Edgy Eft-ing Sound

This is kind of weird, coming two weeks after I upgraded, but my audio card just completely stopped working. At first, I thought this was one of those little Linux driver farts---I spent half the summer restarting X to get Skype working again---but a reboot didn't fix it and there were no relevant error messages to speak of. Following these directions fixed it. The key part, I think, is making sure asound.conf exists---it seems that somebody (not me) had deleted it. In fact, I can't find a Ubuntu package that wants to take credit for installing asound.conf, much less one that wants to take credit for deleting it.
