As interesting as that sounds, I don't spend much money very often. Spending a little over $1.25 and hour this time sounds fine.

Though, I am interested. OSS = Operating System Source? What is the gist of what I would have to do? What kind of compiler would have to be used? I have a 3 disc version of 10.0 Community. That's not all of them, on installation I have a request for a fourth, that and the others that may possibly follow could be source.

EDIT: Maybe I can do this. I had sound before on another LinuxOS, I can have it here. I've had a change of heart. I'm ready to give 4 hours.
Again, thank you for all your responses.

Open Source Sound as opposed to Advanced Linux Sound Architecture, the oss modules were the standard up to and through kernel 2.4.x, Mandrake and SuSe have shipped with ALSA instead for years. An oss module will load fine on an alsa equipped kernel, its no worry... the Linuxant drivers can get a little involved, and I'm not certain that they're entirely free either... but post back if you get stuck trying to install em.

Cheers,

I installed the generic rpm package for Suse, Redhat, Mandrake, etc since there is not kernel specific one.

Here's the contents of modules.conf, it seems that I have nothing sound related in here:

Code:
probeall scsi_hostadapter imm ppa
options i810fb xres=800 hsync1=32 hsync2=48 vsync1=50 vsync2=70 vram=2 bpp=16 accel=1 mtrr=1
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci
alias eth0 8139too

The problem you mentioned is below. I will try to find source and compilers in the addsoftware rpmdrake. I have kernel source for the new 2.6.*** kernel. Though I'm running the 2.4.25-2 Kernel.
I searched both "source" and "src."
Code:
[root@ user]# ripconfig
Linux RIPTIDE audio/communication drivers, version 0.6lnxtbeta03122800

WARNING: this is an EXPERIMENTAL BETA VERSION of the RIPTIDE drivers for Linux.

If you require assistance or need more information, go to:

When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "ripconfig --dumpdiag".

(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
[/usr/src/linux] /usr/src/linux

WARNING: missing file /usr/src/linux/include/linux/autoconf.h
The cause of this problem is usually a missing or misconfigured
kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).

First, ensure that the proper kernel source and compiler packages
from your distribution vendor and/or the community are installed.

The Linux kernel can then be reconfigured by running "make menuconfig"
under the kernel source directory (usually /usr/src/linux).

Verify that the proper options for your system are selected,
and that CONFIG_SMP ("Symmetric multi-processing support" under
"Processor type and features") is disabled, as this driver is
presently designed to work on single-processor machines.

Then compile and install your new kernel (for more information about
this procedure, see the README file under the kernel source directory),
reboot the system using the new kernel, and re-run "ripconfig".

Nope, kernel source... build -> is a symbolic link to a directory within /usr/src/linux/somewhere.... Check the install disks, or whatever the software GUI install thing for Mandrake is these days and it'll take care of dependencies.

Well, I installed the Creative Labs ES1371 PCI Sound Card I purchased and removed the only 2-PCI slot audio-modem combo card. I plugged in an HP audio-cable that slits into two speakers(present) and a subwoofer(not present). The outlets are a microphone symble an arrow up and an arrow down. I've been testing sound but I get nothing. The Harddrake detected my new card.

hmmm, alsa's first and neatest trick is muted mixer setting accross the board on a new card. After checking that, what have you got for /sbin/lsmod?

Cheers

Nope Mandrake hasn't seen that puppy... Aight, open a Konsole, the little terminal thingy with the seashell (not trying to be a jackass here, just as careful as possible you know), type:

su -
(enter root password)
alsaconf

That'll lead you through the steps... hopefully it'll give you the option of configuring an es1371 (and legacy ISA blah blah blah, ignore the ISA option)...

Then after the proggy is done, in the same terminal, fire up:

alsamixer

and Un-mute anything that looks important... alsa mixer isn't necessary, under the "K" -> multimedia -> there will probably be a number of mixers, most notably, kmix that'll do the same thing and be a little more gui friendly.

Cheers,

Finegan

Hmm, alsaconf doesn't run under root in terminal. I did touch the kernel configuration a while ago. I'm not sure if alsa is even enabled anymore. OSS could just be running now. I can't access the kernel config menu by:

su
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

I'm willing to lose all RPM, update, and customization progress and clean install 10.0 CE again( still waiting for Official!). Can I someone keep my /home partition the way it is now for use in the new / partition? If so, how? My current partitioning is /, SWAP, /home for MDK 10.0 CE

Okay, the Creative Labs ES1371 PCI Sound Card is running; but, my sound is bad. The sound is playing a very low quality and the volume is set high but is not playing as loud as it can. I'm playing tracks at 128k and 196k. How can I optimize my sound?

Are your speakers plugged into your headphone jack? If so, you will loose a lot of quality. You may want to try all the jacks to see which one works best.

I only have three options plus this wierd serial-looking plug. Only one of them works... There are two speakers plugged into a spliter with a Left, Right, and Subwoofer outlet. I plugged them into left and right and the device into the sound card.

Check your mixer settings. Are you speakers powered through the sound jack or do they have their own AC? PCM, CD, regular volume, tweak around and see what you get.

Cheers,
