Smile well I'm lost

Hey People!!
New linux user here, I'm having a little difficulty with things. I looked for a while and found the rpm for my nvidia onboard LAN for A7N8X Deluxe. Nvidia auto unpacked that for me, so that was easy- but I updated Red Hat 8.0, now no lan-blah, also Red Hat recognizes my audigy gamer, I can hear sounds but no music??? The cd's mounted- I'm lost, help!!! Wish I wouldn't have avoided dos for so long. I have found some docs on linux 5. something
Anyhoo- thanks for any positive feedback

So you say your Nvidia card was working before you updated ay? Did you update the kernel? I'm not familiar with these Nvidia drivers but its possible that the rpms are kernel specific. In that case, you have to find your current kernel version:

uname -r

and then go out on the web and find the rpm for that kernel version.

You can't hear music? Could you hear music before the update? What are you using to play your cds? You can't mount audio cds.

Audio CDs - common problem

1 - don't mount them, use KSCD or a similar CDplayer app to play them

2 - if you are already using a similar app, check that there is an audio cable from the CD drive to your soundcard. Linux needs one, Windows often doesn't. If you don't have one, no CD sound, but all system sounds and MP3s will still work.

Hope that sorts it out.

Thanks- I didn't put the cable on. I found the kernel upgrade, but there is no listing for either of the Nvidia packages when I go to networking. Thanks again!
