Exclamation intel 810 on kernel 2.4.26

hi all

I just installed slack 10, i run alsaconf and it detects the soundcard, but when i run alsamixer to unmute the sound, it appears the following message:

"No mixer elems found"

sound card:
intel 810 based
kernel: 2.4.26
slackware: 10 (fresh install)
laptop: Acer TM 660

thanks in advance

I have had the exact same trouble. So I now, as a default, head over to the Alsa Project website and download the latest source and install it as per the instructions on the site. All then works fine.

Use OSS modules instead, it seems to work better with the Intel architecture in my experiences, especially when dealing with the i810 chipset.

A typical suggestion I've heard is to first recompile the kernel with a more complete set of options. I think the i810 has its own subdirectories in "make menuconfig." Since ALSA is compiled into the kernel now, maybe your problem is there.

Another thing that can be done is add the following to the bottom of the "/etc/hotplug/blacklist" file:


This stops the Intel integrated modem driver from loading (by default it seems to load first, thus taking the place of the first sound card). If you need the modem, you can load it after boot using modprobe. After a reboot, sound will work perfectly.

The best advice I've received on this is to get a bargain Sound Blaster and your problems should be over. I've had nothing but minor issues since I followed that advice.
