Although alsaconf can detect two or more sound cards, it only configure one sound card for you. It will remove previous sound card configuration when you configure the second sound card.

You have to manually add your second, third, ... sound card config in /etc/modules.conf for Kernel 2.4.x or /etc/modprobe.conf for Kernel 2.6.x

First look if the driver was loaded. With "lsmod" look if there is a module called snd-au88x0 (replace x with 1,2 or 3).
If there is non, load it with "modprobe snd-au88x0" (again, x depends on your card, 1,2 or 3). You should see in when doing "dmesg" something, like "vortex init ... <6> done.". That means the driver loaded succesfully. After that raise the volume of PCM and Master using "alsamixer", and enjoy.

Best Regards

I have a Vortex 2 card and I have installed Alsa 1.0.1 package on my Slack 9.1. Everything ran ok and all modules load when linux boot but when I try to play a mp3 file with mpg321 it says that file /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p doesn't exist. I've run alsaconf which found my 8830 card. I have installed on my system a tuner too and alsa loads snd-bt87x module. I think this is the problem because alsaconf configured only one card (vortex or tuner, i don't know which). Is there anyone who could help me please ???
