Re: Proposal: stop configuring soundcards through /etc/modprobe.conf

So our current scheme has a number of problems, which can be workaround, but that would require some serious surgery to system-config-soundcard, and I wonder if this is the right solution. Esp since we have been slowly moving away from using /etc/modprobe.conf at all, to a system where udev loads all drivers (and udev also already loads the soundrivers).

We've matched this no longer using /etc/modprobe.conf for driver loading and there by loosing the ability to determine "device numbers" (eth0 / eth1, sdf / sdg) with smarter userspace support to determine which device is what: determine which ethernet card is which by hardware address, hal for removale media. I would like to propose to do the same for sound.

Given that pulseaudio is integrated with hal and that we are
moving to pulseaudio, I think that the solution is to stop trying to hard assign indexes to soundcards, or to add module aliases for them to /etc/modprobe.conf. Just let udev load the modules (as it already does).

Right, this is already done in rawhide - there is nothing that automatically
touches soundcards.

Ah, good, someone might want to inform Martin Stransky (the system-config-soundcard maintainer ) about this though, as I discussed this with him in bugzilla and he didn't seem to know this.

Thanks & Regards,
