    [SOLVED] ALSA on gentoo

    I have been trying to set up ALSA on my gentoo system, kernel 2.6.34. I think I have an integrated nVidia High Definition sound card. I had ubuntu running with alsa working on this system.
    In my kernel I set
    Device Drivers  --->
    <M> Sound card support  --->
    <M>   Advanced Linux Sound Architecture  --->
    <M>   OSS Mixer API
    <M>   OSS PCM (digital audio) API
    [*]     OSS PCM (digital audio) API - Include plugin system
    [*]   PCI sound devices  --->
    <M>   Intel HD Audio  --->
    [*]   Build hwdep interface for HD-audio driver
    [*]   Allow dynamic codec reconfiguration (EXPERIMENTAL)
    [*]   Support jack plugging notification via input layer
    alsaconf finds no drivers, and when I run "/etc/init.d/alsasound start" it returns with:
     * Loading ALSA modules ...      [ ok ]           
     * Restoring Mixer Levels ...      [ok]
    lspci|grep -i audio returns with
    00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
    And alsamixer says Card: HDA NVidia, but only has one bar to adjust the volume. What do I have to do to fix this?

    Did you solve this yet? Is the snd_hda_intel module loaded? Use the lsmod command to find out.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
