Talking Got is... Aumix

FancyPiper - You are the Guru. Sound is working just fine. I finally found aumix and when I cranked up the volume on that sound came pouring out. I plan to keep working on this system. I am currently taking UNIX at the local community college and intend to do all my homework on this system. Thanks again for your help. If at first, you don't succeed try, try again....

Wink Sound is working, but loses mixer on reboot

fancypiper,
You are good. Everything is working. I have sound. Only 2 minor problems now. They may be inter-related. One, my system loses the mixer on reboot. So I have to modprobe snd-mixer-oss on boot up. Then sound works just fine. Second - When I type a command. It says command not found, even when I see it in the sbin directory. I found that I can type ./ before the command and it works. The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know. Linux, even on this old system runs pretty well. I will keep on plugging away. Thanks again for all the help.

You can put commands you want to run in the last script run by Red Hat, the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file. Just add the commands you want to run to the bottom of the file.

You probably weren't switching to the full root account.

To change to the full root account (system administrator), open an x terminal and use these commands from your user account. Note the change in the prompt.
Code:
[fancy@tinwhistle fancy]$ su -
Password: 
[root@tinwhistle root]#
If you will edit your profile and put your distro in it, it will save having to re-read earlier posts. Look to the left of this post for an example.

Talking Sound is working edited /etc/modules.conf

Everything is working. Looked again at the INTALL like you told me. I added the following lines to /etc/modules.conf . Then after configuring aumix. I did a aumix -S and then I edited the /etc/rc.local file and added aumix -L and it sets all the sound levels. Works beautifully. When I started I did not know how to list a directory. Thanks for all the help.
