no sound / ALSA after upgrade to kernel 2.6.15.4-1 - SOLVED

Hi,
just upgraded to 2.6.15.4-1 and my sound won't work. (Nvidia nforce 2).

Alsamixer says no card installed. I'm not sure where to start and don't want to make a mess of things.  Anyone have any ideas??


Thanks,

Jim

do you have added MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes" to rc.conf?

OK,,

Decided to try the fixes suggested in the order received. The first one worked. I just commented out the two OSS compatability lines in modprobe.conf and rebooted and everything is ok.


Thanks,

Jim

What about soudblaster live???
It doesn't work with kernel 2.6.15 alsa modules, there was another thread about it here, i've solved the issue just downgrading to kernel 2.6.14 but now i needed to upgrade it again because of the new udev and i've back with no sound at all....

/etc/modprobe.conf
# OSS Compatibility

/etc/rc.conf
MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes"
MODULES=(usbserial nvidia snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm-oss)
DAEMONS=(syslog-ng !hotplug !pcmcia network netfs crond nvidia cups samba xinetd alsa)

The mixer settings are unmutted. But still, no sound

What am I doing wrong?
