OK, easy enough.

I've followed this procedure for a while with modprobe and it tends to
work on most "modular" systems I've tried it on. This is for the
on-board audio card I hate in another machine... but it would still

        greg@duke:/etc/modprobe.d$ cat blacklist-duke
        blacklist snd_via82xx_modem
        blacklist snd_via82xx

So, as you can see, you would need to make a file like this:


Add all the cs423* files in there like this:

        blacklist snd-opti92x-cs4231
        blacklist snd-cs4236
        blacklist snd-cs4236-lib
        blacklist snd-cs4232
        blacklist snd-cs4231
        blacklist snd-cs4231-lib

I use the blacklist-machinename so I know it will survive upgrades.
Quite a few times I had to re-edit the regular blacklist after an
upgrade. So I went through the scripts and found it looked for
"blacklist*" (pretty much that is) and did that.
