See, the recompiling the kernel is what I'm trying to avoid unless it's updated kernel like 2.6.x. I have downloaded and going to recompile but I would like to make this kernel ( 2.2.20 ) for a fall back and wanted to listen to some music while I'm working.
Now, here is what I get.
Now, that looks like I have ALSA installed. But I have no idea how to check to either it's OSS or ALSA is currently running. ps aux didn't tell me squat about which is running ( or not ).
supradeb:/etc/sound# modprobe es1371.o
modprobe: Can't locate module es1371.o
supradeb:/etc/sound# whereis oss
supradeb:/etc/sound# whereis alsa
I went to /usr/share/alsa and found this.
So that looks like ENS1371.conf is what I need. But how do I configure that?
alsa.conf cards pcm sndo-mixer.alisp
supradeb:/usr/share/alsa# cd cards

Man, when it comes to using Linux as desktop, I'm at loss except beautifying it. I need sound. After that, I need Printer ( since my HP LaserJet 5L refused to work correctly even though linuxprinting.org listed that as working perfectly using hpl4 module ) and then scanner. Then, I will be all set.
