dell inspiron 1000 + no sound + slackware 10.1

Heya guys, I'm having a few problems with getting my sound to work since I upgraded from slackware 9.1 to 10.1, with 9.1 it detected my sound card straight away and I ran alsaconf and alsamixer turned up the volume everything was fine. Things are abit weird now though, The sound appears to play in xmms although on start up I get

Code: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've also tried playing an avi in xine which plays with no sound aswell.

So far I've
1) ran alsaconfig
2) ran alsamixer
3) umuted the volume using the up arrows
4) ran alsactl store
which found my card apparently as
"intel8x0 Silicon Intergrated Systems [SiS] Sound Controller (rev a0)".

which didn't seem to make any difference.

the I
5) downloaded the latest alsa-driver ./configure'd and did make && make install on it, which completed successful.
6) re ran alsaconfig, same card detected.
7) re ran alsamixer to check volume, which was the same as before.

all with no luck, so I tried to change the settings in xmms from the Oss driver to the alsa output plugin and tried to replay the mp3, still with no luck

lspci reports
00:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] Sound Controller (rev a0)
i'm not exactly 100% sure what the sound card is, but all I know is, I had no problems with a fresh install of slackware 9.1.

if anyone can help even get slightly closer to fixing this problem, I will be grateful,

When you did the ./configure for the alsa-driver, did you specify a specific card?

For instance, I also use the intel8x0 driver, so my 'configure' line looks like this ...

$./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 --with-sequencer=yes

Also, after rebooting, is the snd-intel8x0 module loaded into the kernel? You may need to force it to load by placing the appropriate 'modprobe' commands inside of /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
