Unhappy Instal drivers for gigabyte atom motherboard on Linux O/s


Of course I am new to the Linux comunity. I have decided to do away with windows for the obvious reasons. I have carried out a new instal of Ubuntu 10.04. on a formatted HDD in a Gigabyte GA-510UD atom mother board and have found that I can't install the M/B drivers from the indtall disk. Any solutions please.

Welcome to LQ.

What M/B drivers and what install disk are you referring to?

What did you do to try to install them? What error messages are you getting?

note that linux is a "monolithic" kernel.

This means:
1. you don't have to install drivers by hand. in all probability they're present in the kernel itself.
2. by the way, windows software (and drivers) won't work on linux.

Do you have working video/sound?

We might be able to help you get the sound working. To do so we need to know what the device is. To find this out, please run the following command and post the output to the forum
Code:
lspci | grep -i audio

MY PROBLEM HAS BEEN SOLVED.....

Turned out to be a faulty jack plug on new speaker system, discovered this by plugging in a set of headphones...nearly deafened me.

Thanks to all for your assistance.
