Arrow soundcraft II: the battle continues...


so this is how it goes...
i have the famous P4PE (similar to P800E) chipset asus mbo with onboar soundcard (Ac'97; intel8x0).
and, of course, no sound...
so the solution would be: uninstall all the sound drivers, download new ones (including libreries and utilities) and install them; open alsamixer and unmute surround. quite simple, no?
BUT, i installed new alsa drivers without deleting old ones - which probably created some conflics...what i did after was delete every file having to do something with alsa (only sound, not balsa or similar) and reinstalled new drivers
./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install

new libreries
./configure;make;make install

and utils
./configure;make;make install

everything went well until
modprobe snd-intel8x0;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

it FAILED.don't know why, could use some help. oh, another thing: before ther was no alsamixer command, now there is (but:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device). and there's no snd device file...
what should i do NOW?
thanx guys(and girls, if there are...)

another guy had a similiar issue - he had to type the path to the command to do a modprobe - type:
whereis modprobe
and
whereis lsmod

~ here check these threads out - these are all alsa related:

i've checked them out: half our with my posts and the other half is so messy i didn't understand anything.
i did whereis modprobe
modprobe: /sbin/modprobe.old /sbin/modprobe /usr/share/man/man8/modprobe.8.bz2
i didn't like it very much - what is old doing here?
i als did whereis lsmod
lsmod: /sbin/lsmod.old /sbin/lsmod /usr/share/man/man8/lsmod.8.bz2
that's bad, right?
pleas, if you could write down what sohuld i do, it'd really be great...thanx...

it is unusual that it's a ".old" mine shows:
mossy]$ whereis modprobe
modprobe: /sbin/modprobe /usr/share/man/man8/modprobe.8.gz

type: lsmod
Paste the results here.

what was the error message when you typed:
modprobe snd-intel8x0;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

try typing:

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

PS: go into the /usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.9.6 [*or whatever version you have] directory and type:
./snddevices
This should allow you to use alsamixer and stop the function snd_ctl_open failed error.
