I just recently installed Slackware on my Dads Dell Inspiron 1501 and I wanted to compile a kernel for it. The short is all worked fine and everything went through except for a sound issue that emerged.
When I run aslaconf and go through the steps the sound works, however, when ever I reboot I get the error below and sound does not work. If I re-run alsaconf it works agian. By this I hope you see the loop I am in.
I am out of ideas and places to look, any help would be great!!
