Hi Mr. Liu,
My modules all get autoloaded too, i'm not sure where
the config file for that is (or if it's just some
hardware-detection thing that they have now (you
didn't have to worry about these things back in the
day...), anyway, is your sound card detected in the
kernel messages, or is it definitely loading the wrong
driver? (it might just be something as simple as
needing to add yourself to the 'audio' group...)
It loads the right driver but because the driver has a bug that it only
works for ac97 compatible, mine is sound blaster. I'm thinking of
compiling a new kernel which enables only soudcard support without alsa
and oss modules, and try installing alsa/oss manually. Do you think
that would help?
