alsamixer - no mixer elems found
After going back to base 9.1 my sound worked. Then I upgaded alsa to 0.9.8 and the kernel to 2.4.26 and the module in /etc/modules.conf failed to insmod.
Upgraded the 4 alsa files to 1.0.4 from current, cleaned modules.conf and ran alsaconf again to detect the snd-intel8x0 sound card.
Then running alsamixer I get "no mixer elems found"
