not configured properly and therefore driver not working at all?
3) Kmix crashes before getting started and if I try to start in terminal does not start and shows no error message (for error message do I need to add something to command kmix).

I have tried googling for help but other setups have other commands that aptosid does not have and I do not want to add something that could change the generally get setup the team has put together.

$cat /proc/asound/modules

Use alsamixer as normal user, and then do:
      Code:
su
alsactl store
to save your settings.

And please use code tags in our forums when pasting code - I have done that for you above as an example.
Greetings,
Chris

If you're not using the onboard audio, disable it in the BIOS. That's the easiest way. You can also manually assign the index: http://alsa.opensrc.org/MultipleCards#H ... lled_cards
