Hi Peter. I've only got the 2.6.8, and 2.6.11 kernels still on my Debian
installs, because I've been continuously upgrading since Woody, and it was
only a thought as those kernels were both pre udev IIRC, and may have been
worth a try if it's udev by some chance, that is causing the problem with the
2 sound modules being loaded.
Anyway, back to the sound problem.
How about putting some option lines in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base. I hope I
havn't already mentioned this. Try adding the 3 lines below to the bottom of
the alsa-base file.
options snd-intel8x0 index=0
options snd-usb-audio index=1
options snd-hda-intel index=2
I say this because at the moment both snd-intel8x0, and snd-hda-intel are
being loaded, and it seems like they are both trying to grab card0, which is
resulting in neither getting card0, and snd-usb-audio is getting card0,
because the other 2 are having a non resolvable argument as to who gets
Having added the above lines, reboot, and check:
See if they are in the order you set with the options lines above, and more
importantly, whether you have sound.
There is something else to try, but have a go at that first.
All the best.
