problems after an update


Hi Everyone,
I did an update earlier using RPMDrake for the first time on my Mandrake box. I updated a lot of programs since it was the first update since I installed mandrake (about 350mb worth). The update went perfect (or so i thought). After the update completed i tried to open a program by pressing "start" (not sure what to call that button in linux) and I noticed that there was nothing where the program menus would normally be. I thought it was weird, but I figured it may fix itself if I restarted.....wrong! I rebooted and in the process of restarting it freezes at:

Starting ALSA Version1.0.6: intel8x0

If anyone has any idea what may have happened your input is most welcome.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

If it installed a newer kernel, try booting with the older one (should be in your grub bootup screen).

When i restart i am presented with the following options:
-linux
-2427-0pre21
-failsafe
-windows

Does that look normal? Anyway I chose the second option. When it booted it [FAILED] while trying to start some services but it scrolled too fast to catch them. I was able to log in, but I couldn't connect to the internet and some other things just didn't seem right. I restarted again and chose linux as I normally would. This time I used interactive setup and chose not to start ALSA, which is where it was hanging. After that it loaded just fine. I have no idea what the significance of this is. I know ALSA is Advanced Linux Sound Architecture, but thats about it. I obviously have no sound now since I chose not to start that service. I'm wondering what I can do to remedy the situation. Thanks in advance for your help.

My kernel is 2.6.8.1-12mdk and i am using ALSA version 1.0.6 intel8x0

Hi everyone,
Anybody have any ideas? The only way i can log in is to go into interactive startup and choose not to start the sound service. Thanks for the replies.

The only thing I could think of is to compile your own kernel. I have always had problems with Mandrake's kernels.
