I have Mandrake 10.1 with KDE. I was in the configuration section, messing with screen resolution and was prompted that i must log out for the changes to take effect. I thought I logged out, restarted the X server session?, and restarted the computer. Now when I start the computer, it comes up to my login/password screen, and then logs me on as the root user. At least I think that is what it does since the $ preceeds the prompt. How do I get Linux to come back up automaticly? Did I mess something up with the autologin deal? HELP. Thanks

Fairly old. I386 type stuff. The BIOS only lets me boot from A, C, C to A or A to C. I have to put in a boot disk to get the CD Rom option. You were correct in your assumption as to the type of ROM. I have got it to work before when I had to Fdisk, Format and reload say WIN98. When the CD would come up, I would simply type SETUP.exe, however, that too will not work. HMMM? Thanks.

I am preparing to load FC3 on one of our old computers. The CD drive is not recognized so that the ISO may autorun. I ran the Win98 boot disk so that the CD drive would be recognized. The drive was recgonized and I can view the directories and files of the ISO disk, but I can not get it to start. Is there a command so that I can start the CD? The FC3 ISO disks do work because I loaded it on the computer I am currently typing on. Any help is appreciated. TOM

I am running KDE 3.2 on Mandrake 10.1 I ran alsaconf for an ESS 1869 sound card. The only sound I had was in the KDE 3.2 Sound System menu when I hit test. There is no sound when I hit the midi test. I have been experimenting with some games. All of the games produce sound. There are no system test or bell sounds and CD's do not play sounds either. Weird. Any ideas

I have an ESS 1869 ISA sound card. I was prompted to enter “alsaconf or sndconfig” at startup after install of Mandrakelinux 10.1 with KDE 3.2 I have been using alsaconf and it appears to load the soundcard, but there is no midi. I have tried to get sndconfig to work before I use alsaconf. I get short and incomplete sound test with it, and I believe I have tried all of the DMA and other configurations. Sometimes it indicates that the file can not be opened (when trying to use sndconfig) or it will try to test and just hang in the terminal screen. I have not attempted to load either alsaconf or sndconfig until i can get some feedback. Sometimes the KDE 3.2 Sound System panel will lock up if I play with the two driver commands too much. I have tried varied hardware configurations and tried to map to a midi device (i have no idea what i am doing with that). All of these actions will freeze up the panel so that it does not open too. Has anyone seen this stuff before? Is there anything I can do to get sound? Thanks

I have a Compaq Presario with a dual boot XP/Mandrakelinux 10.1 system with KDE3.2, Sound System and Kmixer. During the install of Mandrakelinux 10.1 I was prompted as to whether or not I have an ISA sound card. I clicked yes and was prompted to enter either "sndconfig" or "alsaconf" as the root user at start up. Sndconfig would not work, but Alsaconf didi. Alsaconf installed drivers for the ESS 1869 sound card.
When Sound System is opened up, the KDE system is "enabled" and a sound will test. However, no sound willl play when "midi test" is selected. On the hardware tab "auto-detect" is selected but there are no midi device choices. I can not play system sounds, system belll, or CDs. Essentially the only sound is on the KDE sound system test.
Here is some information that others have asked for, I hope it is of help:

I was actually able to get alsaconf to work. Now it is a midi issue, i think. Here is the card setup: E/A port= 0x220, IRQ=5, DMA=1, MPU-EA= 0x330. I know this because of when it was configured. As to where to find it now, I have no idea.
The issue is that it plays the test sound in KDE Sound System file. Computer .wav files and the system bell do not test or play. Music CDs do not play. Also, "test Midi player" under KDE Sound System does not do anything. When I look at the hardware tab under KDE sound system, it is on auto detect, and no selection of a midi device is possible. Any ideas?

I did some searching in ref. to my sound card, and have found that when installing Linux will ask whether or not you have an ISA sound card. If you do, Linux indicates that you need to run one of the above commands at the command line. I did see all of that. However, if I enter the commands above, nothing happens. From reading some other post, I think some sort of interface is supposed to come up. If it does not, then sndconfig did not install. Anyone familier with this? IF, I was to reload Mandrake 10.1 in an effort to correct my sound, would I lose all I have configured and loaded or is there some sort of repair type of function that may preserve all of my work?

Can anyone explain how to to enter either "alsaconf" or "sndconfig" at the command line? I have an ESS1869 ISA sound cardthat was not detected during the install, and I was instructed to enter this, but I do not know how. Does it have to be preceded or followed by any particular command?

I have had problems in the past with the card and tried to disable it thourgh the BIOS. I do not think that it is possible. Each time I look into the BIOS, the option simply is not there. As far as the hardware detection tool, you mentioned the redhat/fedora....kudzo. Is that an application I can use with Mandrake 10.1? Is it in the applications for system configuration? I remember when I tried Fedora it was a matter of attempting to detect hardware. I have not seen this kind of option in 10.1. If so, where might I find it? Forgive the how to questions, I am an extreme Linux novice and I am on the road at work and will not be able to get at my machine until tomorrow night.

I did a nice install with 10.1 and have been checking things out. I am playing with a lot of the programs and experimenting finding out what does what. Pretty good stuff.

I went to the ESS website to look for a possible file that may be the issue. All they had was Windows files and a file selection titled OS/2. I am not sure whether or not that is the deal. Also, I have no idea how to download something like that in Linux, but I am researching that one. I am thinking it is a matter of getting my system to detect it. HMMMM?

Is the little gear icon available when the application is open? I did not see it. I managed to make a short cut on the desktop with it. I would like to figure out how to get it to the application menu though. (i just hate all of the short cuts on the screen) I think I have found the correct location for the file that actually launches Firefox. Is that what I need to transfer? If you or someone could explain the actual transfer part, how to, etc... that would be great. I have been trying to move, transfer, copy, etc.. the application but I have had no luck. THANKS

i believe I got it in '98. It is a Compaq Presario 5240. The computer when new had Win 98. The computer is an old pig, but it has been taking to upgrades fairly well.

Additional information with the sound. When I boot the system, as KDE 3.2 starts I get this message:

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

Any help is appreciated. TOM

I am running a dual boot system with XP and Mandrakelinux. In Linux, the default browser is Konquerer through the KDE desktop. It appears to work fine, but many of the pages I go to for work have menus at the top of the page. These menus are not appearing. Is there a way to fix this? Also, I do like the Firefox browser. I downloaded it fine, but it does not appear under the internet application under the drop down menu. Is there a way to do this, and to make it my default if need be? Thank you.

I am running a dual boot system with XP and Mandrakelinux. Mandrake installed flawlessly except for the sound card. It indicated "failed". When I retried it asked whether or not it is an ISA sound card. I have an ESS1869 card and I do believe it is ISA. When ISA was selected I was prompted to enter either "alsaconf" or "sndconfig" at the command line. I am brand new to Linux and am not to familer. I believe I know where the command line is, but could not get this to work. Can anyone help with this?

I appreciate the information. I tried Fedora, and liked the way it ran and all. It appeard to be much more stable. However, I do believe Mandrakelinux is the way I would like to go. I was asking about the Windows programs because I did not know that there were compatible type programs out there. I found a website that lists many compatible programs for Windows replacements. The big downer for me was that I could not find a way to transfer all of my contacts with email. You mentioned manually doing it. I was not sure as to what you meant; as in manually reentering each one or some sort of import. As far as the W.I.N.E application; I saw it as I was browsing and thought it may have to do with Windows applications. What does it do? How exactly does the dual boot system work? I am still researching that one. Is dual better than straight Linux or vise versa? Again, I appreciate the information. I am trying to get educated on Linux, it just takes time. Thanks for the time and patience.

I am thinking about using Kmail. To do this I need to download the KDE desktop. I have Mandrakelinux. Which download do I need to do to use KDE. Any opinions on the Kmail. What other email clients are people using? I am using Thunderbird with XP. Am I able to use it with Linux? As far as KDE, what does it replace that is standard in Linux, and how well does it work? Thanks for any information.
