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.

so this is how it goes...
i have the famous P4PE (similar to P800E) chipset asus mbo with onboar soundcard (Ac'97; intel8x0).
and, of course, no sound...
so the solution would be: uninstall all the sound drivers, download new ones (including libreries and utilities) and install them; open alsamixer and unmute surround. quite simple, no?
BUT, i installed new alsa drivers without deleting old ones - which probably created some conflics...what i did after was delete every file having to do something with alsa (only sound, not balsa or similar) and reinstalled new drivers
./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install
everything went well until
modprobe snd-intel8x0;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
it FAILED.don't know why, could use some help. oh, another thing: before ther was no alsamixer command, now there is (but:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device). and there's no snd device file...
what should i do NOW?
thanx guys(and girls, if there are...)
i've checked them out: half our with my posts and the other half is so messy i didn't understand anything.
i did whereis modprobe
modprobe: /sbin/modprobe.old /sbin/modprobe /usr/share/man/man8/modprobe.8.bz2
i didn't like it very much - what is old doing here?
i als did whereis lsmod
lsmod: /sbin/lsmod.old /sbin/lsmod /usr/share/man/man8/lsmod.8.bz2
that's bad, right?
pleas, if you could write down what sohuld i do, it'd really be great...thanx...
