Greetings:

I'm preparing a final draft of an article re: ALSA and I started
wondering about whatever happened to modules.conf. In my old RH9 (2.4
kernel) I was able to freely manipulate the ALSA modules (designate for
loading, reorder, set alias, etc) via /etc/modules.conf. Things have
changed a lot in 2.6.x, and /etc/modules.conf is apparently not to be
edited in Ye Olden Way. Is there a similar single file in the 2.6 file
system ? If so, where is it ? On my Debian Etch system I have this file :

/etc/modprobe.d/sound

It looks like the file to change a la the old-time modules.conf, but my
entries have no effect. Is there another file located elsewhere that I
should be editing ? Here's my /etc/modprobe.d/sound :

alias snd-card-0 snd-ice1712
options snd-ice1712 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-emu10k1
options snd-emu10k1 index=1
alias snd-card-2 snd-virmidi
options snd-virmidi index=2

Also, what's the status of a user-friendly ALSA control and operations
panel that might address such matters as ordering multiple soundcards,
write/edit .asoundrc, start/stop ALSA services, etc. ? Is the ALSA
development group pursuing anything like that ?

Best,

dp
