alsa sound, getting rid of oss, how?
i have a problem with setting up my sound card on my notebook. not again, you might think, but please bear with me.
i have a intel hda card (ALC880) (3 jacks, one is a shared headphone/SPDIF jack) in my z9200va notebook.
1. installed the new alsa 1.0.10 drivers according to their howto.
2. boot into init 3, then manually add module "modprobe snd-hda-intel model=z71v" and there we go, the sound works perfect.
3. boot into init 5 (xserver), and no sound.
aah, forgot to edit the /etc/modprobe.conf he did you might think, but hang on.
"lsmod |grep snd" gives me two different outcomes when i boot into init 3 and init 5:
if i _didn't_ manually add the module and boot regulary (i.e. no init 3) then "lsmod|grep snd" gives a lot of oss entries (like "snd_pcm ... snd_pcm_oss,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec") which do not appear if i type "modprobe snd-hda-intel model=z71v" at init 3 (above entry then reads "snd_pcm ... snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec").
hmm, so my question is, how can i have normal sound after startup without having to load the module manually. and yes, i edited /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/modprobe.d/sound accordingly, it doesnt help.
or maybe somebody can tell me how to unload the redundant oss modules, that apparently are loaded when booting directly to the xserver,
but don't show up when booting with init 3, manually loading the module, then typing init 5.
i hope that all makes sense to somebody, thanks for any help.
