Hi all , sad newbie here :(

to recap i out a fresh demudi install on our studio machine and got to 
the point where i was confident I could record line in audio etc using 
ardour, and play hydrogen etc etc.
So the date was set for the band to come in and record.
I booted the machine and alsa seems broken. errors below,, and i have no 
idea where to start.

Its possible (it was a week ago memory faded with depression) that i 
broke it when i tried to install a second sound card (thinking id get 4 
inputs, ok I have learnt that doesnt work) but what ever i have done its 

I removed the 2nd card,
tried alsaconf
tried alsactl restore (got some no file found or something)
still no go :(

Ill try and be clearer next post. the studio machine isnt always 
online(have to run a cable out) I used gaim to transfer the dmesg info 
to another box with email.

now there is a point i had to apt get install gaim with some other 
settings on sources list I wonder if that screwed something up. Im sure 
i had it working after that tho.
