I'm new to Linux so bare with me please
, my only experience is about a week with RedHat 9.
I just installed Slackware 9.1 for the first time, the install went great (I think) when I logged into Gnome (is there a graphical login? I had to login and startx) I noticed the speaker with a red slash going through it at the top right of the screen, I clicked it and got this:
Couldn't open device mixer /dev/sound/mixer
I'm using the audio integrated on the A7N8X-E motherboard which according to asus.com is:
Realtek ALC650 6-Channel CODEC
Integrated APU(Audio Processor Unit)
Dolby Digital (AC-3) Encorder
S/PDIF in / out interface
Be gentle with me, if you need more info...also tell me how to get that info so I can give it to you
Thanks for any help.
EDIT: I think I figured out the login thing, I changed the default runlevel to 4 in /etc/inittab, tell me if I'm wrong...I'm affraid to reboot
