Sound card won't work unless I do a soundcard detection in FC2

FC2 kernel 2.6.6 custom

My sound card won't work right after booting up unless I go to Menu>System Settings>Sound Card Detection. I am just curious as to what this gui app does so I can possibly put it in a script so I don't have to do it. I know it is being recognized on boot,
# dmesg

ALSA device list:
#0: Intel 82801BA-ICH2 at 0xdc00, irq 9

however I keep seeing this in /var/log/messages
Aug 29 12:44:00 jon modprobe: FATAL: Error running install command for sound_slot_1

# cat /etc/modprobe.conf

alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install sound-slot-0 && { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }

Setup your card and run alsactl store (as root).
Then add this line to your rc.local:
alsactl restore

I added this, and now it seems to work, however, I think I have a problem with xine and frontend gxine. When I go to play an mp3, it skips through all the songs, and doesn't play anything. If I play something in XMMS first, then go to gxine, it will play the songs.
