ALSA sound: my hack
I have had problems with ALSA sound whenever I install and start using a new kernel. Here is what I do to make it work each time. It is here mainly for my records and help for others.
Run alsaconf to reconfigure ALSA for your soundcard and loading of appropriate kernel module.
~$ /etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop
Delete the file asound.state:
~$ rm /var/lib/alsa/asound.state
~$ /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start
This makes ALSA behave normally and sound is back again.
