Ok, after recompiling and rebooting, yes, soundcore did show up in
modconf. And no, it still doesn't make any sound. And /proc/sound
still looks great with the exception of the absence of anything at all
under "Installed drivers" and "Card config".
I made the experiment of installing 'sndconfig' from unstable. I
remember using it on a RH 6.0 install. It seems to basically do
everything I already did, to no improvement.
I've been searching the debian-user archives. Haven't found a fix
yet. May just give up on sound.
