For a couple of weeks now, it tries to find audio device(s), times out
after about 30 seconds and kills the search process, and the system
comes up with no audio whatever.
aplay -l reports no soundcards found.
I can modprobe snd-usb-audio and the USB card works. USB card works on
other machines without any gyrations at all.
I can modprobe snd-intel8x0 and ALSA then sees the onboard Intel sound.
lsusb shows the sound card even when ALSA doesn't. lspci shows the
onboard sound device.
Kernel is 32-bit non-RT 3.7.5. alsa-base was updated to 1.0.25.
There were no hardware changes. This is running on my temporary
replacement very-old (12+ years old) Toshiba laptop. (The 9-year-old
Toshiba laptop is dead. With grace and a declining credit card balance,
a new laptop could arrive the end of this month!)
Debian Sid has been running very successfully on this machine for a long
I've set up a basic script I can run to load the two drivers, but they
still refuse to load on bootup.
