ALSA works only when I run alsaconf


ALSA has been successfully installed on my system (A7V266-MX , ASUS motherboard , Via Sound) , and it runs only after I run alsaconf . I have to run it a root each time . Is there no way to fix this ?

Usually in /etc/rc.d/rc(5, 4, or whatever number).d. Usually those are just links to /etc/rc.d/init.d/. In there look for alsa. Make sure in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d you have a Sxxalsa with the x's being a number.

Install the alsa-libs package. I believe thats where they come from.

I thought (I may be wrong, someone corrects me)
that each time you boot up, you always execute

$HOME/.bashrc

So put your extra scripts there. However, if a
different user log in, he/she will have to run
those scripts.

Others, is there a (bash or something) script
that always run no matter which user logs in?
That's would more practical (I think).

Any bash config files be it bashrc or profile run globally from /etc. It should work like this. If /etc/profile exists then source it and then source .bash_profile. Same for /etc/bashrc and .bashrc. I think however that getting the run scripts in place would be the right thing to do since its alsa's way. As a note to the previous entry I made, Im not sure which package the run scripts get loaded out on - its either alsa-libs or alsa utils . . .see ALSA LINK for more details. If you go under the soundcards link on that page, they have a nice install proceedure tailored to your card.

I've installed the drivers , libraries , and utilities (in that order) . I know nothing beyond what the install guide told me . Even then , the ALSA drivers seem not to load at startup .

As to the install procedure tailored to my card , yes , I followed that .

I'll check again , just to be sure . How do you run a find command in Linux (RHEL 3 WS) ? I have forgotten the syntax for specifying the path where to search .

By doesn't run, do you just mean that nothing plays? This might be the issue where the volume is reset to zero every time you restart.

its find x -name "filename", where x is the directory you want to check from recursively.

if the problem is as p-static says, you need to run alsamixer. Unmute the entries, and exit back out. The you have to run alsactl --store.
