Several issues in Fedora Core 6. Beryl doesn't start, telinit 3 gives me a black scre
n, and MCP51 high definition audio controller doesn't work. First things first. I had kernel 2.20.1-2933, but they didn't have a 16k stack kernel for that (if someone could point me towards a compiling a 16k stack kernel tutorial) so I forced the installation of the original fedora core 6 kernel 2.18.1-xxxx 16k stack kernel. That's when the text outside of Xserver stopped working, commands like telinit 3 brought up black screens, and didn't respond to ctrl + alt + F3 etc. I think it's because of the forced kernel downgrade. Next, I have beryl installed and working Nvidia drivers. But, beryl manager loads, unfortunately beryl doesn't work as a window manager. When I try to use beryl it just crashes to the fallback manager. Thirdly, I have a MCP51 high definition audio controller, part of the nForce 430 apparently, but it doesn't work in linux, It is recognized and the amixer output says the volume's at zero. I don't know how to change the volume for amixer though. Thanks in advance.
