Went through all the steps, no sound

Hey, I don't know where the problem is so I'm going to post it in many places. I just switched from gentoo to slackware recently, the install went way better, except I'm stuck on the sound. I've gone through all the different steps (compiling in the kernel, installing the alsa drivers seperatly, trying to check all the different mixers, checking /proc/asound/cards,)

So far it shows that my card is there (intel8x0) all the modules are loaded for it and alsamixer and kmix are both unmuted.

Is there anything else I can check, any other mixer programs that might be running, or artsd that may be screwing it up. This is very odd.

Thanks for the help
