I had the same problem on a Gateway Solo 5150 laptop running Debian Etch. My solution was to set the proper parameters in the /etc/modprobe.d/sound file. Here's my parameters:

alias snd-card-0 snd-es18xx
options snd-es18xx index=0 isapnp=0 port=0x240 dma1=1 dma2=3 irq=5

It was also necessary to start the driver with the command:

modprobe snd-es18xx

Or to add the following to /etc/modules file:


Once the error message is gone, you may also need to set the volume levels with the amixer command, such as:

amixer set Master 63
amixer set PCM 63

Hope this helps!
