setup of slackware sound blaster card and setting network configs that write out


i have a dell desktop with a sound blaster card:
lspci:
01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy LS
lsmod:
01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy LS

how do i configure this sound blaster to work?

how do i save the changes to the wireless network?

i can manually configure it and get the wlano working. but it does not on boot up?

i have some ntfs drives fstab:
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda1 /sata1 ntfs-3g umask=000 1 0
/dev/sdb1 /sata2 ntfs-3g umask=000 1 0

i can not get them to auto mount. i can mount them by:
mount /dev/sda1 /sata1
mount /dev/sdb1 /sata2

how to fix the automount??

Has the kernel picked it up, do you see any modules
relevant to alsa sound loaded?
Code:
lsmod

What steps are you taking to get it going manually?

Sorry - I don't know, I don't have any ntfs devices
to test it with.


I'll move the thread over to our slackware forum for
better exposure.



Cheers,

The fstab seems OK, the only difference from mine is that I use umask=022
Check /var/log/messages and see if it says anything about the mounting process.

Does mounting with
Code:
mount -a
work?

For wireless networking, see this.
http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...eless_networks
or else try wicd. knetwork is not compatible with Slackware networking scripts.

For sound: Pinched from http://www.vcn.bc.ca/~dugan/setting-up-slackware.html

On your automount problem, are you running a -huge kernel or a -generic kernel? Perhaps your kernel does not have support for your disk when mount is initially called, but can subsequently load a module at the completion of boot.

The sound blaster module should be emu10k, but for dell oem's there is a different emu10k module (emu10k1?, something like that). Follow allend's post and that should get your sound working.
