I hope that got your attention. What you are saying actually makes some sense to me, more so based on it making th ecomputer do somethign that is interupting the compile process. Of course, I may be theorizing with my a.., but I did have some programming in college and what your saying just seems to click.

However I forgot way to much, ex- party animal (bummer), and just cannot think of how you took care of the fsb settings. Can you giv eme some guidance as to where I look and what I do if neccessary?

As long as I am at it though, I am still working on finishing this damn 9.2 install (day #3). Too bad I do not get paid for this shit!! Nevertheless, IT IS FACT! The stupid mirrors are all screwed up, or there is something wrong with the urpmi part of 9.2. I don't even try to individually get mirrors, or use the software manager to get them for me anymore, I just go to EASY URPMI. There are always mirrors there with software, even if I have to switvh around a bit I do get software.

YET, mdk 9.2 OR something screwing with the mirrors over the net is really messing with what we get AND i STILL CANNOT GET KONQUEROR FOR SUPER USER MODE/ROOT USER PERMISSION to EDIT FILES. I went to one sight 3 times, erasred the urpmi list prior to each visit for a download and each time I got different variations of the distro. I don't mena different as in main, contrib, or update, I literally mean different software. The last one was even weirder yet, but more so leads me to believe it is mdk 9.2, because rpmdrake would seem to slow down after a little while. Then I would shut it down, buta few seconds later start it up again and there would suddenly be some softwarein the list that was not there before.

I have KDEBASE, but I think it is missing files. I tried kdegraphics, but while rpmdrake shows what it is supposed to consist of the file contains "0" bites. In other words the name of the file is there with the name of the rpm, but I get nothing. Does anyone know where I can get the latest KDE Packages? I really prefer rpm's or I will be here another 3 days at least. , but I mus do what I must do I suppose.

Driver for 2.2 kernel

I succesfullly ran insmod for a Broadcom 4400 .src.rpm ethernet driver on my Mandrake 7.1 , 2.2.15-4mdkfb AMD Duron Laptop
The sound driver still cannot be loaded.
I want to install new sound drivers that are meant for a 2.4 kernel.
Can I do it without installing a 2.4 kernel?

by u getting ur kernel to comple u have given all of us lesser newies some hope.
I too would like get alsa. I have a athlon sound blaster live card installed and would like to know what you options in the menu did you have to enable. Did you enable emu10k1 in Sound or OSS support also in sound i think. thanks

Question for fr0zen!!

I truly apologize for not responding to you suggestion much sooner, but I became frustrated and totally erased my hd and reinstalled mdk 9.2 without any of the past mdk 9.1. Amazingly, perhaps only to me, everything including ALSA worked beautifully (although I did have to do an update-menus -v in the konsole).

However, I have not done any compiling as yet to fine tune the kernel. I supposed I am a bit afraid of doing so and running through the same bullshit. I am becoming a little more trusting of myself and the information I have been reading. Yet, the info you gave me last year,
" read your first post and it looked familiar to what I encountered. I found that if I have my processor OC'd (that is, my FSB running higher than it was intended) GCC would produce compiler errors during particular sections when compiling the kernel.

Wasn't overheating, termperature remained around 39C. But, could have caused memory issues that affected the stability of GCC. I simply restored the settings to a more stable level, and the compile proceeded successfully."

is very interesting indeed. Mainly because I have a situation that may be related but I need your expertise to be sure.

I have an ASRock K7VM2 Athlon xp1800 mb with an xp1800 cpu but while the mb is able to be 200 fsb I have it set at 100 fsb because of two different types of sdram I have installed. One is 150fsb the other is only 100 fsb and thus both can only function together at the lower end. The other situation is that my cpu is only processing at 1150 mhz and I assume it is due to the memory adjustment and or the mb being at only 100 fsb instead of the max. What do you think?

The other question is this; Could all of the above be why I cannot get the kernels to compile when I try to take care ofr the sound?

On the other hand, here is something I think may somehow be the cause, but I really do not know what to do about it. When I installed mdk 9.2 with only a non-source kernel the ALSA and all sound capabilities function beautifully except one. My mb came with an on board AC97 sound, which I do not like very much and thus installed my own SB Live!. However, ALSA or the 2.4.22-21mm kernel are seeing both the SB Live! and the AC 97 and when I try to compile the kernel I tell it that I am only compiling or activating the SB Live!.

Could that also be a problem? If it is the problem causing the compiles to not work, what can I do about it?

Even though the kernel is seeing them both I cannot have them both working, at least, I do not know how to have them both working.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Fellow mewbie "jah8102", please read the above. I never did get the ALSA and such to work from a compile. The ALSA and EMU10K1 does work with the "2.4.22-21mm" pre-compiled non-source kernel, but if you also have an on board sound card along with a SB Live! pci card both will be seen and you will have to always turn off the AC97 (or whatever) everytime you turn on your Linus distro because I do not know how to make them work together.
