How do I disable one of two sound cards?


I've had this problem for a while: my onboard sound card is marked "disabled" in the BIOS, but it keeps being detected and configured by most of the Linux distros I have tried recently. Even worse: it is always configured as the default one, and I don't like this card. I want to use my PCI card.

I used to have them coexist peacefully in Slack 12, but now I moved to Slack 12.1 and I don't know what to do. I don't know how to blacklist a module and I wish I could enable the PCI card right now without having to reboot. Open Suse 11 does that by means of its control panel, but I have no idea how to do that in Slackware.

What can I do? What are my options?

Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/sound file like in this example bellow:
Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd-ca0106
alias sound-slot-0 snd-ca0106
alias snd-card-1 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-1 snd-intel8x0
options snd-ca0106 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=1
It will not disable the onboard sound card, but will set the order: PCI sound card, onboard sound card.

You can also disable the onboard one by blacklisting the card's module in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. To blacklist a module, add the following line:
Code:
blacklist modulename
You can find the name of your module by looking through `lsmod` ouput.

Ok, guys. The indexing trick worked. I didn't even have to blacklist anything.

I am quite disappointed though because the sound is inferior to that of Slack 12. I noticed I have fewer controls in kmix now, and the treble/bass sliders have no effect. :-(

In that case, you may need to force a different model name or option in /etc/modprobe.d/sound

Post your current /etc/modprobe.d/sound file and the output of `lspci -vv` and `lsmod` (use the [_CODE] and [_/CODE] tags without the _ to format the output better). Information on the possible options are located in /usr/src/linux-2.6.24.5/Documentation/sound/alsa/ALSA-Configuration.txt. It is basically trial and error after that point (but you can narrow down the possibilities based on the chipset). This thread may help. The information in that thread is specific to the snd-hda-intel module (and a specific chipset that uses that module), however the general principles should apply to all sound modules.

Yes, I followed your instructions on alsaconf and alsamix and I guess it works now. Thanks! Sound is not so good yet, but I guess the problem now is finding my old config sweet spots. I still have Slack 12 in another disk that is suspected of impending physical failure. Do you know where those adjustments are so I could copy them over?


I am posting the info anyway, it doesn't hurt:

Yes, it does sound better. Thanks! :-)

I still would like to know how to rescue my old config from Slack 12.0 though.

I just tried to use Skype for the first time since I installed Slackware 12.1 and only then I discovered that my microphone is not working. People can hear me, but *extremely* low, and there seems to be an also low but annoying hum. I tried tweaking all the possible knobs in kmix or alsamix and had no success. Does anyone what can be done to correct this?
