Question Sound and other questions ! Slack 9


OK here's the story
i had the sound working, but my wireless pcmcia didnt work,
so i recompiled the kernel with support for my wifi's card's chipset. But now the sound's not working. I tried to load the module but it says it cannot find it. Where are all modules located (the ones that r not used). I'm running on p2 366 laptop with low 64mb memory and 1.7 space. I'd like also to limit the # of processess running. I want just the minimal processes to run X. Another quewstion is about mounting the vfat partition to read and write under windows. I'm able to mount is as and browse it as root, however as regular user it;s not possible even after changing priviledges for the mounted partition. Thanks in advance.
O yeah one more thing, i got fluxbox slack package, installed it, but what to do now. How do i configure gdm, etc. Thanks again

if after a 'modprobe', the modules don't show up, then you don't have them installed. if you built them directly into the new kernel you made, then they obviously shouldn't be there. if you inlcuded them as a module, then modprobe will get them.

if by some freak chance they don't show up even though you included and compiled them, you should be able to find them in /lib/modules/linux-2.4.20 (or whatever the name of the kernel is that you just compiled.

i used to use fluxbox a lot, and it isn't too hard to configure. you can use all of the general option offered, pick themes, or if you really want to go all out, you can design your own themes. you can check out http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net/docbook/en/html for all sorts of info on how to do this, and a dictionary of terms you can use.

good luck,
Andrew

about the mount you can try editing /etc/fstab so it reads
/dev/xxx /mnt/win vfat uid=xxx,gid=yyy 0 0

just findout your uid and gid issuing the command id'you can add all sorts of other stuff like r w for read write options...
do a man fstab its all there
