Ok. Brand new linux user here. (Red Hat 9) Going on about a day and a half now. I did a TON
of reading and I managed to make it through the install and got the NVidia drivers installed.
Learning emacs from the command line was not fun.
Trying to figure out how to boot into a command prompt wasn't fun either.
I should probably call it a night before I get fustrated, but I thought that I'd post this before I crashed for the night.
I am not sure where to start really. I don't have any sound. Anywhere. My sound card is recognized as an "ES 1371 (AudioPCI-97) by Ensoniq," so hopefully that's alright.
How do I tell if the CD that I am trying to play is mounted correctly? I ask because when I open the CD player, it does nothing and the drive does not spin up. I tried to look at the CD in Grip and it just said, "No Disc."
So, it's like I said, I really don't even know where to begin. All of the hardware performs correctly in Windows 98SE.
If I have omitted any information that might assist you all in helping me out, just let me know.
Thanks in advance for all the help!
