Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've just installed Slackware 10.1, but I get no sound. I have an on-board SiS Audio hardware. It's odd, because a few days earlier SLAX was running smoothly from my CD-ROM, but this 2CD distro won't play my sound...
Whta sould I do?
Already tried alsaconf as root, it detects my SiS card, says that it is OK, it is configured.
But still no sound.
When I run alsamixer, (alsaconf tell me that), i get 'no elems' messege, and STILL no sound...
Also looked in modules.conf, some SiS stuff there too... Also, in asound.state all seem ok...
Well, I have a SiS630/730 chipset, with modem, LAN and sound onboard. When I start alsaconf, after searching the data base, it says that he found something called 'trident SiS bla-bla-bla' (cant' remember right now the exact message, but it was correct). Them alsa said it's all configured, but no sound after that.
I prefere not to cmpile my kernel. As simple as possible... please.
NOTE: you can use './configure --help' to see more options and just compile your card in my case that is an intel card i just put '--with-cards=intel8x0'
# make install
Now try alsaconf as root in order to configure automatic your /etc/modules.conf
Now adjust your volume and etc
Yupiiii !!! enjoy it baby , Linux el mejor sistema heee.
I did that and now my sistems rocks heeeeeeeee !!!!!!!!!
Open something like aumix and try unmuting all of the channels.
If you're still having no luck open the "Sound System" part of the Control Centre, go to the second tab labelled Hardware, where it says Select the Audio Device there should be a drop down box to the right of this. Try each of the options there (you may have to restart the sound server each time I can't remember) this worked out of the box under Slack 9.1 and 10 without Kernel recompiles (as long as the Kernel is newer than 2.4.20 or 21) for SiS 7012 onboard sound.
Well that's just typical, I now find this doesn't work for Slackware 10.1!
But not until after I've changed the motherboard of my desktop machine to one with SiS 7012 because it works for my laptop. Except that as I've upgraded that to 10.1 as well I now have no sound on the laptop either.
Maybe I'll have a look at a 2.6.x kernel and see if that gives me any luck.
