Unhappy SiS 7018 sound card problem


I've been having some trouble with my sound card (SiS 7018). When booting I get many
errors about ac97_codec and the sound driver like so (from dmesg):
Trident 4DWave PCI soundcard not found or device busy
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 00:01.4
PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 00:01.6
PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 00:0c.1
ALSA ../../alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c:1625: AC'97 0:0 does not respond_-_RESET
later when using 'modprobe trident' I get no errors and I get this (in dmesg):
Trident 4DWave/SiS 7018/ALi 5451,Tvia CyberPro 5050 PCI Audio,
version 0.14.10h, 18:39:29 Sep__2_2003_PCI:_Found_IRQ_5_for_device_00:01.4
PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 00:01.6
PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 00:0c.1
trident: SiS 7018 PCI Audio found at IO 0x1000, IRQ 5 ac97_codec: AC97
codec, id:__(Unknown)_ac97_codec:_AC97__codec,_id:__(Unknown)

I also checked to see if i'm not on mute in kmix. However, trying to get
sound (in a program like xmms) results in no sound at all (even when
changing from ALSA to aRts). I saw that ALSA supports this card, so what
am I doing wrong? You guys need more information?

something very weird is happening. I tried 'alsaconf' and it detected my exact
card correctly, it says that it will configure it, ...., and it tells me it was successful.
Then when finishing I get this message:

Loading driver...
ALSA warning:  No mixer settings found in /etc/asound.state.
  Sound may be muted.  Use 'alsamixer' to unmute your sound card,
  and then 'alsactl store' to save the default ALSA mixer settings
  to be loaded at boot.
Loading OSS compatibility modules for ALSA.
Setting default volumes...
Saving the mixer setup used for this in /etc/asound.state.
/usr/sbin/alsactl: save_state:1061: No soundcards found...
What does it mean 'No soundcards found...' ? It just told that it detected the
sound card.

I'm using Slack distro.

thank you.
