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.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

I have a sound related issue. I have an IBM thinkpad 390E, 333mhz, 4.8 gig HD, 64 megs of RAM, and it is running RedHat 7.2. Everything is running great and autodected like my internet, etc.. but when I stick in a CD, or click on an MP3... it acts like it is playing, but I get no sound. I have tried to fool around with the sound settings in control panel with no luck. The Kernel I am using is KDE. Any suggestions? I would really like to get the sound to work! Thanks.
ok try this:
get to a console;
then type su
and type the password.
then type setup
if it doesnt findit then type whereis setup to find the correct path.
when the setup screen appears, it will give you a lot of options to configure your system, including sound.
I have run soundcng... and it detected my card.... then it proceeded to make a 'test" noise... to see if i hear it. I can't... and if i turn the volume up on my laptop... it makes a high pitch screetch sound. I know sound works, because... i just had Windows on here. I'm kind of lost now..... any other thoughts?
I think I know what is wrong!!! but am not sure how to fix it! The sound card DOES work, but... at the same time.. apparently the mic. that is built into my laptop is on... so I am hearing the mic... and the sound at the same time. Which explains the high squeak sound i get when i turn the volume up (feedback). I figured this out when i put my headset on... and was able to hear the computer fan and myself typing. ;-) The question is........
Where is the mic settings in KDE and how can I turn it off?!! Any feedback greatly appreciated!
