2322Re: Maestro 3 works with latest ALSA drivers

      I believe I did exactly these. All was well until

      # /etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound restart
      Shutting down sound driver: alsactl: No soundcards found...
      Starting sound driver: snd-card-maestro3 done
      No mixer config in /etc/asound.conf, you have to unmute your card!

      Then I try to run 'alsamixer' but fail with
      alsamixer: failed to open mixer #0/#0: No such file or directory

      And running gmix is hardly better -- I just get a diagnostic message
      saying no mixers found, make sure you have sound support compiled into
      the kernel. I'm running RedHat7.0 fresh out of the box, basically.

      Thoughts? Help?
