I just got Mandrake 9.0 working, but graphics are too slow (guess I'm missing 3D acceleration) and couldn't configure my onboard sound.
The board is a ECS-K7SOM+ 5.1
Chipset: SiS 730D North and SiS962L South (had to open the case just to check this 'cos it's not specified in the manuals nor clearly in the web)
Onboard Sound: CMedia CMI9738 AC'97
Onboard video: embedded in SiS 730D
Had to install it on expert mode and couldn't keep a windows partition (froze every time I tried, guess it's just too intelligent
note: I've installed linux like 10 times, since 1996). Guess I'll plug in an old ATA66 3Gb for my pirated winbloze.
Well. I just downloaded from CMedia their linux drivers and from SiS too (exact version wasn't specified so I don't expect much)...
What I don't get is why lspci doesn't find anything. Same for scanpci
I thought linux couldn't work at all without lspci working.
If you have some suggestions/clues please tell me. I'm at work right now so I can't try anything right now but I'll do it later.
