Edit modprobe and remove all alsa and oss settings, turn the computer
completely off, see if you can turn the sound device off in your bios,
before you boot back up, remove all .asound files or anything you can
recall that has to do with sound configuration and settings. Get 'em
all. Turn the computer back off, turn it back on, edit bios to re-enable
the sound-device then proceed with the boot. Hopefully kudzo, or
whatever the heck the name of the util for hardware is, will find it and
set it up correctly. If it works, don't mess with it! An upgrade can be
dangerous like that when things change from one release to the next with
major changes. Old setup files go ape. <grins> Ric
