on the subject of 2 seconds fixes,here's the one i used to have sound working:

cd /usr/src

mkdir cvs/alsa

cd cvs/alsa

export CVSROOT=":pserver:anonymous at cvs.alsa-project.org:/home/alsa/cvsroot"

cvs login

password: guest

cvs -z3 co .

cp -a alsa-driver/ ../../

cd ../../alsa-driver

./cvscompile --with-smp=no --with-processor=i586 --with-isapnp=yes
--with-sequencer=yes --with-debug=none --with-oss=yes --with-cards=card-sbawe

make install

add these line in your /etc/modules file:


then reboot,it should work fine then,if it don't,yell at me.
