In fact I do have a problem with loading the sound problems -- or even with
using Yast to configure the soundcard. Yast indicates the following sound
cards (under Hardware/Sound):
Number Card Model
Not configured Sound Controller
If I try to edit the first card, Yast simply returns me to the main screen.
If I try to delete it, nothing happens. If I try to edit the second card, I
get an error.
So how can I set Yast on the path to goodness and righteousness? And after
I've done that, how can I force autoloading of the necessary modules?
More generally, if a module isn't getting loaded on startup, how should I
specify that it should be loaded? I could always insert explicit modprobe
commands into a startup file, but that seems to me to be a dirty way of
solving the problem. Somewhere there ought to be a list of modules that I
could add to.
And by the way, I've done alsaconf many times. It seems to work.
