how to run system-config-soundcard automatically during starting process?


I use FC3. There is a strange thing happen in Gnome: everytime I start the computer, I have to run System Settings => Soundcard detection and click "Play test sound" in order for the sound system to work! (if not, it just simply keeps silent !)

Do anyone know how to solve this issue? Or, anyone can tell me how to make this process run automatically during the initializing process (I mean, automatically run Soundcard detection and automatically 'click' on "Play sound test" ^_^)?

I posted this in another thread but will put it here as well...

alsaconfig isn't on my system. I did a package scan with yum and concluded it is an out-dated utility (I'm using alsa drivers V1.0.10). Prior to scanning with yum, I found alsaunmute on my system and gave it a try and that's all it took to make my sound card work .

In order to make this permanent, I added:
/usr/bin/alsaunmute 0
to the final line in the start section of my /etc/init.d/alsasound init script (My card is card 0. I imagine in a 2-soundcard system, second card is card 1, adjust for your configuration). I now have sound following a reboot without running system-config-soundcard.
