    A couple Common Problems


    A call them common, because every time I install slackware, 10.0, 10.1, and now with 10.2, I have had these problems.

    1.) pkgtool's remove menu scans for files for a second, and then says "NO PACKAGES TO REMOVE. Hit enter to go back to the main menu"

    removepkg will work fine, but this is annoying. anyone else have this problem?

    2.) ALSA doesn't work! Now, if I install Slackware FULLY, as in, every package, ALSA works just great. but when I choose expert mode in installation, and I install only the things I need, ALSA loads up just fine and detects my card with alsaconfig, but I just get no sound. any ideas?

    if you want me to post lsmod output or anything let me know.

    my card: Sound Blaster Audigy ZS 2 Platinum. Module: snd_emu10k1

    1) Never had that.

    2) Have you set volume with alsamix(er)?

    I believe I've tried that when I had the problem with 10.1, but no, I haven't.

    doesn't alsaconfig automatically do that? I believe it does...

    lol of course. as soon as I get home (apparantly, I'm not home) I'll try that. If it doesn't work, got any other ideas?

    someone once mentioned making sure that my onboard driver wasn't in use, to check some alsa config files, but I never really could find any :-p

    use " alsamixer " to setup sound, then as root use " alsactl store " to save the settings.
    http://www.slackersbible.org/node/65 is a great reference to configuring sound.

    that worked. I think I just didn't realize that "MM" meant MUTE when I tried to get alsa to work for 10.1... and to press M to UNmute. oh well.

    Thanks!!

    edit: btw, pkgtool is still acting weird.
