Everybody here keeps saying that to me - I _don't_ have two alsactl's, I
_don't_ have 2 asound.states (or more/any other alsactl files).

My base is Slackware 10 - a pretty clean distro.

Tonight my MIC is not working again from a reboot, and I can't get it going
like I did before (??)...

Every reboot 'alsactl restore' breaks on one control or another now.

You mean -F too? I don't understand why I should have to use --force.

It's a mystery?
