model=lenovo is for Lenovo 3000 C200, so it may not be the model you are looking for.

Have you try other model options as indicated in the list?

No problem... There's not enough left to fix on my machine. Or break and then fix I should say.

What seems strange is what you mention, the old alsa driver in /proc/asound/oss/sndstat. All I can say is just try reinstalling the new driver, or better yet, try installing 1.0.15.rc1. That is the version I had success upgrading with. Maybe they broke what they fixed in rc1 by the time they got to rc2. And don't forget to rerun alsaconf. Maybe, assuming you haven't already done so, that would fix the "Audio devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG."

Yeah and the Slackware 11.0 angle is also strange. Perhaps the new HAL stuff in Slack 12.0 is the issue. I don't know much about it except that it is some new model for detecting and communicating with hardware. I wonder if turning off HAL by doing "chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hald" would have any effect on your problem.

Sorry I'm not being more helpful here. Maybe someone who really knows Slackware or Alsa will post something that pinpoints the problem and the fix.

Sorry, I missed the part of the sndstat.

Did you really do a "make install" after finished compiling alsa-1.0.15rc1? For my system, it shows:

Code:
$> cat /proc/asound/oss/sndstat 
Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.15rc1 emulation code)
Kernel: Linux virgo 2.6.22.6 #4 SMP Fri Sep 7 21:30:49 SGT 2007 i686
Config options: 0

Installed drivers: 
Type 10: ALSA emulation

Card config: 
HDA Intel at 0xfe9fc000 irq 20

Audio devices:
0: STAC92xx Analog (DUPLEX)

Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG

Timers:
31: system timer

Mixers:
0: SigmaTel STAC9228

Ok, lets try last time : )

Hi Majkel,
I have lenovo 3000 n100 too.
I had same problem, but now it's solved.
I changed grub.conf like this:

...
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet acpi=ht
...

(just added "acpi=ht")
(I use Fedora Core 6.)

Now, my sound card works and I hope yours will ...

Hi there,

You're guys right about '/proc/asound/oss/sndstat'. I did ./configure, make, make install on Alsa 1.0.15.rc1.
It seems like I didn't uninstall 1.0.14.rc3 properly. Is there any way I can do it now ? I don't have the old Alsa directory any more...

I decided not to reinstall system because of this problem - that's simply the best way to learn linux... : )

Thanks Netkayit - I tried this trick but it didn't work in my case : )

Cheers
majkel

Hi again,
When the system loads I don't see even single line about ALSA.
I think I messed up with drivers.
What I did was:
mkdir /usr/src/alsa
here I copied (unpacked before)

- alsa-driver-1.0.15rc2
- alsa-lib-1.0.15rc2
- alsa-utils-1.0.15rc1

in each of the directories I typed:
./configure
make
make install (root)

then # alsaconf
then added
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack to /etc/modprobe.d/sound
(or: options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1 or options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=8)
everytime rebooted
and alsamixer

Still no sound !
WHAT ELSE ?

Thanks
majkel

As far as I know you shouldn't have to upgrade the utils and lib packages in order for the new drivers to work. In fact when I tried that it broke my system. So I would try doing a "make uninstall" from the place where you installed alsa-lib and alsa-utils, and then reinstall the slackware packages, for those two. Then see what happens on reboot.
