    Sound


    I've just installed Yoper, which is fantastic. I have gotten pretty much everything up and running, except for one thing. I can't get my sound to work. It doesn't even detect my sound card. Alsamixer doesn't work and Alsaconf won't detect my sound card. Also, I've tried to install the nforce drivers, but I get errors about the kernel-source. All I want is for this to work. Anyone have any ideas?

    It'd help a whole lot if you would tell us about your soundcard. I presume it's onboard? From the command line do:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    Find the section about your soundcard and post it here.

    I'm having troubles installing my drivers. It says it needs to mod the kernel, but it can't find my kernel source. I know where my source is, but it says something about a --kernel-source command? I have no clue what to do now...

    You'll have to apt-get the kernel sources, something like
    Code:
    apt-get kernel-sources
    as root, or you could find them in synAPTec.
