My sound card dosn't work please help!
Hello, I have just started into my linux career and I decided to start with slackware because I like a challange and I had hered that it was very customizable, I have had very few problomes that I have not been able to solve by ether googling it or just thinking about it, but this one has me stumped. My computer is a custom box that uses a MSI KT3 Ultra 2 mother board that has a Realtek ALC650 sound chip built in. When I first got it they sent me a cd that had all the drivers for the windows which worked fine for when I run windows but of course those drivers dont work now. I went to the RealTek site and got the drivers that they provided for linux and belive that I got them installed right because the error message that KDE was gone (the message said the KDE could not open /dev/dsp becuse it did not exsist, but it was really there) so with the message gone I reset the mixer volumes like it told me to in the readme file and there was still no sound, is one of my configuration files for it wrong or is my chip just being stupid? Please help
