Modules.conf ?


I am trying to set-up my Nvidia nForce snd-intel8x0 sound card.

I need to modify my /etc/modules.conf file. The file exists, but the file size is 0Kb and I cannot open to edit.

Run
ls -l /etc/modules.conf
What does it show you? Also try to open is as root.

Think you were right. I was opening with bash# not root#

The sound now works - but I still have this annoying distortion every couple of minutes. DOH!!
