alsaconf fails to load driver for snd-intel8x0


I tried to install ALSA daemon 1.0.10 and when installing, failed to install the intel8x0 module, so I uninstalled it, and reinstalled ALSA daemon 1.0.8 using Synaptic, but when I run alsaconf, I get:
Code:

Setting default volumes...


===============================================================================

 Now ALSA is ready to use.
 For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer.

 Have a lot of fun!
and when I try and run any sound application like amaroK I get "/dev/dsp does not exist"
I don't really know why this is happening (hence me asking here)

Does anyone know why this is happening?

it didn't dawn on me until I was playing around in XMMS to try another sound daemon, I tried the Enlightenment Sound Daemon, and it says the same thing:
Code:
/dev/dsp: No such device
so I am a little confuzzled by everything

Did you follow the documentation for your card at www.alsa-project.org - it takes you through the install.

after what you said XavierP, I redownloaded the ALSA 1.0.10 daemin archives, and installed ALSA 1.0.10, and found out what I did wrong..instead of "./configure --with-cards=intel8x0" I did "./configure --with-cards=intel8x9"

With this, I now have ALSA daemon working again

Cool I have used those instructions every time I have reinstalled and they have worked every time without fail. Congrats on getting it all working.

Nvidia (chipset Intel8x0) Modprobe fails

Following the tutorial at:

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...odule=intel8x0

I run about 1/5th through it and hit this line:

modprobe snd-intel8x0;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

which should start my soundcard. Instead, I get these errors

/lib/modules/2.4.33.3/kernel/sound/acore/snd-timer.o: /lib/modules/2.4.33.3/kernel/sound/acore/snd-timer.o: unresolved symbol snd_compat_kcalloc
