[PlanetCCRMA] FC4 sudden sound card problem

->One possible scenario is that the wifi driver is using some hardware
resource that the soundcard needs as well...

The "sound comes back when booting into fc4's kernel" is to be expected as
you only installed the driver for CCRMA's kernel (and that's what is
apparently causing the conflict).<-

I've had a similar problem on a laptop.  I can get everything set up the way
I want it with modprobe.conf and the alsasound service, but once I reboot
the soundcard order gets jumbled.  I suspect udev is the culprit, though I'm
not sure -- this happens even when alsasound is enabled as a boot-time
service (it doesn't even get a chance to load its modules because the
modules are already loaded by the time the service script is run).  What
besides udev would load modules like this?  Kudzu?  Anyway, I put
"/sbin/service alsasound restart" in /etc/rc.local, which works fine... but
it's a kludge.  I'd rather know how to get alsa to load its own modules from
its boot service.
