No suported PCI Sound card found.....


Well my sound was workinf fine until I used swaret to upgrade almost everything (except lilo and kernel).
Afters solving some Gnome issues I noticed that I had no sound, If I run alsaconf I get the No suported PCI Sound card..... message.
I noticed that when linux loads it shows this, same when I run alsaconf.
modinfo: snd: no module by that name found
modinfo: snd: no module by that name found
modinfo: snd: no module by that name found

lsmod gies me this
module Size Used by Not tainted
soundcore 3332 0 (autoclean)
radeon 102340 1
uhci 24496 0 (unused)
ehci-hcd 16872 0 (unused)
usbcore 58400 1 [uhci ehci-hcd]

mii 2304 0 [8139too]
crc32 2880 0 [8139too]
agpgart 39576 3
ntfs 51040 3 (autoclean)


Ive done a search and found some topics related to this but none gave me a solution or I was simple unable to understand it

Well, not telling us what soundcard your using doesn't help us at all. What do you get with a lspci output? What kind of card is it? Have you tried loading the module if not already loaded manually?

Should use the cmpci module. Try loading it like:

modprobe cmpci

If it loads properly, you can then test your sound. Perhaps check the settings of /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer if you have them.. make sure they are rw-rw-rw.. well, basically chmod 666 /dev/dsp /dev/mixer

If it works after modprobing the module, just add it to load at boot time in your rc.modules file in /etc/rc.d

Update after you added more to your post when I was replying..

If its not finding your module, I'd say something swaret updated removed or changed it on your system. I would check your /lib/modules/<kernel-version> and see if you can't locate the snd-cmipci module.

When I do modprobe cmpci I get sounds, I execute the Chomd commands but I still get the no Audio device when trying to acces the audio controls (via the speaker button).
I cheked and the only place where I found snd-cmipci is under /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/sound but its named snd-cmipci.o.gz
