Going from Windows expert to Linux Newbie was going great till I decided to do an ID 10 t error. (If you don't get it squish it together)
I just got this computer as a gift, Linux already installed and ready to go. Worked great.
I love it! I decided to see if I could run MIRC and The Sims on it (only windows programs I'd ever miss) So I went to google for a windows emulator and found Cadgea(Sp?) I couldn't make it work. some random guy on some random website said his was fixed when he entered a certain command so I did that too.
(I did not write down the command, remember what it was or know what it does! Searched my history but can't seem to find the site again.
Immeadiately my CD rom would then only eject from clicking on the eject button in the CD player (would not open from the button)
Then I found wine... Installed it and happily am using mirc.
I gave up on the Sims, decided it wasn't worth it and quit messing around. but after I rebooted.. no sound worked at all and I can't even eject from the cd player.
I didn't install this, don't have disks from it and don't know how to check to see what kind of hardware I have or even what distro I have (login screen says Fedora Core but I dunno if it's 3 or 4 or whatever) The application menu has a footprint icon on it (Quite Cute) So I'm betting that tells you something about what I've got on here?
I really hope someone can help me fix this.. I'm very sad without my sound or CD-ROM drive.
