      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

I think Mandrake 10.1 is way too old for your system. Use at least Mandriva 2006, or 2007 would probably be even better.

I second that. You can download either one of these for free from here (it lists 2007 only, but most servers have 2006 on them still).

You can also do with Mandrake 10.1, but you must compile and install for it alsa version 1.09 at least- else the nvidia HD audio chip is either not recognized at all, or will be badly configured by older alsa versions.

You can also leave your alsa as-it-is, and use the proprietary nvidia audio driver for that chip. This one is not "free" software, and so it was not included in Mandriva 10.1 - but it's fairly easy to find it, and compilation isn't difficult.
