ok so this is my first install, and everything went fairly smoothly. i just can't figure out why i am getting these errors on boot up:
snd-cs4232 and snd-wavefront can't load module. When I am not calling them in the rc.conf or modprobe.conf.

If i can get the sound working that is it...then i can play around and see if this is the distro i've been looking for. Any help would be much appriciated.
Try disabling hotplug daemon and loading desired modules via rc.conf's MODULES array.
I believe those snd-cs4232 and snd-wavefront modules are needed for your sound to work? What's the output, if you modprobe them manually after system start?
FATAL: Error inserting snd_cs4232 (/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-ARCH/kernel/sound/isa/c s423x/snd-cs4232.ko): No such device
FATAL: Error inserting snd_wavefront (/lib/modules/184.108.40.206-ARCH/kernel/sound/isa/wavefront/snd-wavefront.ko): No such device
all internal sound is working with the snd-intel8x0, but i am not getting any sound via internet. If i disable hotplug, i'll have to load my usb mouse and keyboard modules in rc.conf right? And is it necessary to add a GDM in rc.conf if you set the init default to 5? i could live without but i think the console scares my girlfriend...
thanks for your reply, I appriciate it!
wait... sound works fine but you're getting errors from other modules? put the snd_cs4234 and snd_wavefront in your hotplug blacklist (/etc/hotplug.d/blacklist I think)
and the "internal sound" is no different from "playing sound from the internet" - it has to do with something else entirely... what is "sound from the internet"? a downloaded mp3? an audio stream?
If i disable hotplug, i'll have to load my usb mouse and keyboard modules in rc.conf right?
No - there is no keyboard module and no mouse module either... the only module you'd need is for general usb support (ehci_hcd, ohci_hcd, uhci_hcd)
And is it necessary to add a GDM in rc.conf if you set the init default to 5?
They're different ways to get to the same result... doing it through init 5 and executing it in the daemons array gives you the same results... it's only slightly different...
same here = same modules, same errors
Took hotplug out, since I know the modules I need and I load them by hand. It's pretty weird hotplug detects them, considering that they're not built withing the kernel. Should this be interpreted as a kernel building bug?
P.S. haven't tested the sound yet... it's a minor issue compared to the loads of recovered files (from my ex-almost dead hdd) I have to check and put back in place

No hotplug detects modules based on hardware IDs... it doesn't have anything to do with the kernel.
any streaming or live audio doesn't seem to come through, but anything I have on my hd the audio is great. Thanks for all the help so far...really! Is there a seperate user group to enable audio? For instance the homestar runner page has no audio (one of my favorites, and a test site for me for flash and audio)
