002:001 USB Hub: Virtual|Hub (hub)
001:001 USB Hub: Virtual|Hub (hub)

in rc.conf I have:

MODULES=(CDCEther via-rhine acm)

I don't use hotplug neither hwd in rc.conf.

Anyway, alsaconf doesn't detect any soundcard, and when I try to use links -g it fails to detect graphics driver...

Question: what modules do I have to load in rc.conf? I prefer not to use hwd nor hotplug so i'd rather load it manually.

P.S. I'm not sure if this is important but I'm using udev instead of devfs

Re: lshwd and modules...

I'm going to guess sound is snd-intel8x0 and video is i810.

Re: lshwd and modules...

I wish it was as simple as that...
When I put snd-intel8x0 and i810 in rc.conf modules I get
"can´t locate modules" on boot.

Re: lshwd and modules...

Boot with hotplug, then do lsmod to get a list of loaded modules.  Put the ones you want in MODULES of rc.conf. Then, comment out hotplug.

Re: lshwd and modules...

Laptop/Intel Celeron M340 1.5GHz
<Arch(wombat) kernel 2.4.29>

Just a dumb question... Do you have alsa-driver installed? 2.4.x kernels need the alsa modules installed separately. Upgrading to kernel 2.6 is another option.

Since this seems to be a Centrino (Celeron?) laptop, my guess is that the correct video module is i915. That's only needed for the DRI/3D stuff, though. Normal X programs should run fine without it.

I was using hotplug until last week... same result, plus an error during boot:

can't synthesize pci hotplug events

this was the reason why I quit hotplug. Then I changed to hwd but the loaded modules were the same.

I followed precisely what's in wiki howto "alsa setup" and installed alsa-driver. I agree that the video module should only be needed to fancy 3D stuff.

Anyway, how come I'm using opera, but when I try links it just can't find what it needs to display graphics? Is it because opera is a stand-alone package and links is not?

Heh, links can't display graphics at any time, it's a text browser.
