What I'm struggling with is to configure my sound at start up. I have to run alsaconf everytime at startup to get my sound up and running. After running alsaconf I went to /etc/modules.conf to see if something happend there and found that alsaconf generated the following
# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF version 1.0.11 ---
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
For some reason I have another file there "modules.conf.new" but that doesn't have that above code in. So don't know if it's running this new script instead, and I don't want to delete it, as I'm not sure what the effect will be.
I went to have a look at /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to see if there weren't perhaps modprobe's that I can include there (for the sound) and found 2 other similar files there, "rc.modules-126.96.36.199" and "rc.modules-188.8.131.52.new" So now I'm not sure if I can just delete these other 2 files.
What I also find strange is that Linux completely freezes when I try to log out/reboot/turn off the computer (I have to physically restart the PC). What can cause this?
I also noted at startup that it says :
INIT: Entering runlevel: 4
INIT: cannot execute "/etc/rc.d/rc.M"
I haven't edited that file, but I have changed the default runlevel in /etc/inittab
where another similar file "inittab.new" was generated. Once again I don't know what to do about this!
Can someone help me out here?
