When the freshrpm's version of alsa installs under FC1, it creates 
entries (via alsacfg or something of that nature) for post-install and 
pre-remove which adjust the volume to previously saved levels, and saves 
it for next time (respectively). Perhaps that's just "missing" this time 

Now if I could only keep that card as default - I also have a logitech 
webcam (usb) with a mic - this will occasionally get picked up and set 
as the default audio device. no amount of aliasing will change the order 
to force it as dsp1 vs dsp. Thoughts?
