loading modules w/o rc.modules


I recently recompiled and decided to go with alsa sound (none of my games worked with ALSA, I tried all the tricks)

anyways to initalize sound i have to type "modprobe cs46xx" short of entering that string into my rc.modules is there any other way to get it to load automatically (as my other modular drivers do without the asssistance of rc.modules)

do I need to put something into my modules.conf? I looked at it and the syntax is confiusing, help would be appreciated.

I load a couple of modules from /etc/rc.d/rc.local. Is your sound card a Santa Cruz? I had to use mmap_valid=1 to get sound out of Return to Castle Wolfenstein with ALSA. Just a thought.

well, in quake3 my problem was that I couldnt use "mmap" so that sounds like a really good answer to me!!

but how and where did you add that string and/or command?

When I set up ALSA and edited my /etc/modules.conf file I put in the following line:

options mmap_valid=1
