I just loaded up Slackware 9.1 onto my new machine - Athlon 2400+ and had a couple of problems, that I think should be simple to solve - although I could not work it out
1.) When a CDROM is loaded into the SAMSUNG CDRW, there is no icon on the desktop. I assume the cd is loaded as /dev/cdrom but I cannot gain access to the data on the CD. It seems to load the CDs ok - for example, the media players recognise the tracks. How can I get the CD icon on my slack desktop?
That leads into my next question ...
2.) I have no sound
.... I tried adjusting alsamixer and it recognised my card as: NVidia nForce 2, CHIP: Avance Logic id60, ITEM: CD. I was not exactly sure which setting to adjust in alsamixer, so I just turned them all up to max and unmuted. Then saved with alsactl store. No Sound
00.06.0 - multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Audio Controller (MCP) (rec a1).
Sound driver: 3.8.1a-980706
Card config: Nvidia nForce2 at 0xe0001000, irq11
I assume that the blue port on the motherboard is the correct output, although I tried all the other ports also.
Also tried KMix and some of the other KDE apps
3.) How do I shutdown? When I logout it closes Xwindows. How do I shutdown from the terminal.
