Unable to boot into Mandrake - ALSA driver loading problem
Hi, I have tried Mandrake 9.0 and Redhat 8.0. I have a Sound Blaster Live! Value sound card...and this is the problem:
For Mandrake 9.0: Despite installation is successful, my first boot failed because the system just hanged there while loading the ALSA sound drivers (which should appear as "OK" if loaded). I have tried booting several times, still the same.
For Redhat 8.0: Ok...nice interface and system...but there is no sound. It pops out a message saying that my sound server failed to load properly. I have tried to configure the sound card by going into admin panel...try to "enable" it but nothing happens.
So...quite upset (the world turns gloomy without sounds...), can anyone "diagnose" for me what could be the causes for this? Thanks!
