a replacement for alsaconf which could also deal with USB (and
firewire cards as soon as it gets familiar with linux), which
can not only write a new but only read an existing
configuration, which allows the user to order the cards as
desired including the ability to set the default device and
so on.

Furthermore a subsection which automatically tries to look if
there are realtime modules and to help the user setting them
up as well as a small benchmark which creates a default jackd
config for the user.

Errr, that's it so far, and it's just unrealistic to achieve
all these goals ;-) .

Where I stuck was autoprobing. I wanted to probe all existing
modules step by step and then configure the one I was told
that it did fit a card. UNfortunately, I get no error result
when I load a module for which there's no actual hardware :
( .

Anyway, meanwhile there's kasound and the author plans to
include some of the above features, so I'll help with it
during the autumn and winter months.

Best regards
