help configure nforce2 (sound & network)


I tried installing the nvidia nforce drivers yesterday. I don't think I did it right because intel generic drivers are still listed (lsmod). Sound sorta works (noatun plays .mp3s but Tuxracer has no sound).

How do I prevent them from loading, or better how do I make my nforce audio work correctly?

nVidia has a tool which takes care of the required changes in the XFree86 config file. You'll find it on the same page as the installation instructions. But that only works after you've installed the nForce drivers. Try installing them again and make sure you're not cutting corners (purposely or accidently) I've got them to work on my nForce2 based Sarge system, so you should succeed as well.

The nforce drivers don't require any modification to the X configuration...

The problem may have to do with ALSA/OSS conflicts. The nvsound driver is an OSS driver where as your old drivers were probably ALSA (so you apps would have used different defaults). Some will autodetect and if the old drivers are still loading that may cause them to guess wrong. I'm not a Debian user so no details on this step but add the old sound modules to the module blacklist so they won't be loaded, reboot to make sure everything is right and try again.
