You could check the image file that it was downloaded completely and there isn't any errors.

Did you download the DVD-image or CD images?

Sounds like there's something wrong with the DVD. Either in the ISO itself or some error in burning process.

Whenever you download a large file like that, it's best to check the resultant file against a hash to ensure a proper download. For instance, had you downloaded slackware-12.0-install-d1.iso from one of the mirrors listed on slackware.com there would also be a file slackware-12.0-install-d1.iso.md5 which would contain the md5sum of the image (which looks like this:477504f499ab6c4cc08485ddb2084b81). On your downloaded system (assuming linux) you would simply type:
Code:
md5sum [filename]
and the hash will be printed for you. Then you compare the two and voila, now you know you've downloaded an uncorrupted image. Next, when you burn the image, you can (and should) again use the md5sum command to make sure that the image was burned without error. This is an option inside of k3b but can just as easily be accomplished from the command line.

Finally if you're straining to break the bonds of your M$ operating system, I recommend a free/open source program called hashtab that will do the trick. Good luck!!

Maybe your download of DVD has a little corrupt.
Or, your burning process has some error.

Did you burn with option: burn image to disc, or you just extract content of ISO file to disc ?

Well, technically this should be a separate thread (after you've already done a search to make sure no one else has asked the questions before) but in the interest of being helpful I'll do my best to answer.

The quickest and easiest way to manage sound in Slackware (assuming everything else is properly configured) is with the 'alsamixer' command. Again, assuming your card is recognized by the kernel, all you need do now is pump up the volume. Two things to remember are hit 'm' to toggle mute and change the levels on both the 'Master' control and the 'PCM' control. Once you have the volume where you want it, the command 'alsactl store' will save the levels through a reboot, otherwise the silence will be back. Good luck!!

Remember, new issues = new threads unless there is already a thread open for that issue (which a search will reveal).

Hi,


Part right.

The OP may need to run 'alsaconf' to setup for the sound if the device is not recognized. Once the proper device is configured then run the 'alsamixer' to unmute the desired options to then set the volume levels. Once that is done then do a 'alsactl store'.

which, for me at least, it usually is. Thank you, however, for the additional information. Now if alsamixer doesn't work, he already knows what the next step is.
