    Installing the "Non-Free" drivers???


    Ok I've installed Debian on my IBM600 laptop The GNOME version. And it's working great but when I did the install I got the notice to install the "Non-Free" Device Drivers to get all the system hardware to work properly. Specifically seems like the sound is all that is not working.

    Thanks

    Non free drivers just mean that you are using official drivers and not the open source drivers. It's very common to do so. Hopefully it will fix your sound issues.
