[PlanetCCRMA] snd-intel8x0 loaded but no sound on FC3

I've recently installed FC3 ccrma, and I no longer get sound from my 
snd-intel8x0 integrated card.
Audio does work using the basic Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667).

I have tried with kernels
 Fedora Core (2.6.10-0.6.rdt.rhfc3.ccrma)
 Fedora Core (2.6.10-2.1.ll.rhfc3.ccrma)

The driver seems to load without any problem, and I raise the mixer 
levels using alsamixer, but nothing.
I load Pd in verbose mode, this is usually a good test, and it doesn't 
complain - audio is opened.

 I have also fiddled with the external amplifier too - it's an Ibm T40 

my modprobe.conf :

> alias eth0 e100
> alias eth1 airo
> #alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
> #options snd-intel8x0 index=0
> install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && 
> /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
> remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; 
> }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
> alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
> alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
> alias net-pf-10 off
> alias ipv6 off

I went through all the troubleshooting options at 
and passed all the tests.

The only odd thing is when I stop and the restart alsa, I get the following:

> Restoring sound driver settings /usr/sbin/alsactl: load_state:1267: No 
> soundcards found...

The /etc/asound.state file is then reset to zero settings.

Any ideas? I'm out of any.
