alias sound-card-0 i810_audio

Sound documentation saids to do the following:

alias snd-card-0 snd-<soundcard-name>
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

However, modules.conf has this unsilimar alias:

alias sound-card-0 i810_audio


Also modules.conf has the following statements:
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null2>&1 || :


pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null2>&1 || :

What do these statements do, and can they be removed.

I also think the the i810_audio driver is not the one I need, Is there a generic one, and is there any way of determining what sound hardware is in my system?

A lot of questions .... :)

1. --alias matter--
the 'sound-slot-0' is token looked for by soundcore module;
so it is the beginning of "alias chain"
next you can use any names so the lines like
alias sound-slot-0 abcd
alias abcd defg
alias defg xxxx
are OK but on condition that the chains is finished (here: with 'xxxx') with the name of your sound driver
look at /lib/modules/<kernel_version>/ directory and subdirectories (mine is just 'sound') for the file xxxx.o to check if you have the sound module and how it is called (you probably see a lot of modules, which one is yours -see below)

2.-- post-install & pre-remove ---
is the action (program) just after (or just before respectively) loading/removing the module;
is it important? generally- it depends on the command; this time I don't think so (try: 'aumix-minimal --help')

3. --proper audio module--
investigate results of : 'cat /proc/pci|grep audio'
