Sound stopped working right...
I just did a fresh install of slack 11. At first setup recognized both my sound cards (one is a via82XX and the other is a Philips that uses the c-media driver). The Philips is the preferred card. Right after install it worked fine that card. I added all my multimedia stuff (flash and m-player) and the sound still worked properly. Now after a reboot neither sound card seems to work. I have ran alsaconf and set it up use the c-media card 4 times. I went and made sure that the right module is being loaded. See below:
justin@home:/etc$ cat modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci
alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci
Now, I try to run alsamixer after making sure that the c-media card is the one being loaded. Everytime I bring up alsamixer it says that it using the via card. I have tried stop and restarting rc.alsa, no luck. How do I alsa to disregard the via card and use the c-media one. It worked earlier today with my debian install. I have been trying to turn off the integrated via card with no luck finding it in the BIOS. Can you help me to get the c-media card working? Thanks.
