Fresh install Slackware 12.2 on HP dv3-2155mx


Intel Core2 Duo Processor T6500
800MHz system bus, 2MB L2 cache and 2.1GHz processor speed per core.
4GB DDR2 memory
Multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW (DVD+R DL) supports LightScribe direct-disc labels = ?(Does *NIX support LightScribe?)
500GB SATA hard drive (5400 rpm)
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD up to 1759MB total available graphics memory
Altec Lansing speakers with SRS Premium Sound
Touch media controls and HP Mobile remote
13.3" high-definition(1366 x 768) widescreen display
Built-in webcam
5-in-1 media reader
Supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD Picture Card formats.
2 high-speed USB 2.0 ports
Built-in wireless LAN (802.11b/g)
Built-in 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition operating system with Service Pack 1= Banished, sent into exile.
I originally installed Kubuntu(64bit) 9.04 and was going to stick with that until Slackware64 was stable.
Only thing is that I couldn't get sound working.
Really long story short, I start all over again.
This time with 12.2
Now I have no sound, no wireless or wired internet connection.
That's what I got so far.
Here is what I want to do.
I am going to to be traveling a lot.
This has to be my everything machine.
Business and pleasure.
If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great or if someone who is in the 21122 zip code that's willing to meet up and walk me through this would be even better.
Anyhow, tell me what you think.

For sound run as root in a terminal, alsaconf then open a mixer such as amixer,kmix or aumix and then run alsactl store.

For the wired network connection run netconfig as root.

Wireless is an arcane subject best left for others to help you with as I don't have a wireless card.

Oh boy! The list could be endless. For a start you could post the output of lspci (as root) and groups (as user).

Hi,

Whenever you are configuring your system use the 'cli'. Stay away from 'KDE' to setup your hardware.

As root from the cli you should have done 'alsaconf' then 'alsamixer' to setup the mixer. Once done you use 'esc' to exit the mixer then do a 'alsactl store'.

For the wireless you can use 'Configuring your network in Slackware' by Alien_Bob.

The above link and others available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just Slackware® links!

Thank you onebuck.
Seeing how I already tried to configure using an x-term in KDE.
Should I do it again from the command line? or do I start from scratch and reinstall starting with disk 1?

Here is a solution posted on an ubuntu forum modified for slackware
Quote:
The solution is quite simply.
First:
nano /etc/modprobe.d/sound

Then add the following to the end of the file:
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
it should now look something like this.
Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv3
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
Hope this works.

You can exit 'KDE' and start the configuration as detailed. 'samac' gave you some possible solutions.

As I stated before you should not rely on 'KDE' or any other environment to configure your system. By using the 'cli' you know what is being done.

Glad that it now is sort of working, if you were able to get on the internet you could search for snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv3 and maybe get some hints on improving the sound.

On a the network front, run lsmod as root and look for r1000. That is the module required by your on-board network device. If it is not there try, again as root on the command line,
Code:
modprobe r1000
then do the netconfig thing again.

Another command that can help network card diagnostics is
Code:
ifconfig -a
this will report what network devices are attached.

It looks like your eth0 card is showing a mac address, but you haven't got a kernel module to drive it. You can download on at the Realtek site here is a link. I have never had to compile a module so I am not 100% sure of the procedure so I would suggest downloading the correct driver and then searching for compile module slackware. That should get you started.
