Lenovo W530 sound in Slackware 14

I am unable to get sound working in Slackware 14 on my Lenovo W530.

The audio device is:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Panther Point High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 21f6
        Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
cat /proc/asound/card*/codec* |grep codec gives me:

Codec: Realtek ALC269VC
I have tried to create a file in /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf with the content:

options snd-hda-intel model=auto
I have the kernel modules loaded:

lsmod |grep snd
snd_seq_dummy           1455  0 
snd_seq_oss            29048  0 
snd_seq_midi_event      5620  1 snd_seq_oss
snd_seq                51265  5 snd_seq_midi_event,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_dummy
snd_seq_device          5228  3 snd_seq,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_dummy
snd_pcm_oss            39183  0 
snd_mixer_oss          15404  1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_hda_codec_realtek   195474  1 
snd_hda_intel          23267  0 
snd_hda_codec          81925  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec_realtek
snd_hwdep               6324  1 snd_hda_codec
snd_pcm                72864  3 snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss
snd_page_alloc          7081  2 snd_pcm,snd_hda_intel
snd_timer              18798  2 snd_pcm,snd_seq
snd                    57796  12 snd_timer,snd_pcm,snd_hwdep,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec_realtek,thinkpad_acpi,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm_oss,snd_seq_device,snd_seq,snd_seq_oss
soundcore               5474  1 snd
In conclusion I have the kernel modules loaded, and it should work, however I have no sound. I get errors from audio players such as (from Audacious): "ALSA error: No suitable mixer element found.".
