Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well here it is ... I am running SuSe 8.2 as of 2 weeks ago everything is going good but so far i have wasted every single waking minute of spare time tryin to configure the audio. I am running ia creative ensoniq audio pci card(i know it s ild but it is only for multi media). I have tried virtually everything, Yast says " the number of configured cards dosen't match the number of configured cards in the config file" however when asked twhether i would like yast to try and restart the sound system it fails, and it is not compatible with ALSA. I have tried running a script in file:/etc/init.d/boot.local still no lluck.
If it helps it is on IRQ 5 and i am running dual boot with windows XP.
Please if possible keep it simple i am proficient with windows but very new to linux.
or you could open yast2, remove all sound cards,then exit, (suseconfig will re-write the soundconfig) then run yast2 again and let it have another try at finding your card. i run an ensonic 5880 with no problems.
does your bios let you assign the usb to a specific irq? if so put it on 11. does your motherboard have sound support? thats been known to cause problems with pci sound cards, disable it if you have it.
My bios dosen't allow me much functionality like you mention ( to change IRQ's) and no MoBo sound support. I s there a way under suse to change the assignment of IRQ's ? Also is IRQ 5 the default for pci sound cards? I have an old ISA sound card i think i am going to put in and hopefully put an end to this problem.
mine is on 5, whether thats standard or not i don't know, my usb shares 11 with my scsi card. is there a "update ecsd(escd?)" option in your bios? you'll want to set that to yes every time you add or remove a card from the pci bus, to give the bios a chance to re-assign irq's. you may want to try that.
