Sorry for replying off-topic, but this is something that really bothers 
me as a user.

I wish Linux audio weren't a black art.  There are too many systems, 
eash written to bypass problems with the others, incompatible, with 
adapters between them .... it becomes hard just to get audio to work at 
all.  There's folk remedies like "reconfigure alsa every time you boot" 
and such.  I suspect what Linux audio really needs is adequate 
documentation written by people who know what's going on.

It's almost as bad as trying to keep flash up-to-date and working.
