I am running Mandrake 10.1 Community to get a feel for Linux but after I installed and tested the sound there was no sound. I am using a Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 PCI card (model CT4740) and Mandrake has loaded up some brand name titled Ensoniq and driver module "es1371." I also have nForce 2 Audio Codec interface that iis on the mainboard and the driver module "snd-intel8x0" is loaded. Can anyone help me?

I would start by doing a few things. First update your system. You can do that from somewhere on the launch menu. Or you can do it command line. Thats a little more complicated.

These are the lines you need to do it.
CODE
urpmi.removemedia -a

urpmi.addmedia Disk_1 http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrakelinux/devel/10.0/i586/Mandrake/RPMS with ../base/synthesis.hdlist.cz

urpmi.addmedia Disk_2 http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrakelinux/devel/10.0/i586/Mandrake/RPMS2 with ../base/synthesis.hdlist2.cz

urpmi.addmedia Disk_3 http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrakelinux/devel/10.0/i586/Mandrake/RPMS3 with ../base/synthesis.hdlist3.cz

urpmi.addmedia Disk_1 http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrakelinux/devel/10.0/i586/Mandrake/RPMS with ../base/synthesis.hdlist.cz

urpmi.addmedia Disk_2 http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrakelinux/devel/10.0/i586/Mandrake/RPMS2 with ../base/synthesis.hdlist2.cz

urpmi.addmedia Disk_3 http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/mandrakelinux/devel/10.0/i586/Mandrake/RPMS3 with ../base/synthesis.hdlist3.cz

urpmi.update -a

urpmi --auto-select


Each of those is one command, one line, one at a time. It will take a little time, especially if your not on a HS connection, and especially the last two either way. That should get you up to date.

Than, I would make sure you have the ALSA rpm installed. After that, if its still not working at least we are both on the same page.
