I've solved that by running /sbin/generate-modprobe.conf manually (from modules-update) : sudo /sbin/generate-modprobe.conf modprobe: Invalid line 125 in /etc/modules.conf modprobe Failed to to run modprobe. Giving up. well, I've removed that modprobe and it's working now. Might be my fault.

tried, didn't helped. I don't know why there wasn't an error with modprobe command in /etc/modules.d/xxxx

all done. My problem is alsa's dmix. As you could see from my first email, I have two cards and everything is dmixed to hw:0,0, which is Audiophile 2496. It was worked before (gentoo-sources-2.6.15-gentoo-r5 and sooner), but stops with r7. Michal
