    Alsamixer no elems forgot how to sort it out...


    I got way toooo cocky when trying to compile a new distro and for me been a relative n00b it was easier to reinstall, especially since i have only been using slack for a week so i didnt loose too much. Besides i did the install without needing a readme this time which can only be a good thing.

    Im looking for a thread which showed me the way to deal with this problem. (hope this makes sense...) I had to move the something to do with a modem to the hotplug blacklist as it was the sound card 0 and my soundcard was 1 (sense?) and this sorted the problem out.

    Does anyone know how to do this or have a link? I have been looking for ags through google but cant find the thread again.

    Sorry, should have added some detail. I found this

    According to the bug report from (bug id 0000245), hotplug
    is automatically loading the snd-intel8x0m (modem) module. After adding
    this module to /etc/hotplug/blacklist, alsamixer and the sound is working
    just fine.
    Which is exactly what i did but i cant remember how to do it.

    Do i just add "snd-intel8x0m" to etc/hotplug/blacklist ??
