howto edit etc/hotplug/blacklist???

got a problem with a broken sound card -

i can boot with linux nohotplug - that way it works - otherwise the pc crashes when hotplug begins

now i read about that i somehow can add things to /etc/hotplug/blacklist

so no my question is - what do i have to do to add my soundcard to the blacklist.

i got some information that i can view the blacklist with vi etc/hotplug/blacklist

and some information about the soundcard with lspci (says: ESS-Technology Es1983S Maestro-3i PCI Audio Accelerator(rev10) )

until now i wasnt able to find out what i have to type to add the soundcard to that blacklist and then save the list.

would be great if someone could write down the commands - cause im still new with linux.

I think the module for your soundcard is: snd-es1938


su -
pico /etc/hotplug/blacklist
Scroll down to the bottom

Type in

Save with Ctrl+O + Enter, and then close with Ctrl+X

Then try to reboot.
