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.

My sound works fine with headphones, but not with my speakers. I have altec lansing 4.1 speakers that I bought with a dell years ago, and now they're hooked up to my new Shuttle Athlon box. the hook-ups were a little weird, and only the stereox2 setting worked with windows, but it worked. Now, with linux, not so much. Anyone know anything?
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
Hi Chapin, welcome to lq. We'll need to know how you connect the speakers to the computer. The output from /sbin/lspci -v would also help with resaerch on your card. Have you tried adjusting some things on one or more of your mixers?
my speakers have three cords, a center, surround and digital that plug into the integrated sound card on the motherboard. as far as /sbin/lspci-v, i'm a complete and total n00b, and so don't know what that is... yet. i did everything i possibly could with the mixers, so, if you tell me how to answer the second question, i'll get right on it. after i post about firefox being on strike...
