Unhappy Slackware 11 in a Compaq Presario V6000


I made a tutorial about it in spanish at http://www.michael-pratt.com


Hi there!
Ive been using slackware since 10.0 and had no problems with it so far, until i bought myself a Compaq presario V6000.

I downloaded the 11.0 Version of slackware and installed it without any problems. I used the 2.6.18 Kernel that is provided within the installation disks.

First i had problems with my wifi card (a broadcom integrated card), and installed the "bcmwl5" windows driver via "ndiswrapper" and it works fine.

Then i had some trouble with the resolution/Intel integrated graphics (1280x800), with help of the script called "915resolution" i managed to get it working fine, and everything is looking great!

Now im having 2 little problems, that ive been trying to get around, but still without success:

1) Headphone jack does not work, allthough the speakers work fine. The main problem is that when i plug the headphones in, the sound still comes out of the speakers! I get no sound in my headphones!

2) I have a integrated network card, but it does not get recognized. The Ifconfig shows only the wlan0 and a sit0 device. Ive googled up the sit0 and ive found out, that the sit0 device is related with IPV6 and the kernel.

Can someone give me a hand here? ive searched all over the web, and found a few tips, that didnt worked for me.

If the only way to fix this is compiling a custom kernel, i have a small question, can i use the current source (2.6.18), use the current config of the kernel and just add/remove the things i need?

Thank you all!

Not sure about the headphone problem. With regards to your network card, it appears from your lsmod output that the kernel module isn't loaded. Try a "modprobe e100" or "modprobe eepro100" and see if that helps. Both drivers are for the same chipset and both are built as modules in this kernel.

Thanks alot! That did the trick! I remember that i tried with the "modprobe eepro100" but that didint worked for me But with "modprobe e100" it works like a charm, i allreadey added that command to my rc.modules

I already tried with alsamixer, but without success. My alsamixer, only gives me the "master" and "PCM" controls.

I have a question though, what do you mean by: "having jack sense off"?

The soundcard that alsaconf recognizes is:
(hda-intel) 82801G (ICH7) High Definition Audio

And ive tried adding "modprobe snd-hda-intel position_fix=1" to the rc.modules, without success !

As i said above, the main problem with my soundcard is that when i plug my Headphones, the sound still comes out of the speakers

I fixed my problem with the soundcard!
I downloaded, compiled and installed the new ALSA driver (1.0.14rc3?) and Alsa-lib! That worked like a charm!
I compiled the Driver with the options:

./configure --with-oss=yes --with-cards=hda-intel
make
make install

Question Installing Linux on COMPAQ PresarioV6000

Hi buddies,
I want to have dual boot on my COMPAQ Presario V6000 laptop. Windows is working fine. I have left about 20 GB free space for linux. Fine!

But I am really stuck in installing any distribution of Linux on my laptop.
I tried Ubuntu, Suse 10, Fedore Core 2. Nothing works....When I was trying Suse, I saw a message that asked me to try Suse 64-bit. Then I downloaded Fedore Core 6 64-bit but its in vain. The problem seems like that my hard disk has problem in creating partitions. First i selected automatic partions on free space. It did not work. Then i tried to create manual partition. It just allows me create only 1 partition either swap or root. if i try another one...ıt says not enough space but infact there is sufficient space. Please guide me to install any distribution of linux. Thanks
