Mobo


Okay, I'm using a gigabyte K8NSN-XP-S754 and neither my sound nor ethernet is working correctly. They do not have linux drivers listed.

Does anyone know of a good linux drivers database that I can go to?

The motherboard specifications indicate this is a Marvell ethernet adapter which uses the sk98lin module. Try:
modprobe sk98lin

try 'alsaconf' to configure your sound card..

basically you can get this to work. there aren't drivers in the windoze sense. Your kernel might have to be changed to include support for your sound /mobo.........

Bit of terminal output:
kitsunedebian:~# modprobe sk98lin
kitsunedebian:~# alsaconf
bash: alsaconf: command not found
kitsunedebian:~# modprobe alsaconf
FATAL: Module alsaconf not found.
kitsunedebian:~#

Should I be doing this out of KDE?

well you should be running it as root in a 'konsole' if you want. don't know why alsaconf wasn't found unless you didn't run it as root.

as root what is lspic?????????

FYI - alsaconf is a programme that detects and configures sound card modules for linux..........

lspci is list pci devices attached to MOBO.

No, you should just install alsa and that will give you alsaconf.

Check out alsa-project.org.

The modprobe line didn't output anything, which usually means the module was loaded and everything is ok. alsaconf isn't a kernel module and as such, you don't use it with modprobe. You need to install the alsa-utils package to be able to use alsaconf.

HTH.
