    [SOLVED] Sound card settings change each startup

    I've been finally running some audio programs which was my original intention of using Ubuntu. My only problem is every time I boot up I never know what my sound cards place will be given, 0,1, or 2. I have three sound devices.
    1 - Onboard - disabled in bios but still shows up in Gusty
    2 - M-audio 2496
    3 - Sound Blaster Live

    I mainly use just the M-audio but sometimes I might want some sound out of the SBlive. Anyways everytime I boot up I have to check "/proc/asound/cards"
    to find the number of each card to set up Jack for recording. Is there any way to keep the card numbers constant on every boot?

    Solved

    I found this solution in another forum so I figured I'd post it here & in the Multimedia forum.

    To solve multiple sound cards order from changing on boot-up take the output of:

    cat /proc/asound/modules
    (Should look something like this)
    0 snd_ice1712
    1 snd_emu10k1
    2 snd_via82xx
    --------------------
    Then edit "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" file & add the following lines to the end of the file in the order you want the cards to be using the results of your output like this:

    options snd-ice1712 index=0
    options snd-emu10k1 index=1
    options snd-via82xx index=2
    -----------------------------------
    Note: The spacing has to be exact with special notice to no spaces between "=" sign.
