Sound & HD problems - help


I am using the KDE desktop and I'm not able to locate my NTFS drive on D:/
I have just switched to Linux, and I need access to that drive to get my webserver files off it so I can get apache running. Also, my Crystal 16bit sound card wont work either.

Can anyone help me out? I'm used to clicking on My computer... lol

to try to get your sound card working in session as root type alsaconfig. It should reconize your card.

I'll see if I can help with your "NTFS drive not showing up" problem. Mandrake automatically set my Windows drive up for me, so maybe it's set up for you too.

Well, first open a terminal (konsole is a good one... should be in the kde menus).

Type "less /etc/fstab" Do you see anything about your windows drive there? Something about ntfs, or windows? If so, the directory where your Windows drive is mounted should be in the second collumn of that row - that's the way it is on Slackware anyway. Just go in the filemanager to that directory, and you should see your Windows files. (Did that make sense? Sorry if I'm being too confusing.)

If not, I'll try and help you get it set up manually.

AFAIK Mandrake doesn't come with a kernel with NTFS support enabled. This was true for 9.0 (The last version I used before switching Slackware) iirc. I might be wrong thouhg

I got the hard drive loaded... But that alsaconfig keeps saying it does not exist or bash something what ever, it's not a command... I don't understand your method. I even tried putting in my Aztech card and it does not work either... I need sound really bad, it's part of my work...

Are you sure it's not SNDCONFIG? That one brings up a sound card detection screen but it asked me to put in some IRQ numbers, and I don't know what they are so it wont work.

[root@cm447 root]# alsaconfig
bash: alsaconfig: command not found




and now my KDE wont load desktop icons or a normal task bar under root, only gnome has a full layout...

I tried every possible combination and none of them worked. I found out that this is a known bug described here:

http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/...g.cgi?id=88847

The problem I'm having is I don't know how to install that "patch". Is it just a matter of manually editing the *.c file in questions and recompiling it? I looked at the file referened (ad1848.c) and it appears to be already "patched". Here is is my ad1848.c file:

2968 {"OPL3-SA2 WSS mode",
2969 ISAPNP_ANY_ID, ISAPNP_ANY_ID,
2930 ISAPNP_VENDOR('Y','M','H'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0021),
2931 1, 0, 0, 1, 1},
2932 {"AZT1008",
2933 ISAPNP_ANY_ID, ISAPNP_ANY_ID,
2934 ISAPNP_VENDOR('A','Z','T'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0001),
2935 1, 0, 0, 1, 1},
2936 {0}
2937 };
....
....
2979 static struct isapnp_device_id id_table[] __devinitdata = {
2980 { ISAPNP_VENDOR('C','M','I'), ISAPNP_DEVICE(0x0001),
2981 ISAPNP_VENDOR('@','@','@'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0001), 0 },
2982 { ISAPNP_ANY_ID, ISAPNP_ANY_ID,
2983 ISAPNP_VENDOR('C','S','C'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0000), 0 },
2984 { ISAPNP_ANY_ID, ISAPNP_ANY_ID,
2985 ISAPNP_VENDOR('C','S','C'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0100), 0 },
2986 { ISAPNP_ANY_ID, ISAPNP_ANY_ID,
2987 ISAPNP_VENDOR('Y','M','H'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0021), 0 },
2988 { ISAPNP_ANY_ID, ISAPNP_ANY_ID,
2989 ISAPNP_VENDOR('A','Z','T'), ISAPNP_FUNCTION(0x0001), 0 },

Now maybe I don't know how to read "diff" output, or those changes are already in the file.

Do I need to edit the config file? Here is a portion of it:

#
# Sound
#
CONFIG_SOUND=m


I'm assuming that's ONE thing I need to change to "y", but there are many other variables that I have no idea which ones need changed.

My kernel is 2.4.20-30.9 and I'm using RH9.

Thanks.
