Do I need to recompile the kernel to get the sound modules? Please note that alsa was selected to be compiled as modules <M>.
The output of lsmod has no sound modules.
lspci has the following line:
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 04)
alsaconf gives the following error messages:
No Supported PnP or PCI car found
No legacy drivers available
To compile the new kernel I have used Patrick's config file for kernel-188.8.131.52 and followed acidjuice's post under "LinuxAnswers" titled "Compiling kernel 2.6.10 on Slackware 10.1"
