Angry C-Media sound card problems


I have a 4 chan C-Media sound card and mandrake doesnt mix it rite... i can only play 1 sound at a time... in windows( ) I used to play like 10 sounds at once.... how do i fix this?
oh yea, something else... everytime i boot, i have to unmount my shared folder, share it, mount it so it can be shared with other pcs... how do i make sort of a script for this?

OK, taking your last question (about scripts).

If you know the commands that need to be entered, then you can make a script. At its easiest, a script file can be considered to be like the dos .BAT file. There are a few differences:

command --parameter will run the command.
command --parameter & will run the command and get onto the next one before this finished. Possibly less useful than:
command --parameter && will run the command and not run the next until this has finished.

So, for example, you could have a script that looks like this:

command1 --parameter && command2 --parameter.

It really can be as simple as that.

Oh yeah, once you've written the script, you must make it executable:

chmod +x myscript

That should be it done. You run it as you would any normal script (don't forget to put a ./ if you're running it from the current directory).

well i do't think it's so much a problem as "the way it is". i'd guess that you're not using esd tho, i *think* the esd sound server does allow for multiple inputs and such, but i've not used it. linux sound is not the most amzing thing in the world quite yet.

acutally, i just had a fiddle with esd, and got it working ok, had to unlock the esd server with "esdctl unlock". try playign two mp3s at once with two versions of xmms with esd output selected

OK, for the NVidia stuff, here's one I made earlier (thread about installing NVidia stuff). A note though, since this thread it has become apparent that you'll need to:
rpm -Uvh something.rpm --force to get it to work.
