Ok, I am encountering a number of problems with my linux installation. I hope someone is kind enough to help out.
Problem 1: XMMS works great for a little while, but if I leave it without playing anything, it randomly decides to stop working. I've tracked the problem to /dev/dsp. If I reboot, the same thing happens. Which leads to my next problem:
Problem 2: I can't shutdown. The computer hangs when I click "log out" in GNOME. I have to hit the power button, then go through the e2fsck deal on start up. Major pain.
Problem 3: My built in wireless card is not being detected. I've installed pcmcia and wireless-tools, but it doesn't detect the card. It is a built-in card and IBM knows of no drivers.
Can anyone help me out here? I am running Slackware 9.0 on an IBM T30 laptop.
