Wow! Five helpful people answered to my problem! Before I posted this, I
had been searching the Internet and docs during many hours, and I felt
alone and frustrated... Thank you Nigel, Chris, Thierry, Pol and Florian.
My problem needed indeed "just" a kernel upgrade, here is the summary of
what I did:
# nano /etc/apt/sources.list
(then added the following line
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main
# aptitude install debian-backports-keyring
# aptitude upgrade
# aptitude install linux-image-2.6.25-2.486

I just bought a desktop PC with a GeForce6100SM-M mainboard whose
NVIDIA MCP61S chipset is "High Definition Audio Specification 1.0
compliant". I installed the latest stable Debian (2.6.18-6-486),
everything worked well so far... except that there is no sound.
alsaconf says "No supported PnP or PCI card found"
I added a line "alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel" to
/etc/modutils/alsa-base and ran update-modules (after reading
Here are some things I tried:
# /etc/init.d/alsa reload

There is no directory /proc/asound
I checked whether the normal user is in the audio group:
# groups milvi
# milvi : milvi dialout cdrom floppy audio video plugdev
I'd be glad if somebody can help me! I'm willing to learn and not really
new to Debian, but audio configuration seems complex.
