Sorry guys no can do. There's something very peculiar. You know I compile, recompile and then recompile ALL alsa's version 1.0.3 with exactly the same settings. Sometimes they compile fine, sometimes they don't. I don't get it. I reinstalled Slackware, and now I can hear sound in 2.4.22. But there are still problems in 2.6.4. I first tried compiling support for my soundcard as a module, but when I modprobe it, it gives so many errors. I did dmesg and it didn't recognize any of the modules. When I build it directly into the kernel, I can't hear sound either. I can't install alsa 1.0.3 and I can't install alsa from Slackware CD, maybe because of the built-in alsa in the kernel. Anyway, I'm totally stuck.

Don't use the drivers that comes with the kernel. I never got that working.
I remember to do a "make clean" before recompiling if you have difficulties.

You could also try alsa 1.0.2 to see if it works then.

Thnx guys, I finally got my sound working. I just installed alsa 1.0.4. Now for my modem. Can anybody help with that. It's a US Robotics 56k WinModem PCI. lsmod does detect my modem, but I can't use it. When I do query modem in kppp, it says modem ready, sending AT1 and then it displays a dialog with a lot of AT1s but nothing in the controls next to them. And one more thing. I reinsalled slackware to see if there was some problem with my slackware installation. Now, when I plug in my USB Flash Disk, it is detected as hda2, whereas, previously it was always detected as sda4. As such, I can't mount it either, because doing so generates an error that file system type is not recognised. Anybody help with that?
