Unable to configure FC 6 on HP dv9000

Hello people of the FOSS world.

I have 3 big issues with the FC 6 I have installed on my HP dv9000 laptop.

The other OS is the Windows Vista.

1. Firstly, the sound card isnt being detected. I am unable to configue that.

2. The "netconfig" command does not work. It says command not found when I try using it. This FC 6 is fll blown distro. I have installed everything.

3. I have a Wi-Fi zone at my place. The D-link router i use is connected to the Desktop (windows XP SP2) which is in turn conected to the internet. So here I have two things to be sorted out.....

--> I have to configure RHEL 4.0 which is on my desktop as a server. Firstly, I hav to configure the wireless network on it. I need help regarding that cause I have never tried it before.

--> I need to configure my Laptop as a client. Again I need help.

Forget about my mentions of Windows (xp/Vista). They have nothing to do with any thng here. Just focus on RHEL 4.0 on my desktop and FC 6 on Laptop.

All help will be greatly appreciated. LQ forums have never let me down ever.

Thank You,

Well, I can certainly get your audio working (maybe). I wrote the driver for most of the HP DV series systems.

First, I would recommend a newer distro, like FC7, Sese 10.2, or (my favorite) Mandriva Spring edition.

At any rate, you need to be running the latest alsa-driver 1.0.14. To determine the version you have, open a terminal window and type "cat /proc/asound/version". Anything less than 1.0.14, and you'll need to upgrade.

I have a build evironment that is fairly automated. You can download it here. You need to install the kernel-devel packages to build it, and you will also need to be root. Just untar it to /usr/src, cd into the directory and type "make". If the build goes ok, you can type "audio_install" to upgrade your system (driver, libs, and utils).

Let me know if you run into issues with this step.
