after a fresh install of slackware 10.1 which comes with alsa installed i did the following:
1. alsaconf builds database
2. alsaconf shows 'intel8x0 Intel Corp. 82801DB (ICH4) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)
3. then it configures snd-intel8x0
4. and writes everything off to /etc/modules.conf
5. alsaconf then says it will run alsasound init script then use amixer to raise volume
after all this i run alsamixer to make sure all master and pcm is un-muted and then i run 'alsactl store' which leads to slackware running 'alsactl restore' at each boot time.
even after all this slackware 10.1 will not emit any sound from it's speakers!
i'm taking a wild guess here but maybe it has something to do with alsasound? a search for alsasound in my linux box results in nothing .. right after this post i will download alsasound and install it maybe that will do the trick?
anyone else here have the same problem or was successful in getting the sound to with in slackware with the same soundcard??
thanks a million - btw i know this same problem has been posted before but as i already mentioned alsaconf, alsactl store, alsamixer DID NOT do the trick.
