Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have compiled alsa to get some sound from an MSI mainboard
The above is using VT8233A chipset, the sound is using ALC650 chip and i have found in the user's guide , that direct sound is AC97.
My modules are :
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-o via82cxxx-audio
alias char-major=116 snd_cards_limit=1
options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1
alias snd-card-0 snd-via8233
options snd-via8233 snd_index=0 snd_id="via8233"
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-0ss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
Look, I do not know how currently your your modules.conf looks like and which is the name of all the important modules in /lib/modules/... dir.
WIth the message you have got you should look at the modules.conf file and find the lines with relations to 'snd'. I mean the lines not only with the phrase 'snd' placed directly in them but all which are chained with alias names.
I believe you'll find the extra parameter which is invalid.
For example line " alias snd-slot-o snd snd-via82cxxx-audio" is strange for me
1. snd-slot-o: 'o' or '0' (zero) ?
2. why there are so many tokens? the known for me 'alias' syntax 'alias xxxx yyy' consists only 3 tokens.
It looks like you created the alias for 'snd-slot-o' with 'snd snd-via82cxxx-audio' so the phrase 'snd-via82cxxx-audio' is this invalid parameter for 'snd' (?)
You probably have got the same mobo as mine.
Use 'cat /proc/pci | grep audio' to obtain the info about audio.
If you make sure that there is 8233 check you have the same modules as I have got. Next use my setting in modules.conf.
1. AFAIR using ALSA you need the kernel to be compiled with soundcore only without the other settings.
2. When you compile the ALSA you can use './configure --with-cards=via82xx'. This way your directory with sound modules will be reduced to the interesting ones.
