Problem: You use the intel8x0 alsa driver and after an update to 2.6.11-gentoo-x sound seems to play but you don't hear anything.
Solution: Mute Headphone Jack Sense and Line Jack Sense

Thanks a lot on this. I had been going crazy trying to find out why my sound stopped working.

You are the MAN. I have been trying to figure this out for the past few days. I've been coming back to the forum to see if anyone else had the same problem. Good detective work.

incredible...after doing several kernel config checks...it only took muting as per your instructions to get it to work...never had that probelm before...

question...during the boot up process...it warns me that it's missing the /etc/autoload.d...I don't know how that's possible...it's right where I left it! anyone know if there is a possability of a broken sym link or something with autoload.d?

*edit* found the problem...just something that I believe is new to the 2.6.11 kernel possibly ( at least new to me ). I used to make my autoconfig and name it as per the kernel versions...IE:
Code:
# nano -w /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r4

but during boot up, I'd get the ol' yellow astericks warning about autoload not being there...which was odd (this happened only after I upgraded to the 2.6.11 kernel), since this is the way I've been doing this for a year now and I've been thru several kernel upgrades...but what I found out (no news to most of you all probably) was that I needed to simplify the name:
Code:
# nano -w /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

and now...no more yellow astericks and BEHOLD...the boot upsequence actually mentions that it's loaded 1 module...and I've never seen that before.

I can only assume this is a new implimentation...so I hope this post is helpful to someone out there.

Yes, but that's not what this thread is about. It's a muting fix for a specific problem.
