nevertheless i would appreciate that you could tell how did you do, because i'm having the same problem and it seems there's different ways to fix it.
no one of them works for me.
i've compiled the modules in the kernel, i've put them away, installed and de-installed the alsa-driver package. always the same result:
shohoku ~ # modprobe snd-hda-intel
WARNING: Error inserting snd (/lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r8tenzai/alsa-driver/acore/snd.ko): Invalid module format
WARNING: Error inserting snd_timer (/lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r8tenzai/alsa-driver/acore/snd-timer.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_pcm (/lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r8tenzai/alsa-driver/acore/snd-pcm.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
WARNING: Error inserting snd_hda_codec (/lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r8tenzai/alsa-driver/pci/hda/snd-hda-codec.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
FATAL: Error inserting snd_hda_intel (/lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r8tenzai/alsa-driver/pci/hda/snd-hda-intel.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
shohoku ~ # alsamixer
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
shohoku ~ #
i think it has something to do with libraries linking, but i don't know how
how can i make an all-fresh reinstallation only of alsa?
Any help would be infinitely appreciated
