Sound stopped working right...

I just did a fresh install of slack 11. At first setup recognized both my sound cards (one is a via82XX and the other is a Philips that uses the c-media driver). The Philips is the preferred card. Right after install it worked fine that card. I added all my multimedia stuff (flash and m-player) and the sound still worked properly. Now after a reboot neither sound card seems to work. I have ran alsaconf and set it up use the c-media card 4 times. I went and made sure that the right module is being loaded. See below:

justin@home:/etc$ cat modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci
alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci

Now, I try to run alsamixer after making sure that the c-media card is the one being loaded. Everytime I bring up alsamixer it says that it using the via card. I have tried stop and restarting rc.alsa, no luck. How do I alsa to disregard the via card and use the c-media one. It worked earlier today with my debian install. I have been trying to turn off the integrated via card with no luck finding it in the BIOS. Can you help me to get the c-media card working? Thanks.

You can add the other card's module to hotplug's or udev's blacklist. Add the name of the module to the file


for hotplug, or to


for udev.
