Hunter, I am a new gentoo user and had trouble getting my sound card to work. It took me a lot of head scratching and I was able to finally get it to be recognized. I don't know what the statement below means or where you set this configuration.

On my system $ lspci | grep Audio 00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-H HD Audio (rev 31) 01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 10f1 (rev a1) and $ lsmod Module Size Used by nvidia_drm 40960 1 nvidia_modeset 864256 4 nvidia_drm nvidia 13398016 170 nvidia_modeset snd_hda_codec_hdmi 45056 0 xhci_pci 16384 0 xhci_hcd 139264 1 xhci_pci x86_pkg_temp_thermal 16384 0 i2c_hid 20480 0 My kernel config file shows # cat .config | grep SND_HDA CONFIG_SND_HDA=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_HWDEP=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_RECONFIG=y # CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP is not set CONFIG_SND_HDA_PATCH_LOADER=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK=m CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_ANALOG=m # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_SIGMATEL is not set CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_VIA=m CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_HDMI=m # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CIRRUS is not set # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CONEXANT is not set # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CA0110 is not set # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CA0132 is not set # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CMEDIA is not set # CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_SI3054 is not set CONFIG_SND_HDA_GENERIC=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_POWER_SAVE_DEFAULT=0 CONFIG_SND_HDA_CORE=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_I915=y CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=2048 What are you using for your sound? ALSA or PulseAudio? I ended up going with PulseAudio myself to get my sound working. Hope any of this helps you, Eric
