sound card configuration
I have an ATI SB4x0 audio card in my laptop and have been battling to get any sound out of it. Then I saw a solution in the Ubuntu forum. They reckon that it is a fault of ALSA that tries to install the incorrect driver for this card. This guy says that he fixed it []

by adding
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack

to the file

Now the problem is: This file does not exist in Slackware (not in Zenwalk anyway). So is there another script that could be modified to solve this?
In /etc/modprobe.d/ there is a sound.conf file but I am a bit nervous to sdit it especially as it says Do not edit this file!
Any sugestions will be very much welcomed. Cheers.

You can create your own configuration file under /etc/modprobe.d/ and add just that line to it.

Thanks adamk75.
So what I did was I saved a text file in /etc/modprobe.d called alsa-base with that single line in it. Does that sound good?

Might want to rename that file: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

"All files underneath the /etc/modprobe.d directory which end with the .conf extension specify those options as required."
-(module-init-tools-3.12, man modprobe.d)

Ahhh, good catch. Thanks.
