======Does anyone know how we can stop MCE changing the asound.conf file at reboot?=========================
I've seen this question asked here many times, not just about asound.conf, but about a lot of the config files as well as the startup files.
I'm sure I read somewhere that MCE overwrites the files using values stored in the database somewhere. Can anyone confirm? If so, then perhaps the way forward to to dig in to the database (or wherever else it's getting the replacements from) and change it there, rather than trying to stop the files being replaced / changed?
It's reasonable to assume that whoever set up MCE initially to overwrite this stuff, did so for a good reason. We risk breaking something if we prevent it doing this.
