Sub_title: Micron desktop onboard sound not mixing

300MHz Micron desktop with onboard opl3sa2 sound correctly identified, puppy barks after setting up ALSA sound, but mixer does not work (cannot find /dev/mixer) and there is no vol control in tray.
Plays sound correctly otherwise. Used with unpowered speakers, still loud enough to hear in a quiet room. Hardware works fine with Win2K.

I have the EXACT same issue with my Toshiba laptop and it's internal opl3sa2.
Everytime i boot i have to setup ALSA and then it works but it always forgets on reboot.

It may be a problem with Puppy's newish hardware detection.

- Before setting up your sound card, open a terminal and run lsmod to see what modules are loaded.
- Set up the sound card, then run lsmod again, and see what new modules have been loaded.
- Click "Menu->Setup->Wizard Wizard->Configure startup of Puppy->Click here to add a new module"
- Add the modules to the list.

If you have two sound cards it may be detecting and automatically setting up the other one, in which case you may have to use one of the other buttons to give the preferred one priority, or even blacklist the modules for the other one.
Also, maybe Puppy is detecting your card wrong, and loading the wrong module... I'm not really an expert on any of this stuff Sad
