    Help a linux beginer


    Hello,

    I am new to linux. I installed Mandriva Limited 2005 10.1 (currently running 10.2) and i dont seem to have any sound. I tried sndconfig, but it said that my SB Audigy 2 ZS was "Unknown Vendor|unkown" and unsupported. Where can i find drivers for it? or just make it work.

    Also, i've noticed that anything i try to install it usualy asks for a library or something of that sort. And when even i try to install the library/ application i usually get a bunch of errors. I have some knowledge of C++ and im able to fix some of the errors, but sometimes it cannot find some of the header files (*.h).
    For example
    I was trying to install lm_sensors, but it needs i2c.]
    When i try to install i2c : i get bunch of errors:
    Code:
    [martinb@localhost i2c-2.9.1]$ make

    the first error "mach_apicdef.h: No such file or directory" i found the file in bunch of direcotries located in us/include/asm/
    but why is it i saying that there is now such file.

    Is it normal to get errors like this when compiling and installing normal software?
    also how do i fix it.

    Thanks in advance.

    HI,
    try to visit your SoundCard site to see if there is a Driver for Linux.
    and for the install try to get the rpm package and install it,not a binary package, a good site for rpm is rpmfind.net.
