I'm running DSL latest stable release, frugal installed (grub).
I'm trying to have alsa "configured" at boot.
So I have the alsa boot option enabled before loading alsa4dslv2.dsl (in boot). I have also put
"proc/, etc/modutils/sound, ramdis/etck/var/tmp/alsaconf.cards, etc/modprobe.conf, etc/asound.state, opt/alsa"into the filetool.list, plus
"/init.d/alsasound start" and "/usr/sbin/alsactl restore"into the bootlocal.sh.
Still I have to do the whole alsaconf stuff before having sound.
My hardware is pci intel8x0.
At this moment I can have a part of it configured by doing first
"/opt/alsa/alsasetup (just the command, without the other staps)" than "modprobe snd-intel8x0" plus "alsactl restore".
With this I can play wav files in xmms if configured with alsa (not oss, as it is by default).
Soundtracker on the contrary doesn't peep.
