Hi rch

Your help has been of great value - thank you for the explanation (I had not changed the boot loader nor devfs).

I went to try Gnome, but it's broke! It wont start up and nor will Nautilus (a relocation error: /usr/lib/libpangoxft-1.0.so.0). But that'll have to be another fix. Maybe it's time to install Mandrake 9.1?

You made reference to "afferno" - what's that?

Thank you again.

Cheers

JohnG

click on the afferno button and you will know what afferno means
(through this you can make a voluntary contribution for some open source projects and/or add comments about any help that i may have given you)
remember that open source projects do also need some money to survive(like XFree86)
(if you do not want to :that is also ok)
do you want the solution of the gnome problem too?

Just found this thread and it completely solved my sound issue with mandrake 9.1, I was having trouble getting it to work after a clean install. Im new to linux and these forums are a great resource. Finally everything is up and running on my system.

thanks rch!

Hi Robin

Since our fault solving session, the system worked fine for a while, and then the fault occurred again! Running the script did not fix it, so I took the opportunity to upgrade to Mandrake 9.1. This solved a number of other problems (applications which did not want to install because of conflicts or dependancies) - so the Gnome problem is nolonger relevant.

But I note that the audio mixers (kmix, gmixer, aumix) nolonger have a record option on the master volume control. That means that recording can only be done on 'line' 'microphone' 'CD' phone' 'video' etc. Sometimes it is useful to be able to record off the master volume (which would be anything that can be heard.

Is there a way to restore this function?

KDE3.0 had a kmix configuration file named 'kmixrc' - but KDE3.1 does not have this file. I have not been able to find where the options are stored.

An 'undocumented' feature of 'kmix' is the ability to 'right-click' on 'kmix' to restore lost menu functions.

Cheers

Johng

Good news there!
Here I cannot get the Mandrake CDs so I am stuck with other distros.I can download the Mandrake ISOs at the university but the connection is not that reliable and I don't think I want Mandrake that badly.(Incidentally I downloaded Redhat 7.1 that way)

I don't have kde3.1 and never intent to use it either.
Mostly I use blackbox/gnome/icewm as I think KDE is 'crap'
So I don't know .
Maybe you will get your answers from
www.kde.org
