alasa-lib-1.0.6-3 and alsa-utils-1.0.6-3
i am able to hear the sound on typing alasaconfig
command and able to use alasamixer but on restart the
everything goes wrong.after restarting the system the
alasa is not configured and unable to use alasamixer.i have to configure it
again.moreover in the volume controller everything is
locked even after unlocking.and in the volume
controller shown in the pannal it is always in the
minus position when tried to increase it automaticlly
