Angry Sound not working - sis 7012 chipset - sony laptop

Seems like this is a common problem - I have a sony Vaio GRT270 with the sis 7012 chipset for sound . Tried installing ALAS but lock up my machine when I try to play mp3 in XMMS. Help. Email me for dmesg and lsmod outputs. I have core 1.

I am offering a reward for the first person to help me solve the problem!
Is the lockup an IRQ confilct perhaps? Help as I want to start using this beast !

compile the kernel WITHOUT alsa, remove alsa from your comptuter, when compiling choose OSS intel_810 driver as a module, compile in all ACPI options(can't hurt, and its nessesary), compile the kernel, when the computer start up modprobe intel_810 driver i believe(as root), try finding the intel*.ko find in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ and thats the name.

And thats how i solved my problem

PS. to get sound when your computer starts up add "/sbin/modprobe intel810drivername" to /rc.local in the /etc/rc.d directory somewhere

"/usr/sbin/lsof /dev/dsp" if the soundcard is blocked

I ALSO add a wrapper to xmms to stop KDE sound
1)rename /usr/local/bin/xmms to xmms.real
2)create a a+x script called xmms in the same place which should say
killall artsd #this constanly blocks the sound card, its just annoying
exec /usr/local/bin/xmms

FIxed !!

Ok so perhaps this is cheating but I've fixed the sound problem, I dirched core 1 and used Core 2 with the 2.6 kernel and I added the following to my modprobe.conf file. (note the lines that I commented out snd-intel8x0 etc) - Now if I could just adjust the screen brightness on my Vaio!

alias eth0 sis900

include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist
#alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
#install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
#remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 ohci-hcd
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394

#### add this below to get sound workng !!
##### you might have to comment out some shite above
###### that refers to other sound modules
options i810_audio clocking=48000
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe

alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

install snd-card-0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-card-0 && { /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }
