Well, I said a couple days without power... Never in my wildest imagination did I think I would not have any power for 8 (yes 8) days. Anyway, I now have power, give me a little while to catch up on the stuff thats been going on online over the past 8 days. I did see something in my inbox about successful alsa configuration on the 2.6 kernel (since I asked for a working example of a "etc/modprobe.conf" file on the Linux-audio-users list).

Wow, 8 days. Thats brutal. Can't always be perfect in paradise.

I also read a succsful ALSA configuration/troubleshooting and am in the process of looking through it. The problem sounds (poor choice of words, "looks" would have been more appropriate considering i can't hear anything) exactly like mine. I'll read up on it and see if i can understand it........if not I hope someone here can translate the linux jabber into newbee.

Here is the reply I recieved from the Linux-audio-users mailing list:

Quoting Takashi from http://tinyurl.com/5gol6 :

2.6 kernels - it s easy!

Only a single line to /etc/modprobe.conf

alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0

For auto-loading of OSS emulation, another line

alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0

Ciao
-- Frank Barknecht _ ______footils.org__

Of course you will need to change the "snd-intel8x0" to the name of your alsa audio card driver (snd-cmipci). Remember, all alsa drivers will start with "snd", so if you see something related to audio in your lsmod output that doesn't start with "snd" it probably shouldn't be there (*except for "soundcore"*). Hope this helps.
I also agree with jomen about commenting out the lines in your etc/modprobe.conf file that pertain to trident. They just don't look like they belong there. You should also try commenting out the lines:

install snd-cmipci /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-cmipci && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-cmipci { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-cmipci

Those lines look like they are pointing to "/dev/null" which would keep your sound from working. Just add the # sign in front of both of those lines and when your computer reads that file it will ignore those lines. If that doesn't work you can remove the # sign. Also make sure you reboot after changing the file, it might not be necessary but it doesn't hurt. I have had times when rebooting solved frustrating problems.

Great! That's real good to hear. This thread will probably help others too with the same problem.
