Unhappy Mandrake 9.2, Boot process stops at Staring ALSA Version 0.9.6


Mandrake 9.2, Boot process stops at Staring ALSA Version 0.9.6

Just installed first boot and can't get past the above message whilst booting. From what I have read so far ALSA is a sound related problem. I have a Sony Laptop with a VIA AC97 chipset.

Any help or advice would be great

I forget which key it is, but when booting you will see a "press (x) for selective startup" or similar wording. Press that key and dont start alsa during bootup. Once booted, go into drakxservices and remove alsa from boot. After you have done that, you should be able to boot up just fine. Then you can figure out what you need to do to get your sound configured.

Hi, Got it up and running as advised, from the hardware config I have an entry for an Unknown/Other as follows:

Vendor: VIA Technologies
Bus: PCI
Bus identification: 1106:3068:104d:80f6
Location on the bus: 0:7:6
Description: VT82C686 [Apollo Super AC97/Modem]
Module: unknown
Media class: COMMUNICATION_OTHER

Is this possibly the problem? and how would I fix it? The entry for the sound card seems fine.

Thanks
Stever
