Exclamation That ticks me

He started two new threads. I can't get the stupid search thing so I can put a link. It says no matches. I saw the links you silly puter. It's to late for this crap.

I'll find it and poke it in the puters eye. May find a few other places to poke it too.



I feel a rant coming here.

I don't know the first thing about rpm's.I'd get the source for the drivers and install those - at least you'll get some error messages that make sense if they fail to compile but you could open up a whole new can of worms there about missing compilers and stuff.

Thats just my bad - I don't really know a lot about rpm's.What I do know is that they give you either cryptic error messages or none at all and still don't work like right now.If you install a tarball you normalllly get at least a error message that makes sense (well most of the time anyway).

right ok i'll use those. I have to say for an installer format its really not very handy as it doesn't tell u where its going where its been or what its done or whether its finished or not, hence my comment about installers easlier :P

Linux needs a proper executable installer format, similar to the msi on windows and has all the features of the windows installer

" you reckon i should use the tarball?"

One option is to use checkinstall to create a rpm from the tarball. The procedure is
./configure
make
checkinstall

Well - actually you'll know a lot more about what is getting installed where when you compile from source then you'd know when you install a M$ app.Of course installing from source is not everybodys cup of tea but it does have advantages.

Have a look at the gentoo howto for alsa installation.Of course the way you'll build it is different but the configuration part is very good.
