Not sure what darkice is. But configuring it to "hw:1,0" is a bad
idea. You should not use the low-level "hw:xxx" access mode, unless
you really know what you are doing. Use the higher level "front:xxx"
or so. Also, don't specify more than the card identifier, i.e. don't
use "front:xxx,yyy", use "front:xxx". Finally, as I already mentioned,
use device names, or control device node paths for opening. Such as:
"front:Intel", or "front:/dev/snd/by-path/pci-0000:00:1b.0" or
This will make things much more robust and independant of device index
