Sorry, Antti. I'm still running F7 and I have no clue. I pine for
simpler days and feel your pain. This may be even more clueless, but
could you just remove the webcam, reboot and see if your sound comes  up
properly? Plug the webcam back in, reboot and hopefully your sound card
will still be first? 

Is this a laptop with a built in webcam?? Yikes, if so about all you
could do would be to shut it down in the bios, if that is possible. In
the same vein, if this is a laptop, and lsusb shows that the webcam is
usb, in the bios you could turn off USB. THAT would kill it off, for
sure. Then continue the boot up, see if your sound works properly. That
would set it to number 1, then turn USB back on and hopefully the webcam
will be noted as the second. 

Still trouble shooting with a shotgun. I've been doing alot of that
recently. Again, I feel your pain! :) Ric
