sounds weird. i wouldn't expect a failed alsa-state package to cause those
opkg obviouls lacks the facilities to handle diversions.
i'd suggest to login via ssh (provided it works, of course), move
/etc/asound.state somewhere else and reinstall alsa-state.
afterwards compare both files.
a second look shows the far more important
* ERROR: The following packages conflict with initscripts-openmoko:
* initscripts *
that might indeed cause the behaviour.
could you please check, if initscripts-openmoko still exists in the feed?
maybe it was replaced by initscript -- but opkg fails to do a clean update?
