kontrol on missing list


I have upgraded to kde 4.2, and two things catch me right away.

1. Switching the kde thing back to menu, I see kontrol listed, but its 
apparently a dead menu entry, not even a busy pointer when I click on it.

2. Under F8, my logitech keyboards media keys for mute and volume control Just 
Worked(TM) without me doing anything.  I think this may be related to audio in 
general cuz none of the system sounds are working although I can listen to 
news video and such.  The root of this may go all the way back to the fact 
that the system finds 3 audio outputs, and seems to want to default to the 
intel HDA built into my HD2400 Pro video card, and which is not even bonded 
out to the card edge, let alone to rear panel connections unless its in the 
actual monitor plug, and this monitor has no speakers.  So the first thing is 
to restore all the audio signal steering to the Audigy-2 (sb400) sound card.
That section of my /etc/modprobe.conf:

options snd cards_limit=8 <-new after f10 upgrade
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
options snd-emu10k1 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel index=2
alias snd-card-2 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel index=2
alias snd-card-7 snd-usb-audio <-new after F10 upgrade
options snd-usb-audio index=7 <-also new, I didn't add these.

I also had entries for the motherboard audio, which apparently didn't survive 
the upgrade.

On a startx, pulseaudio says it can't do something and will default to the 
intel HDA, then fades away before I can memorize what it offers for the 
reason, so I assume that is where all my missing system sounds are going.

I don't even know where to start.  Help?


Cheers, Gene
