Fire up gnorpm and install it from your cds. Or, better yet, install apt4rpm and install with that.

Yes, do update twice, it's not a typo.

Now you can point and click to install if you want a pretty face for it. Now watch it resolve those depencencies you have had so much trouble with.

A Linux Google or a board search will probably turn up something for your sound card.

If it's not in apt-get, you can always search rpmfind

After you get gcc installed, you can compile source code as well.

/usr/src/linux-<version number>

Try this and make sure you installed it:

cd /usr/src
ls -alc

If you have it installed, the compile will probably find it if you make a symbolic link named linux that points to that directory.

cd /usr/src
ln -s linux-<version number> linux

That is a good point. However it is no longer necessary for those people using RH8 or 9 it was a bug that has since been fixed in newer versions of apt4rpm. Just wanted to let people know.

Take care FancyP!
