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.

I have no sound at all nothing. I just recompiled my kernel from 2.4.25 to 2.6.7 and now i have no sound. my users are part of the audio group, but i don't think that matters for a console beep, nor is a sound card that i know of. I'm not running X or any GUI at the moment because of my onboard video is frustrating, which is another thing i haven't been able to find easily on how to fix or trying it. I have the out put of lsmod and lspci -v for the video card and the sound card.

What config file did you use when you compiled you new kernel?
Did you just copy over your old kernel config file, the defconfig file that comes with the kernel or did you configure your own kernel?
I know when I went to 2.6.7, I had to modify the audio settings within the .config file. I had to disable OSS and ALSA on the kernel, but enable Sound Card support. Then when I ran alsaconfig (v1.0.5) everything configured properly. Otherwise I got the same no soundcard found issue.
If you haven't configured the 2.6.7 kernel, go to the
cp .config .config-bak
cp .config-bak .config
(fix your audio settings and save/exit)
su -c "make modules_install"
reboot and try running alsaconf again.
If it fails, you just have to make mrproper and cp .config-bak .config and remake and you'll be right back where you just were.
i used the one in /usr/src/linux-2.6.7/.config , then configured it from there but all i mainly want is the console beep at least for now, i know it sounds weird but i kinda like it. The sound card shouldn't effect the pc speaker should it??
that I'm not particually sure of.. I usually rip out the PC speaker in my systems cause I find the beep annoying as hell. Only put it back in when the system won't start or something so I can hear the beep pattern given off.
