[linrad] Help, I've killed my audio


    I've done something really stupid and now linrad doesn't work without 
configuring ALSA everytime I boot the computer.   The audio works fine 
under KDE when the pc boots but not for linrad.   Can anyone tell me what 
I've done?

    If I run linrad with out running alsaconf first, linrad tries to 
configure the audio and the pc locks up with this on the screen...

    "trying to open /dev/dsp RDWR. Device defective if hangs here. Read 

So I rebooted the pc and here is what is in soundboard_init.log...
Checking /dev/dsp
/dev/dsp opened as WRONLY
16bit format supported
Max no of channels = 4
Max input speed 48000 Hz

Not much help.   Here is the end of my modules.conf file...

If I type in dmesg here is a portion of what I get...

    Obviously I've managed to mess up something but I don't know what or 
how to fix it.   Any ideas would be great.
