Does anybody have any idea's for my next step.
The SUSE 8.0 personal that I have got running is proving a bit of a pain.
On install, the sound seems to work. On reboot, the start up dialogue it gets to the starting sound device, then tells me that its trying to restore old sound settings and then hangs. If I disable the AC97 device it boots up ok.
Also, when I try and mount the cdrom icon, I get a dialogue box that tells me:
cannot mount device
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: I could not determine the file system type, and none was specified.
For the first snag, I tried the idea from the elite k7s5a mainboard HOWTO - and no as far as I can find out I havem't got that mainboard, but there is a bit about AC 97 drivers being in the 2.4> kernels. when I tried the "modprobe i810_audio" thing? it gave me the stuff abit like in the HOWTO so I tried the echo "i810_audio>> /etc/modules thing and have got nowhere.
So does anyone have any ideas or hints, tips or links that I could try please?
like me in the dark!!!
