Online Update: Where has my SOUND gone?


Please help or I need to wipe my drive and reinstall weandose!!
Hello people,
I have a Linux sytem for just 2 weeks now. SUSE 10.1 ..
I was so happy to get my soundcard working. But then I made an online update (the first since installation, new kernel). As well, I installed packman rpms, and suddenly even the video output is fine.
But where has my sound gone?
Here some info:
Quote:
Soundcard: Genius soundmaker 5.1 - CMI87 38/C3DX PC Audio Device

Quote:
# modinfo soundcore
filename: /lib/modules/2.6.16.21-0.25-smp/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko
description: Core sound module
author: Alan Cox
license: GPL
alias: char-major-14-*
vermagic: 2.6.16.21-0.25-smp SMP 586 REGPARM gcc-4.1
supported: yes
depends:
srcversion: DD426F1CCA2CC5F060F6F92
Quote:
YAST
"kernel module snd-fm801 for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters including invalid IO or IRQ parameters."
Quote:
KDE (configuration) gives me the following info:
(...)audio devices, synth devices, midi devices, mixer devices...
NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
I just know more about these lines, that they are not bohemian villages...
After posting a few threads and going through files and documentations, I am now quite dispaired and at my ends wit.
How can I enable this module, or how can I just "go back" to the old kernel, or does all this make no sense to you.
Please help or I need to wipe my drive and reinstall weandose!!
(you dont want that, do you?)

You might be making a bit of an assumption there. I never like ultimatums much.

Try removing the audio device (if its an onboard chip disable in the bios). Start up Linux, shut down Linux, reinstall/enable the sound device and reboot and see if that helps.

Glad I could be of help. But I think its less to do with making an assumption and more to do with the kind you just made.
