Help me please.

I am attempting install Linux Slackware 12.1 in my laptop (Dell Vostro 1310), but have many problems with video driver (sometimes work the mouse and keyboard, but sometimes not work these) and sound (alsamixer not working), I attempt to work with menuconfig, but I am new with linux, and I think that I damage this file.

Which are step for install this distro of linux in my laptop?.

Thank You for you time.

mfduqued,
I succesfully installed Slackware 12.2 (last version) on my Dell Vostro 1000, and had it previously running 12.1 without an issue.

For alsamixer to work, if you are getting the same error as I was getting (error while starting kde sound system after login) the solution is to start the kuser program (as root) and add your un-privileged user to the 'sound' group.

I see you are in Colombia, so I assume you can read spanish. If that's the case, you may find a small guide I wrote useful: http://elcodiguero.com/linux/210-sla...22-instalacion


Regards.

Oops, I made a mistake: the group name is not "sound" but "audio"
