OK, the other day, I ran some updates, and rebooted my computer. Sound is now dead. I do not recall if the sound died immediately after the updates or not, but the updates were done earlier this week. I get no errors during startup, and from what I can tell, all is well, ecept my sound card is silent.

Now my only concern is that there is nothing in modules.conf. What can I do at this point?

Before you jump a bunch of hoops here, have you checked to see if you have sound in any other distro?  It is possible to be hardware related!

That was one of the first things I checked......But I did discover the problem. I had installed and set the latest kernel to be the default in LILO. I backed down to an earlier kernel and all is well.

Hi AdamLOL . . . you did find the replacement for /etc/modules.conf yourself: "/etc/modprobe.preload" that is good ! :thumbsup:Now the issue with the kernel would make you think that there would be missing modules when booting the new kernel . . . but your lsmod does show a good bunch of them.I would file a bug-report and stick to the old kernel as long as there is no replacement for the new one.:ph34r: Bruno
