Two days ago I posted this from the other forum but I'm verry disappointed because no one iss replying my second question. Ok first I will tell you the scenario.
My first post:
I got here an ASUS P5PE-VM which has a Linux Drivers. My motherboard has only 3 drivers for Linux (audio, graphics, and network). For now I want to solve my problem regarding my audio driver. I'll post my other problems with my graphic and network drivers after this.
I put the CD of my ASUS and browse to the audio driver folder and the file name of the driver is "alsa-driver-0.9.ladi.tgz". I read the "README.txt" and in the installation part it's said that there are three basic commands needed to build the AC97 ALSA driver are summarize here.
I know the installation is not successful since I see some errors like "no", "Permission denied", and "Operation not permitted".
But what I don't know is, is/are the MARKS that indicates if the installation is successful. Can you give me some MARKS if the installation is successful or complete?
I don't know what I'm going to install seems it is looking for some libraries to complete the installation.
One member replied to my post and this was what he posted:
you shouldn't need to install drivers for your audio card, they should work out of the box in ubuntu (when i looked up what audio it has), you probably just need to adjust the mixer settings
to answer your other question
make: *** [compile] Error 1
means something went wrong, most of the time in linux, only error messages are output, not successful
My second post:
The drivers for Linux are already included in the CD. So why I shouldn't install the driver of my audio?
Sorry for the newbie question but I'm really novice to Linux.
After that no even one is replying my question.
