|REMARK: That procedure was to DSL HD Install|
Sorry, I have not explained well that point before.
If you run from CDROM also you can use the sndconfig utility without problems. But if you reboot the computer then sndconfig is lost because the utility was loaded and executed from the RAM memory.
Try first to use sndconfig. Using sndconfig we will find the correct resource assignations (port irq,dma).
The modules relationed to sound are several.
Some modules are the same for all systems (for example "soundcore") but from they one is specific for the sound chipset or chipset families, that module is the driver.
During the boot, DSL attempt to assign the correct driver module and if you read the messages just before the launching of desktop, you will see a line like to this:
At that moment DSL is doing that process. The driver module election will be ever correct but many times on old computers fails because there are resource conflicts. For example, the sound chipset had assigned an irq value that is been used by other device from system.
Also It could be useful if you post the results from this two commands, open ATerminal and write:
The "lsmod" command will show all from driver modules and the "cat /proc/interrupts" command how the irq's was assigned.
