Only howto to get it work i found was this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=253725 Its with a patch for really old smaller kernel-2.6.16 drivers from nvidia. finally the 2.6.24-patch worked. I could compile the nvsound module. I did everything like in the howto blacklist snd_intel8x0 in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist install nvsound /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install nvsound ; sleep 1; /usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || : remove nvsound { /usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove nvsound in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia I could load the module, start th nvmixer and choose 5.1 no problem. But i couldnt deactivate the intel8x0. I put it in the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base-blacklist I put the install nvsound.. in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and commented out the snd_intel8x0. I started alsaconf but i couldnt choose the new module. I dont understand al this alsa-chaos. Would be great if sb help me. I will write a howto about this, i promise ;) Greets darkness
