No sound and no wireless, pleaz help


Hey, as I sad in the last post I made i sad that I have just installed Linux Slackware 10.2, but I have som problems.

I arent geting sound. I got a Toshiba Satellite 10A, with a Intel 8x0, AC'97 sound card. This is integrated in the computer. I have tried google it but I cant find enything. So do enybody know how to fix this?

The second problem i got ist that I cant manage to find a driver for my wireless card. I got a D-Link DWL-G650+ wireless cardbus adapter. How do I get this to work? I have activated the carbus port but I cant find the driver and D-Link sucks at making linux drivers I realy dont think that they got any sadly.

And a last problem, this isent one I cant manage to find out by my self but I but it here anyway. How do I remap my keybord? I got a Norwegian one and the map now are english ewen if i remaped it when i installed Slackware.


Thanks for all answers.

For sound have you run the command ' alsamixer '?
If not run it and make sure volume levels are up on master and pcm channels. If there is a MM above it hit the M key to unmute the channel.

Post outptut of the commands
lspci
lsmod

For the dlink it looks like it needs the ndiswrapper driver so it uses the windows driver for it. Check the HCL section listed at the top and the right side of this page here and check the post others have done on the card.

Look through your startup messages. Run commnad ' dmesg ' and check the log to see if there are any erros listed like IRQ disabled or something.
