Ain't that the truth - I have a backup script that backs up every 
important file in my myth-system. Unfortunately This file wasn't set up 
to be configured...

It turns out that the order in which the two sound modules were listed 
mattered...
Iswapped things around and I now got the emu10k1 module to load and get 
sound through myth.
However, I cannot load the onboard sound module...

sound: Loading sound module (snd-emu10k1) succeeded
Jun 30 17:36:07 localhost kernel: snd-via82xx: Unknown symbol 
snd_ac97_get_short_name
Jun 30 17:36:07 localhost modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting snd-via82xx 
(/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/kernel/sound/pci/snd-via82xx.ko): Unknown 
symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

Not sure what this is...


Cheers,


-Morten
