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
I did what you said and went and got the alsa files and installed them and got the sound working but now my cdrom drive wont mount even though it did before the sound stuff was installed what should I do?
Sorry it completly escaped my mind to post the error that i was getting,
the error is :
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
in the ftab file the system type is set to iso9660 which worked before the sound card started working I also did the permisions thing that you posted and came up with this
root@Cortana:~# ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Sep 19 03:09 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdd
root@Cortana:~# ls -l /dev/scd0
brw-r----- 1 root disk 11, 0 Jul 18 1994 /dev/scd0
I really apperciate all the help you have given me thankyou
