Hi there,

I just received a laptop from a friend that is running Fedora Core 7. I'm completely new to this. The sound doesn't work on the laptop and neither does the internal wireless card. Everything else looks fine. It was originally running Windows XP but apparently he got rid of it completely and Fedora is the only thing it's running. Aside from that it's a stock Toshiba Satellite. Not sure what specific model it is though, sorry.
I like the way Fedora looks and handles, and it seems pretty user friendly, but how do I get the sound and the wireless card to work?

Much obliged happy.gif.

Thank you both.
I found the model number, it's a Toshiba Satellite A105 - S2101.

I wasn't able to use lpsci with out getting an error message that the command was unknown, so I poked around and found another command and got it to work:
