I have just installed RH9 on my Compaq Evo N1015v and it is now running with a few problems over varying levels of annoyance.
I have a few questions:
1. to get the kernel running i have to set the following options in my grub.conf can anyone explain what they do/are?
nomce pci=off ide=nodma
2. My soundcard is incorrectly detected as outlined in a few howtos for my laptop model the trident driver doesn't work. How can i setup the soundcard manually. or disable the trident driver so it will use another.
3. My ethernet card has not been detected poss due to the pci=off setting? When i try and set this up manually it says that it cannot find the device. What should i do to try and diagnose the problem? Any particular log files, etc. Manually commands?
4. USB isn't working at all
