Just compiled a custom kernel no sound.

I configured alsa for my sound card to be built into the kernel but there is no sound. I heard there may be a problem with this. Can someone help me with this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Help No Sound for long time now!

Hey, I have exactly same problem... my soundcard does load everytime when i start up my computer, because I build it into my kernel... when I run alsaconf I get this message:

No supported PnP or PCI card found.
Would you like to probe legacy ISA sound cards/chips??

when I say yes it doesn't find any and just stops... I am using SiS 7012 soundcard(as I have a laptop)...

and will it help if I load sound as a module?? cause what differents will it make...

any help will be preciated thanks!

I had trouble with this myself. I believe I fixed it by building my soundcard driver as a module and then alsaconf was able to find it. You might give this a try.

Thank's for advice... But for the moment what I did was downloaded .config from Knoppix and compiled it, and it works perfectly cool.
