Kernel update broke my system...I think
I am noticing a problem on startup:
Then after it starts the daemons it won't start X. Instead, where it says yourhostname login: right before starting SLiM it keeps flashing and eventually says
/usr/sbin/alsactl load_state:1686: No soundcards found... [FAIL]
I'm not sure if the two are related but everything was working perfectly fine beforehand and now suddenly it won't boot into X.
init: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
When I run aplay -l, instead of listing my soundcards I get this:
Again, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with why X won't start. If I run startx I get this message:
aplay : device_list:252 No soundcards found....
I've also recently performed a system upgrade and it updated the kernel..
xinit: giving up
