I installed 64 studio on my Fujitsu-Siemens laptop with Echo Indigo IO soundcard. Ran alsaconf, got the sound going to Indigo, but after reboot it uses the on-board card again. I need to run alsaconf again to set it up. How do I make it remember that Echo Indigo IO is the default soundcard? Thank you!

Yes absolutely!

You can set the onboard driver to index -2 for instance options snd-via82xx-modem index=-2 That should do it. Hope it helps

Thanks Quentin!

Is it possible to setup Indigo IO as the only soundcard available, so the on-board card will be ignored? Thank you.

Check out the section on multiple sound cards. Set up the Echo as card 0. Look as User FAQ section 10 http://www.64studio.com/faq_user Cheers,

I added these lines to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base: alias snd-card-0 snd-indigoio options snd-indigoio index=0 It didn't help. ATIIXP is still the card playing by defaut.I commented out this line: #install snd-atiixp /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-atiixp $CMDLINE_OPTS && /lib/alsa/modprobe-post-install snd-atiixp It didn't help either.
