At my wits end with sound card issue....
New to linux.
Newer to Slackware. Loving it though because its got me thinking...that I enjoy and why I have gotten into Linux.
Have a HP ZV5260US laptop with SW 10.1 installed.
Ive managed to get the Nvidia driver installed, the xorg.conf file tweeked up to run at 1280x800 res, while using the Nvidia driver.
Managed to tweek the same file to enable the wheel on my mouse...that took some searching.
Now Im trying to tackle my soundcard issue. Guys I dont know what to do. I ran the alsaconf app and discovered I have an intel8x0 sound card. ?
So I started snooping around the net (this and other forums) and got lead to believe that I should install the alsa driver/utils/lib files from the alsa website (which I did)....ran some modprobes of this and that (as per the alsa installation instructions page)....still nothing.
So I am at my wits end. I do not know what file to turn to to tweek...or what application to run in order to get this sound card up and running.
Im running Gnome desktop (if that matters)
Thanks for the read...hopefully someone out there can help me out.
