No. Only a few modules are present:
At boot (alsaconf not yet run) lsmod reveals:
snd_emu10k1 105764 1
snd_rawmidi 23232 1 snd_emu10k1
snd_ac97_codec 84000 1 snd_emu10k1
snd_ac97_bus 2304 1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm_oss 35456 1
snd_mixer_oss 16640 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 72164 3 snd_emu10k1,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_seq_device 7916 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_rawmidi
snd_timer 22276 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_pcm
snd_page_alloc 9800 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_pcm
snd_util_mem 4544 1 snd_emu10k1
snd_hwdep 8900 1 snd_emu10k1
snd 50500 9
soundcore 9440 2 snd
I confess I am not up to speed on the current methods of module
management. As I understand it, modules are supposed to load on an as
needed basis. Shouldn't alsaconf have added the appropriate modules
to /etc/modules? Insmod and modprobe were more my speed but are
deprecated these days with regard 2.6 kernels. What is current or better
It's no prob to add a line or six to /etc/modules.
But which modules?
Will snd_emu10k1 chain load all the others?
Any others I need to add from the list above?
Any other files I need to modify?
I really appreciate the help
