Hi everyone. Hopefully someone can help. Installing knoppmyth, and having no
end of trouble with the soundcard.

Its an onboard VIA VT8235 chipset. On a PCChips M925 motherboard. Alsa auto
confs the cards being an ens1731, which doesnt work. Altering the alsa-base
file to set it to snd-via82xx with options up the wazoo. Everything seems to
be set right

Modprobing insmods correctly, and theres no errors, all dependensies load
correctly. all procs are running. Try and run either aumix or alsamix and
nothing works.

Alsa-autoconifg wont detect a device as being there.

/proc/asound contains a file called cards which says no soundcards, the only
device that seems to detect is the timer.

If you need anymore info let me know, im new to this linux thing.
