I'm having a go at Slackware, after last using it some 10 years ago (version 2-ish) as my introduction to linux
. My my, how the baby has grown
. I must say I'm quite impressed with it so far, giving it a good shakedown now, having to seriously consider if I want to continue on with the "Debian way" (looking forward to the chaos in testing/unstable after release lol!), or come back to the roots. I'm following shilo's guide, which is very good, and the reason I decided to revisit Slack. So far I cruised through the initial install, installing dropline (oooooh drool), and used swaret to update to current. Now, before I updated with swaret, I ran alsaconf, and it smoothly detected and setup my sound card (Santa Cruz Turtle Beach - cs46xx), and I was very happy with the sound performance. After the update using swaret, it is not loading the module, says something to the effect of can't find the snd-cs46xx file, if I knew which file that was logged in I could get the exact error. It's late, I'm burned out and ready for bed. Anything sound familiar? Any clues? I can post any file content needed... in the morning hehe. I appreciate any help offered. I was getting real enthused about Slackware, but this minor setback dampened it a tiny bit, not much, but I'm tired hehe. Looking forward to another day, and hopefully an easy fix. Maybe I just need to start with upgrading my kernel first? It's running 2.4.29 (I think.. foggy). Just weird to me that it would stop working like that.
