Sound not working on fresh boot


I'm running Fedora 4 and have the following problem:

When I boot the system I haven't got any sound (and the mixer settings are muted) I can turn up the mixer settings but not sound yet either. Running Alsaconf to detect my soundcard (an onboard intel sound processor) then causes the sounds to work.
But on the next reboot the same thing again. I run alsactl store and the same thing still happens.

This has only started happening since I updated the alsa software via YUM, and I am at a loss as to why the settings aren't kept. Alsaconf does write lines to modules.conf, but it seems to make little difference.

I'm not at my machine so posts of file contents etc will have to wait until tonite

TIA

Have you got any further? If not, what chipset is the on-board sound and which module is alsaconf loading for you? After a reboot, is the module listed as being loaded when running lsmod, and if not, does /etc/modules (or wherever under FC4) show the module being defined?

Thank you for the reply. No progress yet.. I will post the requested details later tonite.

As far as I can tell, there is an entry in modules.conf which (as comments indicate) have been created by alsaconf.

As I said, more info later

ok, here's the info:

the file etc/modprobe.conf contains:
Code:
alias eth0 8139too
alias scsi_hostadapter ata_piix
#alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --#ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias char-major-195* nvidia
options nvidia NVreg_ModifyDeviceFiles=0

# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF version 1.0.9a ---
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
Here I did comment out the lines about the snd modules not inside the alsaconf lines, no difference either...

The alsaconf sound card detected is Intel8x0 - Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller

lsmod gives
