just installed Gentoo on my new PC. I still have some problems with my custom
Kernel and 32bit java nsplugin doesn't work, but nothing as frustrating as a
non working sound.
I have a Gigabyte nforce 570 SLI board with
00:06.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
onboard that uses
snd_hda_intel 339492 0
snd_pcm 83848 2 snd_pcm_oss,snd_hda_intel
snd 65896 8
snd_page_alloc 15248 2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm
I'm currently running a Genkernel with sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.23-r5.
When I try to play a song with mpg123 I just get:
MPEG 1.0 layer III, 192 kbits/s, 44100 Hz stereo
initialize_device(): cannot set hw params
and speaker-test says:

I configured my soundcard with alsaconf and it worked(!!!) until this morning.
I installed some more softwre today but really don't know what could be the
problem. (Didn't do anything
Any help is really appreciated.
