[PlanetCCRMA] Hammerfall HDSP 9652 Installation

   I believe that alsaconf uses PCI Vendor and Device ID's to identify the
cards. I suspect that this card has a device ID that is not recognized. My
guess is that I could add this ID to some file and things would start
working, or at least get closer. I was sort of hoping that there was a file
around somewhere that already had it.

   Currently I am in the middle of a much more serious problem. I cannot
boot into Linux at all.

   If there is a grub expert out there who could help me, write me directly


I'm in deep, deep stuff right now... (and it doesn't smell good!) ;-)

Alsaconf is completely independent from the alsa drivers (it is just a
script). It should automatically discover your card.

Check the instructions on configuring alsa on Planet CCRMA, there are
details on manually configuring things. You could copy the modules.conf
file from a working computer that has audio configured and replace the
module name with the proper one for your card (snd-hdsp?).
