    No Sound

    I installed Mandrake 10 last night and the only thing I cannot get working is my sound.

    I have a Intel D865PERL motherboard > SoundMAX 4 XL with AudioESP audio subsystem using the Analog Devices AD1985 codec

    I am new to linux and don't know where to start. Thanks

    Have you configured sound using MCC (Mandrake Control Center)?

    Yes, I tried that. It seemed to have three other drivers to choose from and I tried those two but nothing.

    make sure it isn't muted in the mixer,
    any other error messages ?

    I was thinking it was muted too but when I open up audacity I get this:

    There was an error initializing the audio i/o layer.
    You will not be able to play or record audio.

    Sorry I am new where is the mixer?

    I found a couple of things were not working. I reinstalled Mandrake and now everything seems to be working.

    Thanks for the help
