    Sound Problems

    Havent posted here in a while. Last night I installed Linux on my machine again, figured I would give it another chance. I cannot play sound on my machine I went into Control Center - Information - Sound and it says no information availible on Sound Card. What do I need to do to set this up?

    hello,
    did you recompile your own kernel at all? if so the heres what you wanna do - move the old kernel headers located at /usr/include/linux e.g. mv /usr/include/linux /usr/include/old_headers and create a link ot the new ones i.e.ln -s ../../src/linux/include/linux/ linux you need to type that while *in* the directory /usr/include.

    also - try 1st making it then doing a make install

    Re:Sound Problems

    Ok no I didnt recompile my kernel. I don't even know what that means. Could you walk me through it?

    Re:Sound Problems

    hello,
    well we should not need to re-compile the kernel, this is the hardest part about linux - unsupported hardware. if you want to compile you kernel here is the
    PET

    What you should do is make sure that the kernel source is installed - do a rpm -qa | grep kernel and see if anything that contains source and headers is there. i am guessing that you have headers installed, but not the kernel source.

    Re:Sound Problems

    Had the same problems when i installed RH-7.3 ... here's a linkie to the thread I started that hopefully points you in the right direction.

    I know that it can be frustrating not knowing what certain terminology or actions mean, but just as a suggestion you might want to try some IRC chat channels to help give you some insight. I use Xchat personally (too lazy to download anything else), and have found it very helpful to log into openprojects.net and join the #ljr channel ... has never failed to help me fix any problem I've encountered!
