Ok.  having a little problem with sound.   I guess this isn't a myth
specific issue,
but I can't seem to get anything going on this. Any help would be

nforce chipset ( investigaed and found that the nvaudio driver is just

Here is my modules.conf

alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

But after bootup lsmod reported that nothing was loaded.
  So I was wondering why they didn't load.  I did a modprobe -d snd and
a modprobe -d snd-intel8x0
after that I saw this...

Module                  Size  Used by    Tainted: P

But still no sound.

Also having a problem changing channels watching live tv.  It seems to
just freeze up.   It wasn't
doing this before, so I am wondering if it is a setting on my part.
