Some questions


Hi. This is my first time running slackware. I really like it. I installed slack from the CD and installed dropline gnome after. It really looks great. But there are some problems:
I need danish keys on my keyboard! I need sound on my VIACXXXX sound chipset. I need X to start automatically. So.
1. How do I configure slack to use danish keys?
2. How do I enable sound?
# 3. How do I start X automatically at boot? Answered.

I'll take the easy one, no.3

edit /etc/inittab

where you see

# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:3:initdefault:

change the 3 to a 4

ok, go to
/etc/rc.d/rc.keymap

you may see something like

#!/bin/sh
# Load the keyboard map. More maps are in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps.
if [ -x /usr/bin/loadkeys ]; then
/usr/bin/loadkeys uk.map
fi

so change it to /usr/bin/loadkeys dk.map

(/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty should have dk.map.gz in it)

held og lykke

Keymap did not work

Okay! I have now tried with both dk.map and dk-latin1.map and neither the local characters or AltGr keys are working! Please help! I am running slackware on my laptop!

If you are in a gui like kde or gnome I guess you may have to change the keyboard or country settings there too? Does the dk.map setting help when you boot to the command line?

In kde go to the control centre /keyboard layout

theres even options there for specific hardware. Can't help with gnome but I bet there's something similar there too.
