Thanks for trying. I'm sorry to say I either didn't understand what I was looking at or just didn't find anything to help me. I know next to nothing about linux. I tried reading the starter guide at http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/fdoc.php3
, but didn't find anything helpful. I don't know where to look for information about how to fix the problem or even to find out what my problem is.
If anyone can help, here is more information. I am playing around in the hardware section of the control center. I tried running the configuration tool and found the troubleshooting section. I opened the Gnome terminal and entered some of the commands listed.
I typed in "/sbin/chkconfig --list sound" and got:
sound 0 off 1 off 2 on 3 on 4 on 5 on 6 off
I don't have a clue what that means, but the off's could be bad?
I typed in "/sbin/chkconfig --list alsa" and got:
alsa 0 off 1 off 2 off 3 off 4 off 5 off 6 off
i typed in "aumix -q" and the command was not found
