If you're getting messages on bootup using Alsa that annoy you like the ones below:
Quote:
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-card-1
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-card-2
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-card-3
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-card-4
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-card-5

You can get rid of them by editing /etc/modules.d/alsa and adding this line to the bottom:
Quote:
options snd snd_cards_limit=1

Then run update-modules as root and you're all set. -Dan

# Alsa 0.9.X kernel modules' configuration file.
# $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/media-sound/alsa-driver/files/alsa-modules.$

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore

Thats the way the instructions say to make the file appear:

Check the ALSA portion at the top of the file. By adding this line you can specify the max number of soundcards you have (generally, just one).

Code listing 2.5: At the top of /etc/modules.d/alsa

# Alsa 0.9.X kernel modules' configuration file.
# $Header: /home/cvsroot/gentoo-src/gentoo-web/xml/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml,v 1.4 2002/11/01 02:40:47 zhen Exp $

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore

##
## IMPORTANT:

Thats what I did. Still had error. Now are you saying to add the "options snd snd_major=116 snd_cards_limit=1" AGAIN to the bottom of this file? :?:

Code:
alias snd-card-?? off
in /etc/modules.d/alsa then update-modules.

Thought this fixed things with my system,

A slightly simpler way is to change
Code:
options snd snd_cards_limit=1
to
Code:
options snd cards_limit=1
and then run update-modules. It mentions that they removed the "snd_" in the ALSA docs somewhere.

I don't actually have the line written like you have. At the top of /etc/modules.d/alsa, I have
Code:

# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
then all the other stuff, and then at the bottom I have
Code:
options snd cards_limit=1

alias char-major-116 snd?

That can't be right? 8O :?:

Why is snd at the end like that?

All this did was turn off the modules loaded with warnings messages I was gettng at boot. Thanks for that. But the modprobe: modprobe: Can't find snd cards 1-7 errors remain.

Also removing the "_" does nothing to changes this as well. :x

Well I have snd-card-1 etc not snd-card-01 but don't think it will solve your problem.

Only thing I find about modprobe and alsa is in the alsasound script in /etc/init.d/:
Code:

  ebegin "Initialising ALSA."

  drivers="`/sbin/modprobe -c | \
    grep -E "^[[:space:]]*alias[[:space:]]+snd-card-[[:digit:]]" | \
    awk '{print $3}'`"
  for i in $drivers; do
    if [ "$i" != off ]; then
      einfon "Starting sound driver: $i "
      /sbin/modprobe $i
      eend 0
    fi
  done


If snd-card-[[:digit]] is set to off modprobe ain't called, maybe you're using an older/different script cause in my startup modprobe snd-card-1 etc is never called, it always calls /sbin/modprobe snd-emu10k1 or whatever the alias is pointing at.

Check the startup script / what version of alsa-driver are you running c.q. what script did you add to the boot runlevel?,

Hope you fix it,

Cya lX.

on my version of alsa, the snd_ can't be put on the front of either options mentioned above.

Code:
options snd major=116 cards_limit=1
