Debian from Knoppix HD install driver issues


I just installed Knoppix 3.7 to the HD with the provided script. Im doing this on a Dell Inspiron 8100 with 192MB RAM, 1GHz processor, nVidia GForce 2 Mobile graphics card, and a ESS Maestro 3 sound card. Everything works just fine except two things:

1.) Any media player (except KsCD) freezes when it trys to play something. I have tried the ALSA drivers (says no sound card detected), the eSound drivers (say no sound card detected), and the OSS drivers (freezes up when I hit play). I used apt-get to update all three drivers without any luck.

2.) KDE won't let me increase the resolution past 1024x768. In Windows I can get it up to 1400x1050. I ran apt-get to get the nVidia drivers and they installed just fine. It detects my card during boot, but still won't let me increase the resoultion.

1) Sorry, no experience with the ESS sound card. I could swear I have seen this working though with recent 2.4 kernel modules. Check out tuxmobil.org/dell.html for some hints.

2) Are you sure you have a 1400x1050 line in your XF86Config(-4) line?

I've found some information on the sound card, but none of the fixes fixed it for me. Im going to compile a new kernel and see if that does it. Yes there is a 1400x1050 line in the XConfig-4 file
