alsamixer fails to load on SUSE 9.3


When I try to run alsamixer from the shell (even as root), I get the following:

alsamixer: function snd_mixer_load failed: Invalid argument

If it is of any help, my lsmod is the following:

I have already tried repairing my system. I need to be able to use alsamixer in order to get my computer to play sound. I'm on SUSE 9.3, if that helps.

hmm, do you have any multimedia playback at all? It's all broken in suse 9.3, tyou need to dl yast online update packaged from some german ftp.

I had a wierd problem where the AC'97 driver was completely shot. Try reinstalling and not doing any YOU. That worked for us.
