I've added the asla boot option to DSL-N and have alsa.dsl and gnu-utils loaded on boot. The alsa autoconfig message comes up during the boot sequence, but the alsa drivers do not load for my sound card.
I tried the "alsaconf" command from a terminal window - the configuration found my sound card (Intel 82801DB/DBL/DBM AC'97 Audio integrated on the motherboard) and gave a message that all loaded OK - but no snd modules were loaded.
I tried the "rmmod" command on snd and snd_mixer_oss - the only two modules loaded on boot - and re-tried "alsaconf" with the same result.
Then I tried:
# modprobe snd_intel8x0
sh: line 1: /lib/alsa/modprobe-post-install: No such file or directory
FATAL: Error running install command for snd_intel8x0
snd_intel8x0 30528 0

soundcore 11104 1 snd
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
Finally, I noticed the "alsa setup" item on the right-click menu, tried this and the sound started working.
After re-booting, no matter what I do, I cannot get the sound to work - did anyone else have the same problem?
