First off I got to say that I am a newbie to Linux, so I hope you be a little specific when you try to help.
The problem is that I don't have sound in Slack, so I searched through this forum for any answers, and found out that I will need to set the sound manually through either a kernel recompile or modprobe.
I decided to recomplie my kernel, and this is what I did:
everything went fine, and when I go back to KDE the sound works, but my internet doesn't work. After I check the messages that appear once you boot up the machine I notice this:
unable to probe pcnet_cs to socet 1: not authroized
The internet works when I first install Salckware, so I don't know what is going wrong after I recomplie, and I am sure that I use the right driver for the network card.
I was hoping if some one has any links to show me how to do the modprobe setup of the sound or explain how to do it, or if they have any ideas on maybe how to fix the internet once I do a kernel recompile.
Also I got to point out that I don't have any other computers so if internet goes down the only way is to do a complete reinstall of slack. So I am hoping to get a couple replies before trying to do anything.
