Problem with onboard sound intel8x0 on Asus a7n8x-e


Hello,

I am a newbie to linux, and I have Slackware 10.1 for about 10 days.
I have installed network, video card and X and I have some idea how things work in linux.

I also installed sound drivers for my sound cards but I have a problem.
I have an Asus a7n8x-e, nForce 2 chipset, motherboard with onboard sound.
I also have a CMI8738 PCI sound card with midi port which is important for me so I don't want to pull out that card in order to get things working.
I installed nvidia sound drivers from their website, and I think it went ok.
I have sound from CMI card (played mp3 music), but I don't have sound from onboard soundchip. nVidia installer found it to be intel8x0 sound chip.
Here is list of modules found by $ lsmod | grep snd.
Code:
snd-pcm-oss            36768   0  (unused)
snd-mixer-oss          12376   0  [snd-pcm-oss]
snd-intel8x0           18336   0
snd-ac97-codec         59292   0  [snd-intel8x0]
snd-cmipci             16704   2
gameport                1420   0  [snd-cmipci]
snd-pcm                54344   1  [snd-pcm-oss snd-intel8x0 snd-ac97-codec snd-cmipci]

snd-mpu401-uart         3136   0  [snd-cmipci]
snd-rawmidi            12480   0  [snd-mpu401-uart]

snd-page-alloc          4680   0  [snd-mixer-oss snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm snd-hwdepsnd-timer snd-rawmidi snd-seq-device snd]
soundcore               3396   8  [nvsound snd]
I want to have sound from onboard intel8x0 chip.
Can anyone help me.

slack has all sound muted by default, you need to run `alsamixer` and un-mute everything (m), then save the settings with `alsactl store`

Hello,

Thank you for your help but still it's not working.
I unmuted the sound on the onboard sound card.
I spent some more time trying to make this work and this is what I found out.

sound card No. 0 is CMI pci card
sound card No. 1 is onboard intel
This is my modules.conf file
Code:
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
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
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
It says that onboard card should be No. 0
I changed modules.conf as follows and it didn't change a thing.
Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
alias snd-card-1 snd-cmipci
alias sound-slot-1 snd-cmipci
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
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
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
Can anyone help me?
