I810 audio chipset and ALSA


I'm fighting to have my i810 audio chip working. I saw and read carefully some others threads about this problem. But fact is that sound worked yesterday, when i finished a fresh compil and install of alsa.

The only stuff i didn't did is to edit modules.conf. I loaded modules manually, and this worked.

This morning, sound doesn't work

# modprobe snd-intel8x0
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/sound/snd-intel8x0.o: insmod snd-intel8x0 failed

I'm a bit lost... I don't undestand why it worked yesterday and not today. Moreover, alsa-project.org seems to be down at the moment (i have a DNS error)

Any help appreciated

It could be that you have also got the OSS drivers compiled in or loaded as modules. What does lsmod show?

You need to get rid of the OSS drivers. To do this, go to your /etc/modules.conf and comment out the same lines I have at the bottom. Then you need to add the alsa and other non-commented sound lines if you havent already. I have the same card and heres how my /etc/modules.conf looks...

alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
options 3c501 irq=6
alias eth0 bcm4400
options bcm4400 irq=3
options ide-cd dma=0
#alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
#post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
#pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

#Alsa Portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0

#module options here
#option enable int array = 1
#option ac97_clock int array = 0

#OSS
#alias char-major-14 soundcore

# Save/restore mixer settings

post-install snd-card-0 /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove snd-card-0 /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
#card #1
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
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-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

alias char-major-195 nvidia
