Hello Guys, i am Nish from India !
I have installed Mandrake Linux 9.1.4 on my pc ,its configuration is as displayed below :
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 HT Processor
Intel D865 GBF Desktop Board,
Soundmax 4XL Onboard Audio,
The fact that i did mention about my onboard audio is actually for a reason, i insatlled my Linux on my pc n then rebooted it to start my pc ,so while booting process ,linux halts at the booting time when trying to load my sound driver ,it is not able to move ahead skipping that step,so i need to know is there any solution to skip this step from linux booting ?
i also tried reinstalling,repairing my linux software but still it gets stuck on that particular step...what should i do to get my system started ???
i dont use any other external sound card , so, folks here plsss can you please help me outa this ??
while booting ,it says " Loading audio driver ......." n gets halt at the point !!!!
any help would be much appreciated !! Thank you very much !
I don't know about mandrake, but you can search for the sound card in /etc/modprobe.conf and comment the snd-card-0 entry.
If your system has a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file, you can try to add an entry at the bottom of file to prevent that module be loaded at boot time. The name in this file is the word next to snd-card-0 in /etc/modprobe.conf.
After that, you can search for a real fix for this issue. Upgrading your system is the first step.
