Siome people are having alsa problems with 64bit gentoo, especially with VIA cards.
I had it also, I figured out the way to "just work"

1st, delete all leftovers from alsa.
unmerge all alsa-driver alsa-utils alsa-headers stuff.


then,
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make menuconfig
under Device Drivers -> Sound -> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture --->
have it like this
Code:

<*> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture                                             
<*> Sequencer support                                                             
<*>   Sequencer dummy client                                                             
<*> OSS Mixer API                                                                       
 <*> OSS PCM (digital audio) API                                                           
[*] OSS Sequencer API                                                                     
<*> Emulation for 32-bit applications                                           
 <*> RTC Timer support                                                               
 [*] Verbose printk 


then under PCI devices, choose your card, ENABLE it, not as modules.


then
make && make modules_install
to compile it,
copy bzimage and System map to /boot as usual.


after reboot,
emerge alsa-utils alsa-lib alsa-headers

then, /etc/init.d/alsasound start
it will not try to load modules but if u have ur sound card compiled it should work.

Hi man I was wondering if you could help me out. I am tring to configure my sound with alsa but no luck, i followed your steps excepto for
<*> Emulation for 32-bit applications
because i coudn't find that, (i hope that doesn't make the difrence) anyway i have no sound.
I tried googleing for the answer but no luck. the strange thing is that my sound card seems detected when i type dmesg
take a look:

Via 686a/8233/8235 audio driver 1.9.1-ac4-2.5
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:11.5[C] -> GSI 22 (level, low) -> IRQ 193
PCI: Via IRQ fixup for 0000:00:11.5, from 5 to 1
via82cxxx: Six channel audio available
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:11.5 to 64
ac97_codec: AC97 codec, id: ALG144 (Unknown)
via82cxxx: Codec rate locked at 48Khz
via82cxxx: board #1 at 0xE800, IRQ 193
Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 1.01, 18:39:26 Jul 21 2005
cmpci: version $Revision: 6.82 $ time 18:39:27 Jul 21 2005
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.9rc2 (Thu Mar 24 10:33:39 2005 UTC).
ALSA sound/core/seq/oss/seq_oss.c:235: can't register device seq
ALSA device list:
No soundcards found.
oprofile: using NMI interrupt.
NET: Registered protocol family 2

No i dont get it maybe i am compiling the wrong driver but there two drivers that say via under pci and y marked them with a * i also marked C-Media but no luck. Any ideas? thanks

Using Kernel-image-2.6.12-r4
