after 4 tries i finally got alsa working and it took 3 tried of doing the same thing to realize i forgot one stupid line because i jsut skimmed the install instructions.... so for anyone who is having trouble installing alsa... 1) make sure u dont have any other sound modules (oss) currently installed a.k.a. dont jsut modprobe restart the fuckin machine to make sure u get rid of everything and coment out anyithing in rc.modules to do with sound. 2) THIS IS HUGE modprobe soundcore all i had to do was that then restart and boom is works.... grrrr so much wasted time on stupidity.

btw alsa kicks ass... better sound quality than windows :D

I have a pair of shitty 8 year old speakers but they still sound ok......well for a pair of 8 year old speakers.....

but I'll hopefully upgrade to a 2.1 system in the next cuple o months, I dont want the hassle of configurin a new 5.1 system + a new soundcard.....

ya, always remember that sound is muted by default to protect hardware and peoples ears.. as well to mess with the minds of the ignorant, after all the people who code this great stuff then give it to the world free have to have some way to have fun ;)
