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.

install snd-hda-intel /bin/true
Very promising but, alas, it fails. alsaconf
is still required.

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.
