After migrating to Kernel 2.6 my sound-module is not automatically started


I just got 2.6.4 set up so far, everthing seems to be working pretty good, but I don't know how to set up the module loading... (same goes for my network card, but I compiled it in to the kernel for now).
In it I think the important stuff is in:


options snd-emu10k1 enable=1 index=0
options snd cards_limit=1 major=116
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
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-0-11 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

what do i need to automatically load the emu10k1 module for my soundblaster? After
modprobe emu10k1 it works.

Im running suse 9.0, alsa 1.0.3 and modutils 0.9.15-pre4

Btw: What is the difference between
module-init-tools-0.9.15-pre4 and
module-init-tools-3.0-pre10 ?
I got a little confused about the version numbers (0.9 vs 3).

Thanks in advance:-)

I ran into this, but you do need the module-init tools installed, untar and configure. The reason my sound (same sound card) was not working was my ALSA was out of date, so I upgraded it. You could try compiling the sound into the kernel rather than as a module.

Also 2.6.x uses modprobe.conf, not modules.conf when you install module-init-tools, there is a shell script for generate-modprobe.conf, did you miss this step out by any chance?

From the README in the tarball...

3) If running for the first time, you might want to convert your old
modules.conf to modprobe.conf:

./generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf

hope this helps
