In my case there are 3!!! I ve got a PCI Soundblaster Live! card, the
5.1 nforce2 chip and another simple onboard soundcard. I can disable
the nforce chip (found no such option in the bios menu). When I tried
to disable the other onboard card ubuntu fell completely silent. I
guess I sould reconfigure alsa or something.

So I guess this feature is not availiable in Hoary. I 'll soon upgrade
so I'll look for it.

Could you be a bit more specific, or point a related thread in the

In case I try to use this alternative, how can I find the module names?
