well I finally got a nice kernel and updated the /etc/modules.conf file.   but
the alsamixer is not finding audio devices.  any clue what I have configured

[root@dhcp-183-1-168-192 noah]# /sbin/depmod -a
[root@dhcp-183-1-168-192 noah]# alsamixer -c1
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for hw:1: No such device
[root@dhcp-183-1-168-192 noah]# alsamixer -c0
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for hw:0: No such device
[root@dhcp-183-1-168-192 noah]# alsamixer
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
[root@dhcp-183-1-168-192 noah]#
