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.

Hi, I'm using Mandrake 9.1 and i have an Intel i810 ICH4 soundcard. I don't know what to do to get it work. I tried to install the last version of ALSA, but I couldn't.
If anybody could help me...
When I tried to install ALSA it printed an error saying that there was an operation not permited (no more information because it didn't say wich operation).
Not sound at all.
Linux knows that there is an Intel i810 ICH4 soundcard in my computer, but no sound exists.
Could it have been during the make install phase? You have to be root to do that. Do everything else as a normal user but run make install as root. After the whole thing is compiled you still have to insert the modules into the kernel, edit your /etc/modules.conf (or /etc/modprobe.conf for 2.6 kernels) to make them get inserted each time you boot and turn up the volume as by default all channels are muted.
I have the c.d. cable that you said plugged. But, for example, when I wan't to play mp3 or a c.d. or when I enter in a website with sounds or everything that include any kind of sound.
The XMMS plays the mp3 but I dont't hear nothing at all, the same happends with a c.d. and the other cases.
This is the message that returns when I want to install alsa driver:
rm -f /lib/modules/2.4.21/misc/snd*.*o /lib/modules/2.4.21/misc/persist.o /lib/modules/2.4.21/misc/isapnp.o

Well it looks like the files snd-hwdep.o, snd-page-alloc.o, snd-pcm.o, snd-rawmidi.o, snd-timer.o and snd.o don't exist in the current directory. Are you sure you didn't get any other errors during either ./configure or make?
