_______0,

Tell us the sound cards you have and how the drivers are made, either as modules or built into the kernel.

The real question is: what do you need the order for ?

many programs expect a HW:0,0 device. Else I start a program to listen music and outputs to graphics card HDMI alsa, for instance, other times some odd alsa device that only has ONE slider lands on HW:0,0. To have to trawl all the audio related config files to change device number is not desirable.

Add to /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf:
Code:
alias snd-card-0 <module name or device alias for first sound card>
alias snd-card-1 <second sound card>
<etc.>

_______0,

Sound card enumeration is controlled by module load order, when you use modules.
You can try to influence it with files created in /etc/modprobe.d

There should be a generic alsa.conf waiting for you

This should do the trick: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1045829#p1045829
If not, then this might: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1051419#p1051419

Yeah, the links are to the Arch forums, but this stuff is just as applicable to Gentoo.

what about for dynamic devices such as webcams?

by the way the .asoundrc hack sort of works. Only ncmpcpp doesn't get volume control anymore, (not that it was working anyways):

Code:
Volume: n/a


Also now I am getting this error:

Code:
/etc/init.d/alsasound start
 * Restoring Mixer Levels ...
[b]alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:3:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state[/b]         


thanks
