Mandrake 9.1 made my computer crap out...
When I had Windows 2000 installed, my computer was pretty good... I could get most new games to work, and have sound. Things were good.
I downloaded Mandrake Linux 9.1 a few days ago, and everything sucks. First off my sound is completely gone. Nothing has made a noise since I got this, and there isn't even a sound card listed in the HardDrake thing. I'm not exactly sure which sound card I have, but I do know that it's really old. Sound Blaster 16 or something...
I haven't tried many games, but every one of the 3d games included with it run at a crawl. (In fact, in "ArmageTron" it says it's 1 fps) It's really irritating, as I was under the impression that Linux was supposed to work with old hardware... Is there anything I can do to fix this, or should I just switch back to Windows?
Oh, and in case it matters, I have an Intel Pentium 2 processor, ATI Rage 128 graphics card, 128 mb RAM, and like I said no idea about my sound card.
