RDAlsaconfig never changes. Its just RD that cant seem to sustain a reboot.
The rest of the system could care less. aplay and alsamixer see and use it
every time.

As for other software, not that im aware of. The machine is installed using
freds installer script from his github.

Hmmm. Odd. Could some other sound application be getting a log on the card
before caed runs sometimes and not others?

If jack is present on the machine but not in use, try running jack when Riv
cannot see the card and see if jack can use the card at that point.

Is pulse in the mix on t his machine?

"AlsaConfig sees it, it's active,"

does rdalsaconfig look different when it doesn't work vs when it works?

all the best,
