setting up network and sound
for setting up sound card, how do i know whether i require ALSA and which driver would work on my 2.6 kernel.....
one more problem that i face is that, i cant go to runlevel 3...the error it gives is"unable to handle kernel paging request" but i can go to runlevel 1 comfortably...
what is the reason for all these problems and can they be solved?
Its hard to say which kernel will support your hardware as we dont know exactly what it is.
I would recomment using the latest stable kernel (188.8.131.52 atm I think) because it would have the most support for hardware.
Generally what I do when I build a kernel for a new system is I get as much information about my hardware as possible and then when I build the kernel I add only what I need (I only build the modules I need which makes compiling a lot quicker)
so to start off save the output of lspci to a file
lspci > hw.txt
