You like gentoo Linux? You feel it's better than Mandrake? Mandrake is my first try? Is Gentoo easy to work with?

I Have a "Voyetra-Turtle Beach-Santa Cruz sound card (OEM) installed by Dell. I have been unable to find the correct driver. Has anyone found it anywhere. The Voyetra site says to contact Dell. The reason I am asking is that When I installed Mandrake 9.2 Linux, it installed a Cirrus Prologic Driver and I have a THX Certified Suround Sound System by Altec Lansing four+one sub configuration, and I'm getting sound out of only the left front channel. PLease Help someone


I found this info at the Turtle beach web site.


Santa Cruz: Linux drivers?


Turtle Beach does not support the Linux Operating System. Non-supported
reference Cirrus Logic CS4630 drivers for Linux may be found at:

http://www.cirrus.com/drivers/audiodrv/ind...oductID=CS4630&
CategoryName=CS4630

(You will need to stitch this long URL together for it to work.)

The Santa Cruz is also Native in the Linux Kernel 2.4.x

No guarantees are made for the functionality of these drivers.
VTB assumes no responsibility for any damage that may occur from
your use of these drivers.


See also:
"Drivers for Alternative PC Operating Systems"



What's soing on is I getting sound out of the left front speaker. I have 4 speakers and a sub by Altec Lansing. How can I set it to work properly? I am w/ Mandrake 9.2, thanks

I had the same problem but got help, this reall works. Just remember "Linux is Case sensitive, I can't stress this enough!!! try this it worked for me on my Mandrake 9.2 system which is Red Hat based.


1. Make sure you have your kernel-source installed:

- open a konsole (ALT-F2 and type 'konsole') then do:

# rpm -qa|grep kernel

If kernel-source is not listed, install it with:

# su (hit enter and type your root password)
# urpmi kernel-source (hit enter and say 'y' to any questions)

2. Download the Linux driver from NVIDIA:
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x...0-5336-pkg1.run

3. Exit out of X when you done downloading (Right click on the desktop and
select 'logout', and logout of the session).

4. This should bring you back to the login screen. Switch to a console
(press CTRL-ALT-F1) and login with 'root' and your root password.

5. Turn off X by typing:

# init 3

6. Run the NVidia installer, by changing to the directory you downloaded it
to, and doing:

# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

7. Agree to everything it says, unless you don't want to smile.gif

8. When it is done, edit '/etc/X11/XF86Config-4':

# vi /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

Find the line with

Driver "nv"

and change it to

Driver "nvidia"

(to edit in vi, press the 'insert' key. to stop editing, press 'Esc'. When
you are done, press :wq to write and quit.)

8. Reboot your computer (type 'reboot' at the console) and it should come
up with the NVidia driver.

Thanks,

So here is what I do

1) Start computer
2) Open terminal
3) Type <su> hit enter
4) Type <root password> hit enter
5) Type <init 3> hit enter
6) Go to CD/Home
7) Run Nvidia driver app
8) Edit xfree86 as per Nvidia readme
9) Reboot computer and enjoy!!

Last question I hope, Do I need to change back to init 5 after the install?

I feel so ignorant, but I read the manuals every night, lol
One things for sure though, I hate ms win passionatly, argh!

Thanks for being so helpful!

Robert,

Ok, I opened a terminal, the ran "mc", found the "etc/inittab", opened it to edit it, found & changed the line id:5:initdefault
to id:3:initdefault. But I must be missing a step.

The nvidia readme says to first exit or stop x so that I am no longer running in a GUI. How do I do that? Next question.......After I change the value from 5 to 3, do I save it?

Quick question. How do you check to see which version of the kernel you are using?

I think that it is the terminal that I am so afraid of. I wasn't used to using it or the numerous linux commands. There is so much to learn. I feel like I'm standing at the base of Mt. Everest, lol. But I know it is worth it. I can't to get back to it.

Thanks so much Robert!! I'm glad that you took the time to help. I have to admit that I don't know what nautilus or mc is. I have been using Linux for two days and have reinstalled it three times. I just don't know what to do. I am so used to windows that my brain thinks "windows" I know that's probably the wrong thing to do.

I am clueless and totally new to linux, however I know that what I can do with it is awesome. I have what I think is a graphics acceleration issue, reason being the graphics on all non graphic intense apps work fine but the graphics for games are soooooooooo slooooow it is ridiculous. I have installed on my pc an "Nvidia GeForce2 MX" card. I am also runnin Mandrake9.2 w/ all current updates. Can someone show me ( Hold my hand ) in baby steps how to correct this. I really don't want to go back to winsucks, I hate it so much.
