Because you pasted the whole things below your signature.
I didn't read texts below the signature because they are usually
quoted texts.

Regarding the alsactl problem.  When alsactl returns 'no state is
present', then it's not necessarily a driver problem but could be
rather a system problem.  At least, you have to figure out what is the
cause. For example, check /proc/asound/cards whether the driver is
really loaded when you call alsactl.
