No audio hardware identified
I am very new to Linux based operating system & have just installed Kubuntu 5.10 onto an old Compaq SFF Dopens 450Mhz machine. Unfortunatly it does not identify the audio hadware & comes up with an error message as follows.
Sound server informational message:
error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't opened (no such file or directory)
the sound server will continue, using the null output device
I believe the onboard hardware is ES1869 Plug & play audio Drive WDM (I have another unit running windows XP)
The hardware may be old & slow but they are perfect for P2P as are quiet & can be left running 24/7 so would realy love to get linux running on em instead of windows.
