Sound module i810_audio not loading on startup

Hi I just can't get this module to load on startup. When I do 'modprobe i810_audio' normally it pulls in the deps (soundcore and ac97_codec) and loads no probs.

However with

probe i810_audio


probeall i810_audio soundcore ac97_codec


alias sound-slot-0 soundcore
alias sound-slot-1 ac97_codec
alias sound-slot-2 i810_audio

in /etc/modules.conf I get error messages.

Does anyone know how I can get this to work during startup when a simple command works fine from the command line?

In your modules.conf file simply put:

/sbin/modprobe i810_audio

Not sure why your trying probe or probeall? Where did you get those commands from?

I made the mistake of looking at the man pages

Unfortunately I get an "invalid line" where I put that in...

All the other modules are just given aliases, i'm not sure if that loads them in as well...

Heres whats in it:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias usb-controller usb-ohci

alias char-major-195 nvidia

# modem-related:
alias char-major-108  ppp_generic
alias /dev/ppp ppp_generic
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp_async
alias tty-ldisc-13 n_hdlc
alias tty-ldisc-14 ppp_synctty
alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
Also removing unused modules with rmmod -a or modprobe -r doesn't seem to work. Don't know if thats got anything to with it.

since you are using redhat, you can use their own configuration tool:
redhat-config-sound (or something like that)
