:innocent: I do not have that problem because as a systemd-phobe I am safely denied the chance to use the Gnome desktop {when you consider just how many parts of your Linux system the combination of Gnome + Systemd has their slimy tentacles, not just touching, but damn near locked around the throat of, it is not surprising that any alternative system has difficult wrenching control back of things}. Sadly though, since my upgrade to Debian Stretch I am still being nobbled by a third division of the Pottering-ware (Micro-$haft) of the Linux world - i.e. pulseaudio if I properly kill it (and remember to set the autospawn option to the non-default no - something along the lines of a wooden stake through its heart!) I can by modprobeing snd-cs4281 and snd-hda-intel get my sound cards activated and by then changing everything that then appears in /dev/snd/ to have the group users or audio and allow group rw access I can actually get ALSA to operate them and produce sound. However, should I remove the stake and allow pulseaudio to start: I can never get user access to them. EITHER KDE and just about every application sees a single "pulseaudio" device that is coupled to a default device that just happens to be the null one OR the KDE control shows all the other devices as well - but they are greyed out and inaccessible... :rage:

... I am going to be look forward to the release of Devuan "Ascii" {They are diverging release names after the common ancestor of "Jessie"}!
... and/or have another go at getting a Debian/Hurd install up and running. :alien:
