Default Re: GT430 On Linux (Slackware64 13.1) not recognized by ALSA

OK if I understand correctly, there is 2 different roads I can take to solve this problem...

1. Patch alsa using
2. use the probe_mask approach

Having absolutely no experience with these patches, I decided to give the probe_mask solution a try. I followed the instructions of but it seems not to work.

In a nutshell, heres what I did:

-Created /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf because it was non existent
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=0 probe_mask=0x108
to the file above (0x108 is from your instructions because eld#3.0 has my TV info.)

Everything complains of no audio device, no sound, alsa problems, etc

vlc says
Potential ALSA version problem:
VLC failed to initialize your sound output device (if any).
Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or higher to try to fix this issue.
mplayer says
[AO_ALSA] Playback open error: No such file or directory
Failed to initialize audio driver 'alsa'
Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.
Audio: no sound
Plus I have no sound in flash, amarok, anywhere in the system...Even KDE sounds are not working. Overall its a mess...........
