Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

ok, so it was time for a reinstall, so i did just that. i reinstalled slackware 8.1, as usual without any problems. the first thing i did next is compile a custom kernel. after all of that, i reboot, and everything is fine. ok, so time for some sound. when i configured my kernel, the only thing i said yes to in the sound section is sound support. i said no to everything else, thinking i didn' need any of it since i was going to use ALSA. i try to make alsa, but it wont even get started, saying something about no rule to make blah..... i did make dep, then make, and it worked perfectly. i did make install, rebooted and loaded the appropriate sound module, snd-intel8x0, again with no errors. but there is no sound. gnome loads error free. lsmod shows that all the necessary modules are loaded. the only thing i could find were these lines from dmesg:
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:1f.5
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 00:1f.6
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 00:1f.5 to 64
ALSA ../../alsa-kernel/pci/ac97/ac97_codec.c:1852: MC'97 1 converters and GPIO not ready (0xff00)
intel8x0: clocking to 48000
does anyone know what the problem is?
did i omit something important when configuring my kernel?
