Author Topic: Something I thought I'd share about ALSA, UDEV, and multiple sound cards...  (Read 1604 times)

Apparently, due to UDEV, ALSA doesn't always work well with multiple sound cards.  It doesn't always keep the same priority order from one boot to the next.  So sometimes when I would boot up to KDE, the wrong soundcard would be showing through "alsamixer" (I wasn't hearing sound).

See the info here on the ALSA wiki:

My fix for this was adding my own ALSA restart script at startup (rc4).  Works like a charm now.

Just thought I'd share.
