    Unhappy Help with new Sony-VAIO FJ150 notebook


    Greeting Linux Friends of The World.

    I am in need of help. I have a brand new sony vaio FJ-150F laptop. First thing I did out of the box was to erase windows and install linux Redhat 9 (quite a daring thing to do for a linux newbie like me). Some concerns remain however, since I need to find some additional drivers and hence my request to you all, if you could direct me on how to find and install the drivers for :

    - the sound card
    - the built-in `motion eye` video camera
    - the mouse pad that no longer works

    gosh this looks like a christmas list. but any help is most than welcomed.
    thanx in advance.

    sound=ALSA

    look up stuff for redhat and ALSA.

    mouse=have a look at this although it is gentoo specific it could guide you in right direction. By the way this is for synaptics touch pads. http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_Synaptics_Touchpad

    camera=no idea sorry
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
