    Exclamation [SOLVED] Need advice on Mandriva 2009!!


    Hi all,

    Can any one point me in the right direction.......

    I have installed mandriva 2009.0 free onto a Dell Latitude E5500, dual booting with winxp (every device are operational here) , however this is not the case with mandriva 2009.0; display=ok, wifi= ok, sound=No??


    The output from lspci tells me it's a;

    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)


    I have also carried out the following:

    1.) Using the latest ALSA drivers for mandriva 2009.0, followed the example in the link below;

    Configuring the audio and updating ALSA for Mandriva 2008.0 [Linux Laptop Wiki]

    2.) I have ran the Mandriva Linux Control Centre, hardware, sound configuration utility.

    3.) I have also used the # alsaconf utility,....


    Still No Sound, can any one point me in the direction of light & enlightenment


    Many thanks in advance.

    I don't know if this will help or not but look at the Mandriva errata and see if
    this could be yours..

    Thumbs up

    Hi All,

    I have managed to get the sound working, after re-reading the Bug#44855 and Bug#44727 from this link,

    2009.0 Errata - Mandriva Community Wiki

    I than reformatted the linux partition of the hard disk, re-installed Mandriva 2009.0 (attaching the Dell E5500 to a physical network connection), than updated the newly installed Mandriva 2009.0 with the latest updates.

    Many thanks to all for your in-put.:
