My (alsa) sound was working for awhile. Then I started installing things and some things broke. I'm not sure all my config files are correct (I see it chattering about snd-card-1 at boot when I swear the aliases that map snd-card-1 to snd-card-intel8x0 exist...)

It's probably related to it not being able to find my card's driver when it attempts to load it. When I try manually, I get this:

lucky a # modprobe snd-card-intel8x0
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-card-intel8x0
lucky a # locate intel8x
/lib/modules/2.4.19-gentoo-r1/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.o
/lib/modules/2.4.19-r1/misc/snd-card-intel8x0.o
lucky a #

So, see the snd-card-intel8x0 library module in the 2.4.19-r1 tree, but not in the 2.4.19-gentoo-r1 tree? That seems like a big piece of the problem. I'd gladly recompile it into 2.4.19-gentoo-r1 if I could figure out how. I had tried to just copy the .o's from -r1 to -gentoo-r1, but I ended up with some unresolved dependencis (shown by depmod -a).

My modules.autoload has both snd-card-intel8x0 and snd-pcm-oss (snd-pcm-oss works manually).

Suggestions? I've searched all sort of things and can't figure it out.

Do you happen to have your kernel config file for you old kernel where alsa was working? (maybe /usr/src/linux/.config.old ?)

If so, diff that with your new kernel config file (/usr/src/linux/.config) and see if there's any sound-related differences. My guess is you don't have the right settings in your current kernel config.

That's a great suggestion -- and now I know that I haven't been good at saving the configs. Since I've recompiled twice since it broke, I'm thinking that I've lost the good config. And I've just been using the same config everytime -- not doing a "save to alternate file".

Maybe I shouldn't be using menuconfig. There's probably something cooler, right?

So, I'll look thru my "notes" from when I got it working the first time, and check the kernel config to see what I could have done. (I must have REMOVED something, right? Or could I have added something that has now created a conflict?)

What's the difference between the -r1 and the -gentoo-r1 trees? In my previously-working kernel (for which I've lost the kernel config), I must have been working off the -r1 tree. But now I'm in the -gentoo-r1 tree, I guess. I wonder if I can delete the -r1 tree...

If you did compile a new kernel, you have to re-emerge the alsa-driver package, to get the alsa sound drivers updated, too. They will install in the correct directory, too ;)
