After building the kernel 2.4.20 I have no audio and I cant go on the internet....
When I start Linux its on runlevel i think 4 or 3 Iam not sure but I hear the bc beep If I press backspace in the command line if nothing is there. I havent tried playing audio in commandline so Iam not sure if that would work.
When I startx I get "Sound server information message message Error while initialinizing the sound driver device /dev/dsp cant be opened (no such device) The sound server will continue using the null output device"
I checked /dev and there was a file called dsp so I changed the persmissions on it so everyone can use it but that didnt work either.
I went here http://www.ali.com.tw/eng/support/faq_linux_os_faqs.htm
the audio I have is AC97 M1647 and the website dosent have any Linux drivers for it but it said what to enable on the kerenl configuration and I did but still dosent work. The website also said to go here ALi Audio Linux Driver
but I didnt find the Linux driver maybe its there I just cant find it.
I have verizon ADSL before building the kernel I used to acess the internet by using http://roaringpenguin.com/
I had no problems.
After building the kernel I get this error when typing in adsl-start (which is the command that connects me to the internet) "..........TIMED OUT /usr/sbin/adsl/ start:line 194 411 terminated $connect "$@">dev/null 2>&1
Maybe I didnt include something in the kernel configuration I have a westell modem provided by Verizon and a Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC its location is PCI slot 5
and thats it ohh and by the way the reason I built the kerenl was to learn about the Linux operating system not that I was unhappy with my last configuration. And now Iam stuck and need help thanks.
