  1. Working now! With XP if the link is not working (because of too many users) you get an almost immediat message, for some reason with Linux it takes quite a while. TheNovice
  2. No I don't think so, the link works in Windows. TheNovice
  3. There is a website (http://www.madridman.com/multimedia.html) that I used to visit when I was using Windows, from there I could listen to some Spanish radio (specifically Radio Sur). With linux I have not been able to do that. i have downloaded Real Player and saved the Radio Sur link (RAM extension) and it worked a couple of time but not anymore. Why is the link not working directly anyway like in WIndows? Could anyone tell me what to do in order to listen to those Spanish radios. Many thanks TheNovice
  4. There is dum and there is me.... The wire was still connected to my XP box!! Thanks a million TheNovice
  5. ianw1974, I have done that but still no sound whatsoever. Should the computer at least beep? None of the jack at the back coming from the sound card are connected but the speaker from the monitor should be connected though the MoBo no? I know that the sound card works because I had speaker before. By the way I use a switch box for sharing monitor/keyboard/mouse with another PC (running Windows XP). TheNovice
  6. Hi Chalex20 thanks for the help. Every thing seems to be on except for: Line-In Mic as Center Mic Boost Mic Select Video 2nd PCM - IEC958 IEC958 Input Monitor (Could this be what I need as my speaker are on the monitor?) IEC958 Output Mix Mix Mono Duplicate Front External Amplifier Those ones I can' t select and turn up the bar. Any ideas, thanks TheNovice
  7. OK here is the problem: I run mandrake 10.1 community (sorry just to mention that I am a real beginner at Linux). I have the following sound card installed - VT8233 [AC97 Audio Controller], driver: Module: ?snd-via82xx Alternative drivers: ?via82cxxx_audio. Following the troubleshooter from Harddrake 2 I have the following: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- snd-via82xx : VIA Technologies|VT8233 [AC97 Audio Controller] [MULTIMEDIA_AUDIO] (vendor:1106 device:3059 subv:1458 subd:a002) When I enter the following command nothing is coming back: grep sound-slot/etc/modules.conf Next: [root@localhost etc]# /sbin/chkconfig --list sound sound 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off Next: [root@localhost etc]# /sbin/chkconfig --list alsa alsa 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off Next: [root@localhost etc]# aumix -q bash: aumix: command not found Next: [root@localhost etc]# /sbin/fuser -v/dev/dsp usage: fuser [ -a | -s | -c ] [ -n space ] [ -signal ] [ -kimuv ] name ...

Could anyone tell me what is missing on my system. Many thanks. TheNovice
  8. Ooops sorry. here it is: # .bashrc # User specific aliases and functions # Source global definitions if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then . /etc/bashrc fi # enable programmable completion features if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then . /etc/bash_completion fi ~ ~ ".bashrc" 13L, 231C 1,1 All TheNovice

  10. I am trying to create a new alias for when I shutdown my box. As Chalex20 told me on a previous message I open /etc/bashrc with vi and added the following line (as root) alias shut='shutdown -h +1 "That's all folks for today"' I rebooted the box but it is not working. Did i miss something? Thanks TheNovice
  11. Artic you are the man, I forgot yesterday I did changed the setting to high (don't know why really but thought it would be better). Now I am reassured, I don't mind shutting down with konsole. Thanks a million TheNovice
  12. Just entered a couple of aliases, updates? Don't think so. Also setup the urpmi. What do you mean by hacking files? Do you think I have been hacked? Thanks TheNovice
  13. Since yesterday I have lost my logout option from the start button. Usually I had three option shutdown computer, restart, logon as another user. Now all I get is "End session for [user]". Any idea on what happened there? Many thanks. TheNovice [moved from Terminal Shell Commands by spinynorman]
  14. Thanks guys, AussieJohn, I did try your method before posting but for some reason it does not give me the info I was looking for (Do you know why??). Why do I make my life harder? Well I love to learn, this is why I took the transition from Windows to Linux, and I think it is good to know different ways to do things. jboy your method is spot on, it comes back with the following: "10.1.0 1.0 Color Blue" All I wanted to know. Thanks guys TheNovice
