the difference ??
You may be right, but the stuff posted here is not a resolution, and it is very frustrating, when one applies advice, and cannot recover system after reboot. I am ignorant to a lot of the inner workings of the linux platform, but I have been good about learning, and deciphering the good from the bad.
Anywayz, yes I am using i810_audio (unless it was removed from the system when I installed the nividia drivers). I don't know. I gave up the other day, and switched backed to windows for a bit, until I can gather my thoughts, and get linux to be functional, not just semi-functional.
When I added the line '/sbin/modprobe nvaudio' to my rc.local file, it caused the boot up to freeze just near the end. There was a long message describing the search for the i810_audio module, then about two or three lines later, bam!!, the freeze up. Does this happen when a module can't be found? Is the module there?
FYI: I am on an MSI K7N420 Pro motherboard, onboard everything, AMD Athlon 2100 XP cpu, and running Redhat 7.3.
