Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

there are a lot of posts about nforce, but nothing seems relevant to my problem.
My nforce audio (module: mvaudio.o) works fine in 2.4.25, but when I recompiled to 2.6.4, it would n't work. I use Gentoo, so I should jsut be able to type "emerge nforce-audio" and it should work. It doesn't and I get an error telling me so.
Therefore, I decided that I might as well just compile from the source on the Nvidia website. I did all that it told me to do, untarring etc. Then, I cd-ed into the nvaduio folder and did:
hamish@archimedes nvaudio $ make
make: Entering directory `/home/hamish/nforce/nvaudio'

make: *** [nvhw.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/hamish/nforce/nvaudio'
make: *** [all] Error 2
It was not properly compiled and I don't know what to do next.
Hi. I get the same error when trying to emerge nforce-audio. I know that it can work on this computer, since genkernel seems to work. Should something be added to the kernel configuration for this to work?
I am using a 2.6.7 kernel on an Athlon XP with an nv177 motherboard.
