You may need a later Mandrake version to get support for your motherboard's chipset.

What are you trying to run now?

Let me guess you have an NForce based chipset on your motherboard right?

Yeap it's an nForce.

This is a relatively new chipset for the Linux kernels.

Fortunately if you can't find sound support now for your motherboard, wait a day and download a new kernel and it will be supported.

There is a high demand for the nForce so expect support to arrive VERY quickly as there are a lot of people in the same boat.

It is likely that the 2.6.9 kernel tree does everything you need, but as of Mandrake 10.0 (I haven't researched this on 10.1) official support was sparse.

You could try to find a later kernel on one of the urpmi repositories...

e.g.

ftp://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirror/...linux/official

The contrib and PLF repositories usually have later kernels available.

ftp://ftp.easynet.fr/plf/mandrake/

Note that even if you have urpmi set to pull from the remote repositories, it will not automatically upgrade your kernel.

You must explicitly specify it...

e.g.

urpmi kernel-2.6.8-12mdk kernel-source-2.6.8-12mdk

You need both the kernel and kernel-source, and often ATI and NVIDIA module drivers if you have one of these video cards....

urpmi kernel-2.6.8-12mdk kernel-source-2.6.8-12mdk NVIDIA-2.6.8-12mdk

Check the FTP repositories to see what kernels are posted there, usually these are the easiest to install.

You can then download the files locally and install from there or do both at once using the urpmi command above...

(If you have set your urpmi sources properly and have your networking set up as well... which may be difficult if you are lacking chiplevel support...)

The other recourse is to go right to 10.1 which does have nForce support in it.
