Re: [vox-tech] alsa configuration

What distribution are you using? In gentoo I have to edit /etc/modules.d/alsa for my specific sound card. Maybe you have a similar config file.

I have been trying to get the sound to work in my computer. At boot when
the ALSA mixer settings would be loaded, it fails and says to manually
use "alsactl restore". When I do that, it says "alsactl:
load_state:1134: No soundcards found...". When I google on that, peoples
problems mostly seem to be conflicts between OSS and ALSA when they have
both installed at the same time. As far as I know, the only OSS stuff I
have is the emulation in ALSA. Here is what lsmod says:

So what should I do? Do I really have some OSS thing that is causing a
problem for ALSA? Do I have all the right ALSA modules? Thanks.
