On the bottom line (presume that you use the default KDE) there is an icon that looks like a "spanner".

That's the mandrake control centre.

Or

The "K" menu>what do you want to do>administer the system>mandrake control centre.

then try either system or hardware

and see if you can't get by with following the prompts

regards

John

awh, the console is your friend

ok, kicker (start menu), configuration, kde, sound, sound system. then go to the i/o options. choose auto detect and then apply. then go to kicker, multimedia, aumix and adjust the volumes.

that should help some.

cheers

mandrake control centre in 9.1>click icon>hardware on left column - click icon>first icon in left column is hardware - click icon>list of detected hardware should show "soundcard" (in my case it shows SB live! soundcard) - I would then click on that and that then opens another dialogue window on the right with the soundcard info, at the bottom you should then see a "configure module" button and a "run config tool" button.

Provided your system shows a "soundcard" detected, then you should be able to do the config from there?

The only caveat being that if your system only has AC97 onboard sound facilities, then you could have some problems - that's why I bought the SB live! soundcard - I had no end of difficulties setting up the AC97 onboard chip - it was a real pain!.

hope this is of some help.

regards

John
