One thing I noticed, in my output previously posted, there are a number of snd references to oss. No mention of alsa. Is this right?

only me.
it has stopped working again. seems it was fine with a reboot, but a shutdown put an end to it. any ideas on what is affected by a shutdown but not a reboot. very odd.
the file :
/proc/asound/cards says 'no soundcards'
and in: proc/asound/modules is blank.
checking the list of loaded modules in the cosole, the relevant modules are loaded. alsa is not seeing the modules? who's fault? alsa or driver?
i also notice that in the oss folder, the oss is alsa emulation code. Im sure i saw something bad regards that. any ideas?
One more thing, in this line of code:
snd_intel8x0 29160 0,
what does tho '0' represent?

huge thanks and respect in advance of anyones input

is it possible alsa is trying to load the module as "snd-intel8x0.o" instead of "snd-intel8x0.ko" thoughts?

ZAPZAP,

how are you running puppy...from CD/DVD, usb or hdisk? Just curious if you try booting a CD, with prefix pfix=ram, whether sound works.

alsasound, at this address, in this code doesnt exist?

Sorry to hear it didn't work with a live CD. Actually I'm also experiencing sound problems and, from memory, it's also involving Intel8x0 module. (I'm currently away from laptop for another week).

Just curious, you mention you have a cy25 laptop. Which manufacturer? Also, does sound work with BIOS? e.g In my case machine used to make sound when power cord plugged/unplugged, regardless of whether puppy booted, but the sound is now defunct.

ZAPZAP

If you go to (setup>configure startup>load kernel modules) you
will find a few intel 8x0 modules and a place to blacklist
unwanted modules.

hi muggins,

its and 'rm cy25' though i think the specs are the same as the samsung model. no option to test sound with bios, and while were on the subject the bios, 'pheonix', is crap, poor options. the speaker 'pops' when the laptop turns on and off, thats it.

from what i can gather, alsa is able to identify the soundcard, load the relevent modules, but then cannot configure them, and as a result unloads them. Why this happens is beyond me. I tried asking the guys on irc chat, but they just got shirty and started abusing me, nice chaps that they are.

rjbrewer, thanks for suggestion, i have tried these settings with no luck , though i am continuing to try combinations of blacklisted modules, to see if there is a bad one.
