M3N-HT Deluxe onboard sound w/ 1901 BIOS [SOLVED]


So the 1701/1901 BIOS revisions broke my sound again on this board. Unfortunately I need one of those BIOS revisions to support the X4 Phenom processor.. I'm wondering if anyone here has had any luck getting thier sound working on this board? If you have any suggestions at all please let me know.

NVM, I got it working. After recompiling alsa packages, running alsaconf, setting everything back with alsactl, etc. It's working again. ::whew:: I know in the past with this mobo theres been a few BIOS revisions that broke the sound, and I assumed thats what happened again. Sounds great though!
