Hello! This is the first time I installed Vector Linux. I have C-Media 8738 as a soundcard and Intel Pro [Ethernet Pro 100]. VASM told me that it didn't detect a soundcard and when doing the network configuration, after writing my ip, gateway, netmask etc., when i try doing a ping to www.google.com
or any website it says Network Unreachable. I suppose it didn't detect my network card either.
In VASM, there is a section called Modules and i've uncommented this in the # Other network hardware drivers sections:
# Intel EtherExpress PRO/100 PCI support:
I also looked in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/ at the the ALSA-Configuration.txt, as the rc.modules file suggested. From what i understood (i'm a newbie so i don't really know how to configure alsa or how it actually works -- i know alsaconf doesn't detect my soundcard) the module snd-cmipci is for C-Media 8738 and it gave me these details about it (which i don't really understand) :
Module for C-Media CMI8338 and 8738 PCI soundcards.
mpu_port - 0x300,0x310,0x320,0x330, 0 = disable (default)
fm_port - 0x388 (default), 0 = disable (default)
soft_ac3 - Sofware-conversion of raw SPDIF packets (model 033 only)
(default = 1)
joystick_port - Joystick port address (0 = disable, 1 = auto-detect)
Since it's not working, i'm don't think i did right, but i added this line, at the end of the #Sound Support section in the rc.modules file: /sbin/modprobe snd-cmipci .
I suppose nothing i did was really right or complete. Could someone guide me through how to make my VL 4.3 detect my sound and network cards?
