No sound in Conectiva 10 Beta 2

I dont have any sound since i installed beta 2. I had it working fine in beta 1 and the alsa mod is getting loaded at boot. The sound is turned up in the mixer. If anyone has any ideas id appreciate it. Sound is a make it or break it thing for me to keep using a distro even if just testing. I cant work without music.

Try 'alsaconf', it will try to get things going. The other problem might be your sound card module is not loaded. Maybe it was compiled in before and now it is out. Try 'lsmod' for that. If you know what it is, 'modprobe <module>' then see if your sound system will start.

Yah, I tried running alsaconf first thing when i didnt have sound. I ran a modprobe and loaded the module manually too when i still didnt have sound after alsaconf said it was loaded. So the module is definatly loading/loaded, but no sound. I couldnt get this version to install to my sata drive either for some reason, beta 1 worked on my sata and i had sound so im not sure why it would change in a more advanced beta.
Thanks for the suggestion though.
