add services??

How can I add services in slackware??? I am trying to get my sound working, used Mandrake for a couple weeks and in that it was "ntsysv" to select the sound driver. -thanks

What sound card do you have?

Usually you will need to load a module. To search available modules look in the /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/sound directory.

Locate the one you need and then use "modprobe" to load the module. You can use the "lsmod" command to list the currently loaded modules.

If you have a really new sound card without kernel support then you may need to use the alsa drivers available at

i have ac'97 on board sound, i have the drivers installed just need to load upon starting, in mandrake i would use "ntsysv", check the alsa sound driver box, then put a few lines in my modules.conf file, but i guess there is no ntsysv for slackware, so how do do what ntsyv did??? -thanks

it should be in the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file

just add the line

/sbin/modprobe ac97
