    [SOLVED] Lost sound after kernel update - automatic module loading


    This is kind of an Arch and coffee lounge post ...

    Over the last couple of days I suffered my first real problem with automatic module loading. It happened after a system update using
    Code:
    pacman -Syu
    there were quite a few package updates, a kernel update etc and after a reboot the sound stopped working.

    I finally cured the problem by adding !snd_cmipci to MODULES in /etc/rc.conf. This was after copying my Gentoo kernel .config and compiling a custom kernel to convince myself it was a kernel related problem .

    I guess next time I'll consider modules a bit earlier in the process .

    ... anyway - do you use
    Code:
    MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes"
    in /etc/rc.conf ?
