Soundcards dancing around - Ubuntu

Hello, I'm using the latest dapper updates. I have a computer with a VIA soundcard in the motherboard and a PCI SoundBlaster.

    Default Soundcards dancing around

    Hello,

    I'm using the latest dapper updates.

    I have a computer with a VIA soundcard in the motherboard and a PCI
    SoundBlaster. Since Breezy times, the SB appeared at /dev/dsp and the VIA
    as /dev/dsp1, always.

    This was convenient since I wanted the SB as default, and ALSA used the
    first one so everything worked right.

    Yesterday, when booting, I observed no sound. After some looking around, I
    noticed with lshal that the cards where identified in reverse order, so
    now /dev/dsp was the VIA one, and the default.

    I changed in /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf the default card from 0 to 1,
    everything seemed ok (except for flash within firefox, that I didn't manage
    to make sounds). But everything else, arts, mpg123, amarok etc used the 1
    default alsa card I had forced.

    Today, the cards appear again in reverse, with the SB in first place. I
    wonder if this is due to development changes, if there's some way to force
    the default by name instead of index, and if I should report these things
    to the development team, now that we are so close to release. If so, what
    would the best place to do it?

    Any ideas?

    Hello, Jano. You will have to look in the /etc/rc scripts to see what
    processes are started during boot. That is a chore but there must be some
    knowlegable one who can tell you which one to change or look at.
