I followed the link, and the updated link, and downloaded the archived package. I didn't like the "You must know what you are doing to use this" message in the readme but will attempt to muddle my way through.

Thank you for the direction to work on.

Yes. The mixer and volume control says it is sending sound out, and plays the test signal to the headphones / speakers. No sound comes out. I have tested the speakers and headphones on the same hardware but running Win XP and they work no problem.

Contents of /etc/fstab file and result of fdisk -l command are below.

It shows the second drive as being a SFS system. It is formatted as a NTFS system. Is there a difference? (both drives are sata).

I think you will need to install ntfs-config using yast.
Post your /etc/fstab file

I have both Win XP and Suse Linux ver 10.3 installed on one 500 GB hard disk.

When I try to delete files frm teh Win partition, I get an error message saying Windows doesn't give me permission to do so. I can copy, but not move or delete.

How do I tell Windows to mind its own business and let me have full access to my files, preferably from within Linux?

I run Suse Linux 10.3. It detects the soundcard and automatically installs it. It reports that everything is fine. But produces no sound. The soundcard is incorporated on the motherboard. I am at a loss as what settings or whatever to change. Any ideas? Please?

I have two hard disks in my computer. One is 500 GB, the other 1 TB. I have Win XP and Suse Linux ver 10.3 installed on the 500 GB disk. No problem.

I can access the Windows partition of that 500 GB disk from Linux. No problem.

The hardware setup in Linux says the other disk exists. But won't list it as a mountable drive or access it or files on it.

My question: how do I access the second hard disk? Is it too large for Linux to mount? Is there a workaround? Or is it something else causing it? I did add the 1 TB disk after Linux was installed. Would this affect it?

Hello Huston - we have a problem - it wont accept all arguments.

I did the change, but it rejected two changes, with the errors:
BLKRASET failed: Invalid argument
and
HDIO_SET_MULTCOUNTfailed: Invalid argument.

I retyped exactly as you said, and again the same results. The output ended as multcount=8, IO support=3, unmaskirq=1, using dmg=1, keepsettings=0, readonly=0 and readahead=8. IE all no change except IO_SUPPORT changed from 1 to 3.

I do have the hard disk partitioned with Windows XP on the other part. Windows was here first then Linux installed with the partitioning done as part of the install. HDA is still the Linux part (I think). How do I make sure?

Sorry, I just wan't sure what it did. So:

hdparm -v /dev/hda gave me:
multicount = 8 (on)
IO_support = 1 (on)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dmg = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 8 (on)
geometry = 4866/255/63, sectors = 78177792, start = 0

Then the third time of running hdparm -tT /dev/hda gave me:

Timingbuffer-cache needs: 592mB in 2.00 secs = 296.00 mB/sec
Timingbufferdisk needs: 62mB in 3.07 secs = 20.20mB/sec

I don't know if it helps, as other apps don't take anywhere as near as long. Although not a fast system, Open Office just takes loads and loads of extra time with the splash screen held over the top. I can run other apps underneath it (with obvious sight difficulty) without affecting the time to load Open Office.

I realise it does something to my hard disk, but what exactly does it do?

AMSN works fine. I wanted to use one with all protocols really, as I know some who use MSN and some on AOL. As long as it works though, as it does at the moment, I am happy. I might look at a newer version of GAIM or similar later on.

Thanks guys. GAIM does AIM, ICQ, Yahoo!, MSN, IRC, Jabber, Napster, Zephyr, and Gadu-Gadu all at once. Just not for me!

I've now got AMSN on installed and working. Many thanks for the link.

I had Mandrake Linux 9.2 installed. Then I upgraded to version 10. Under both systems whenever I have started Open Office up it takes over 20 minutes and keeps the splash screen on top of all other windows. Somewhat annoying. Any ideas what can slow down the speed that Open Office starts at?

I have registered using Windows on MSN (as it wouldn't let me when in Linux). I then booted into Mandrake Linux 10 and started GAIM. It lets me log into my AOL Messenger account, but not the MSN Messenger. The error states that the "protocol is not supported".

What should I do to, er, support the protocol?
