Default Re: nvaudio.o sometimes load, sometimes doesn't

Problem solved for Mandrake 9.2
Might work for other distributions though.
Don't use nvaudio.o driver.

Use Alsa driver instead.
Loads and works great.

If still no sound, then
at the command line, you may need
to run kmix and/or alsamixer
and make sure to (un)mute the
setting(s) you need, like
master volume, CD, etc...

Details here...

Now my modules.conf looks like this:

[modules.conf]
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias eth1 tulip
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci ehci-hcd
probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
alias eth0 nvnet
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
# module options should go here
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
