Comment:

 mat_jack1: what is your sound card? Running alsaconf is always a bad idea
 with udev, especially with more than one sound card. Alsaconf only does
 the following things:

  * Creates aliases in /etc/modprobe.conf, but, as explained in LFS,
 aliases never work with udev due to a chicken-and-egg problem, and udev
 should be able to load sound modules even without aliases in
 modprobe.conf.

  * Unmutes audio, but you should know how to do this yourself.

 In addition, it teaches you nothing in terms of creating a working setup.
