Question no sound - alsa 0.9.7


I found that the latest alsa drivers do cover my sound. I'm using on-board sound from my ASUS p4s800 motherboard; it uses the SiS7012 chipset.

I followed all the alsa-project readme file instructions up to the "Autoloading OSS/free emulation" portion as the first line there said that I was finished with the configuration for ALSA native devices, and things started to get rather advanced from there (midi configuration and such things I'm not using.)

Quote:
[root@x1-6-00-0c-6e-56-74-7b root]# cat /proc/modules.conf
probeall scsi_hostadapter advansys ide-scsi
alias eth0 sis900
#above snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm-oss
#alias sound-slot-0 ali5455
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia

#ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
#module options should go here

#OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1

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
above snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm-oss
I placed the # in the first section when I edited the file to add the alsa information. Sound wasn't working then either, I guessed that those were all sound inserts.

When I reboot, I still do not have sound, and I get the error on startup:

Where should I go from here to "create/find" module snd-0, or if something is not "pointing" to the right place, what do I need to edit to load the proper module?

what does lsmod produce??

[edit]

and have you searched this forum for alsa related threads?
there have been plenty of them over the last week.

you may find the fix in one of the suggestions in those threads.

hehe... hey, that "search the forum" is my line Well, now that I'm a nix newbie, I suppose I'm hitting the same "general" problems..... Yup, I've been looking at a bunch of threads, but I don't see anyone referencing the "can't locate module" error...

As part of the alsa configuration, I entered:

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

All ran without error.

Your modules are not loaded - this came up with another guy yesterday or the day before.

In the alsa modprobe instructions for your driver it should be something like -
modprobe snd-intel8x0; snd-pcm-oss etc etc - one long list -

when they are loaded lsmod will show them - ASLA modules begin with snd -
You should remove your original sound modules first tho.
modprobe -R

here is a bunch of threads that came up regarding "alsa modules"

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...der=descending

if none of those give you any ideas [such as are you root when modprobing] then let me know.

Thanks for the search link, I've been searching dependand in alsa along with kde and sis7012 I'm still looking through that list now...

The first time I configured the drivers, I had no problem when I ran modprobe, This time when I ran the modprobe line I recived:

When I run modprobe -r, should I then redo the install? (make the drivers, lis and utils as before on the original install?)

no need to reinstall - we are just inserting the modules into the kernel - just remove the sd_mod 11548 0 [if this is your original sound module i presume it is because of "sd" but other than that I am not sure - IF YOU CANNOT FIND OUT FOR SURE JUST LEAVE IT].

when you have no sound modules [please try to verify if this sd_mod 11548 0 is a sound module] then try to modprobe the alsa modules again.
if that fails try:
/sbin/modprobe snd-your module list

sd_mod seems to be related to my scsi card.

Along those lines, I won't be removing any modules, correct?

When you say run /sbin/modprobe snd-'your module list' do you mean the same alsa modprobe list I've been typing? If so, that returns the same error as running without /sbin/

hmm not sure - could be your newer kernel version
I have linux-2.4.20-20.9 on mine.
Did you upgrade the kernel yourself or did the cd installation come that way?
If you upgraded it then when you reboot - select the previous kernel from the boot menu and try to get alsa working on that - that should tell you.

First: If you have a P4 with hyperthreading (ht) make sure that the kernel supports this. I suggest you to use a 2.6.x-kernel because ht-support of a 2.4-kernel is poor.

Second: Turn off the plug-and-play option in your BIOS.

Then it should work.
