What sound card do you have installed in your machine?

What chipset does it have?

If it's an on-board audio chipset, are there BIOS settings for it?

(BTW, if you have access to some used sound cards hanging around, you could always just shut down, replace the card, reboot, and see if gets recognized -- could save you time anyway.)

I have the same problem. Almost.

I don't know if this helps but similar problems can make one draw some conclusions even if they don't solve the problem..

I have the following cards in my system:
* Cmedia CM8738 (C-Media) card (its actually a "Hercules Muse XL")
* CS4624 (Cirrus Logic 46xx) card (its actually a "Hercules GTXP 7.1")

This problem is with the 2.6.11 kernel alsa-drivers (1.0.8)
When all modules are loaded and I run lsmod I get all the modules ok and when I run alsaconf it identifies both cards but when the configuration is updated in modprobe.conf (Slackware) then only my C-Media card works. It shows up when I run a "cat /proc/asound/cards" but my other card doesnt work and it does not show up in the /proc/asound/cards.

I suspect that the drivers from Alsa-project isn't as good as I want them to be.

I don't know if this is the case with your configuration. The funny thing is that the Alsa-drivers that came with the 2.4.29 kernel makes my CS4624 card work, but this problem has been since I began to use kernel 2.6.11.

Maybe, I just say maybe it could work with older alsa-stuff?.. or other kernel?

i am using

[root@localhost 2.4.21-20.EL]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.21-20.EL #1 Wed Aug 18 20:58:25 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux[root@localhost 2.4.21-20.EL]# cd etc
-bash: cd: etc: No such file or directory
[root@localhost 2.4.21-20.EL]# cd /etc

[root@localhost etc]# more modules.conf
alias scsi_hostadapter ata_piix
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd
alias eth0 sk98lin
[root@localhost etc]#

My modules.conf only shows the above. Is that normal? If not what should be my next step to solve this?

[root@localhost alsa-utils-1.0.5]# modprobe snd-azx
/lib/modules/2.4.21-20.EL/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: unresolved symbol schedule_work
/lib/modules/2.4.21-20.EL/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-20.EL/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o failed
