My PCI soundcard is not detected : it is not mentionned in the output of lspci. Also alsaconf can't find it.
I have had the alsaconf problem for monthes but curiously, it continued to work very fine (MP3 playback etc...) until recently, when I upgraded my system.
Here's more about my recent upgrade.
Slack-current from approx. july 2004
linux 2.6.7-ck6 (Con Kolivas patchset)
standard slackware ALSA packages
Slack-current from october 2004
all slackware ALSA packages removed
linux 2.6.9-cko2 (Con Kolivas Overloaded patchset), with alsa-driver and alsa-oss enabled as modules.
alsa-lib and alsa-utils compiled from source against this kernel.
1) I first tried to keep my slackware alsa packages but it didn't work (got weird, painful noise + very unstable system)
2) in my new kernel config, I have compiled _as modules_ everything about sound. So that I could use alsaconf -m. But that didn't change anything.
Here's the output of lspci :

The "Multimedia audio" entry is not a sound card, it's a PCI Radio FM tuner plugged into the Line Input. Of course, currently, I can't listen to it. Nor can I listen to Audio CDs.
MY HARDWARE :
AMD Athlon XP processor
MSI K7T266 Pro2 motherboard
SB Live! PCI soundcard (EMU10K1)
I hope you can help. This looks like a tough one!
