It seems that in order to get my sound working i have to run alsaconf every time I boot up and login. Does anyone know what I have to do so that I don't have to keep running alsaconf every time I boot up?
put your sound module in /etc/rc.conf
there is also a wiki on alsa setup
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
Here's the suggested wiki entry:
That got me up and running just fine aside from the kde part, which has changed a little since the wiki was written I'd guess.
Using any other windows manager, that entry should be all you need.
