Hi again ...

did you by any chance not install ALSA? :)

I just couldn't stop thinking about this :}
and looked in the sources ... there's
a reference to these two modules in
sound_core.c that to me seems to be
ALSA related ;)

lol I'm sorry that I caused you to lose sleep. I just forgot about it since it wasn't a pressing issue. Please don't worry over my stupid problems. Anyway I believe I had to install ALSA when I installed mplayer. whereis alsa returns nothing but here is locate alsa's results:

[root@vincentmerlino root]# locate alsa

Try to fire up a browser and install it. I can't tell by looking at your locate whether it's installed or not, but hey, it's worth a shot to fix that. Head over to and find your soundcard, follow the instructions for install for it. You won't lose anything, and maybe fix your problem and find out how cool ALSA is in the process

Okay folks I'm bringing this thread back from the dead just to give it some closure. I was so fed up with getting these error messages in my log files that I wen't on a mission tonight and found out how to get rid of these. Here is the new /etc/modules.conf file. Notice the new lines I have added:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 eepro100
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
options ide-cd dma=1
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
alias sound-slot-1 off
alias sound-service-1-3 off
alias sound-service-0-1 off
alias sound-service-1-0 off

After I added those last four lines I did:


and the error messages haven't come back yet. Woohooooo Oh yeah and I still have sound so thats a plus.
