Sound on an IBM NetVista; was Re: Alsaconf & halting a frozen laptop.

Nigel Henry, Thomas Preud'homme & others,

Thanks for all the attention to this problem.

nh> I'd suggest adding a line to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base, as below.
install snd-hda-intel /bin/true

Very promising but, alas, it fails.  alsaconf 
is still required.

tp> I just blacklist via82 module. I added 3 lines 
to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist : 

Sorry to say that blacklisting snd_hda_intel 
also fails to make sound work.

I can only speculate that snd_hda_intel is 
needed to initialize something.  Then 
snd-intel8x0 is needed for ongoing processing.

Unless another idea surfaces, all I can think 
of now is to downgrade back to etch and try 
the earlier kernels mentioned by Nigel.

Thanks again,      ... Peter E.
