Yeah, which one is Bios? Is it Setup or Boot Menu? Then from there where do I go?

Ok, I just found BIOS, went into Integrated devices, and Sound was already disabled, so I have come up with some information

What we know

-Integrated was disabled from the beginning
-Mandrake thinks it's a Audigy LS, rather than a Live 24-bit

What I don't know

-Where or how to get the driver
-Anything about Linux lol

There is no way I can remember all that and ink is so expensive for our printer and it won't let us print in black even if the color cartridges are the only ones missing.

I can't remember it and I can't print it for reference, I am not on Linux right now, I am doing...work.....and I am using Windows, so what exactly will that do if it is succesful.

OK, I'm in Mandrake and I typed modrope snd_ca0106 as root, and it said FATAL:snd_ca0106 cannot be found, so I am going to assume that means I don't have that driver, where would I get it?

write it down on a piece of paper. Read the link. You have a network connection with nix, so come back then

I got the ALSA drivers he was talking about, but a later version, and I don't know how to install it lol, I am new to Linux. I got it to open in ARK, and then into Konquer and now I don't know what to do, there are INSTALL items, but when I click them, nothing happens.

if there is a file called INSTALL that is a text file, read that, there will be instructions how to install. Otherwise search here or google on how to install apps in mandrake. There are tons of posts for that.

1) You must have full configured source for the Linux kernel which you
want to use for the ALSA drivers. Note that ALSA drivers are part
of the kernel, so there is necessary to resolve all symbol dependencies
between the used kernel and ALSA driver code. Partly installed kernels
(for example from distributor makers) can be unuseable for this action.

2) You must turn on sound support (soundcore module).

3) Run './configure' script.

* General Options
If you do not want ISA PnP support, use --with-isapnp=no switch.
If you do not want sequencer support, use --with-sequencer=no switch.
If you do not want OSS/Free emulation, use --with-oss=no switch.
If you want to turn on debug mode, use --with-debug=full switch.
If you want to debug soundcard detection, try --with-debug=detect switch.

* Kernel Source Tree
On 2.4/2.6 kernels, the location of the kernel source tree is
parsed automatilly from the running kernel.
If it's not in the standard place, specify the path via
--with-kernel=<kernel_directory>.
On 2.6 kernels, the build directory has to be given via
--with-build=<kernel_build_dir> option additionally, too.

* Drivers to Compile
The card drivers to be compiled can be selected via --with-cards option.
Pass the card driver name without "snd-" prefix. To specify
multiple drivers, list names with comma (,).
Passing "all" will compile all possible drivers (and this is the
default choice).
Some drivers have compile options. They can be passed via
--with-card-options option. Multiple options can be passed with comma,
too. The default is "all".
For available cards and options, see ./configure --help.

* Example
./configure --with-debug=full
./configure --with-cards=sb16,emu10k1 --with-card-options=sb16-csp

4) Run 'make'.

5) Run 'make install' as root.
If you have already a system with ALSA init script, you should install
just only modules via 'make install-modules' so that the existing init
script won't be replaced.

6) Run the './snddevices' script to create new sound devices in /dev directory.
Skip this step, if you have already /dev/snd/* files, or if you're
using a DEVFS or udev.

7) Edit your kernel module config (either /etc/modprobe.conf or
/etc/modules.conf, depending on the kernel version).

8) Run 'modprobe snd-xxxx' where xxxx is the name of your card.
Note: All ALSA ISA drivers support ISA PnP natively, so you don't need
isapnptools any more. Don't use both together. It will
conflict. For disabling the ALSA ISA PnP support, specify
--with-isapnp=no configure switch.


That is what came up, I have no clue what any of it means, and are the terminal and a console the same ting? If not, where is a console?

ok, they seem pretty straight forward. The terminal and console are the same thing. Your soundcard is snd_ca0106. Just follow the instructions one step at a time.

When it says run the configure script, is that a file I can look for, or a terminal command, I can't do either.
