hello there!
as a complete noob and after trying a few distros i feel like i finnaly found the distro for me.
blag is just wonderfull ,fast ,smooth and working great .the artwork is beautifull and even the hebrew language support is working fine (which is not so common in other distros i tried) so i feel like saying thank you and keep up with the good work
now for the question- i've got a sis 7012 sound card which wasn't detected at first and just after installling alsa and running alsaconf i managed to get my sound working, the problem is that the alsaconf doesnt modify etc /modules.conf and i have to run it every time i boot to get my sound work.
alsa detects snd-intel8x0 as my sound module, how can i modify my system to detect it at boot without having to run alsaconf over and over again?

I know zilch about sound configuration but have you tried running update-modules (as root) after getting sound working with alsaconf? This resolved a related modules.conf issue for me.

Try adding this to /etc/modules.conf

Code:
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-card-intel8x0
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

well i've added this lines to etc /modules.conf but after rebooting i got my volume control disabled (a red line over the icon) and when i click on it i get error-could not open mixer device /dev/sound/mixer.
about running update-modules i tried doing that but didnt get any results,maybe i did it wrong... what is the specific command for running update-modules ,is it apt-get?

Have you run alsamixer from the command line to make sure your volume levels aren't muted on the sis device?

1) run alsaconf -- if it finds your sound card, you're in luck -- skip to step (4)
2) add the following line to /etc/modules.conf:
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
3) run alsaconf -- it should find the sound card this time
4) run alsamixer -- adjust your volumes to something you can hear (on some systems, by default, the volumes are set to zero) -- hint: To quit alsamixer, type Alt-Q.
5) run alsactl store -- this stores your volume settings, so you don't have to run alsamixer again the next time you boot
6) optional: To get certain features running, you may need to configure an .asoundrc file -- see http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-do...p/asoundrc.php3 and http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-do...module=intel8x0 for more information.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

what does this give you:

Code:
/sbin/lsmod


You should see a bunch of alsa/snd stuff there.

sorry jebba i cant really give an answer for that right now.
i tried to install the ccrma kernel which comes with alsa and with some other capebilities but i messed up my box -blag doesnt boot any more just windows....,for some reason i cant find my rescue disk :? so i guess im going to do a fresh installation of 10k and then come back again with an answer.

You can create a Linux bootdisk in Windows. Just pop in the BLAG CD and use the bootdisk directory.



Open the Command Prompt under Windows: Start | Programs | Command Prompt


C:\> d:
D:\> cd \dosutils
D:\dosutils> rawrite
Enter disk image source file name: ..\images\boot.img
Enter target diskette drive: a:
Please insert a formatted diskette into drive A: and press --ENTER-- :

D:\dosutils>

well im blaging again,thanks for the advice jason but i read it a bit to late...
anyway i made a fresh 10k install then installed alsa again,same problem occured again.
after doing some research over the web i suspect the problem is that the free oss modules are loading at startup and stoping alsa from loading.what i didnt manage to understand is how to stop them from loading at startup,any advice?
thank u

Find out what the oss modules are and remove them from /etc/modules.conf
