HDA-Intel does not work, anymore?
Unknown hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Realtek ALC660-VD" "HDA:10ec0660,10431339,00100001 HDA:10573055,10431316,00100700" "0x1043" "0x1339" Hardware is initialized using a guess method
To get any audio at all I have to manually execute "alsactl init" every time despite rc.alsa being executed as normally, albeit giving the reported error above.
There are no errors in the kernel pool as per dmesg, there are no other errors or warnings. When attempting to play audio in e.g. xmms the program will apparently be playing audio, but no actual audio is produced by the speakers -- until I execute "alsactl init" by hand.
The audio is not turned off or down, the audio device is not disabled in the BIOS configuration. The speakers are not broken -- as I just mentioned the audio will play once I by hand execute said command.
The system is a standard x86, an Asus G1S running 32-bit Slackware 13.1, a fresh install.
There were no issues whatsoever with the sound in Slackware 12.0, nor have there been ever problems with the sound in Windows Vista on the same computer.
The audio issue is prevalent on both the standard Slackware 13.1 kernel 126.96.36.199 and also on a custom kernel configured by myself for 188.8.131.52.
Is this a problem with one of the binaries Slackware uses, perhaps part of ALSA, or some other binaries? Have anyone else experienced issues?
How should I proceed to resolve this issue?
