Time Event
Sound Blaster Audigy trouble
It's driving me nuts that Sourceforge is down for maintenance right now.. I guess that's my cue to go to sleep. Just one question before I sleep.. Sorry if this has been asked before also. I could only find some out of date info on google about this.

I have a Creative Sound Blaster Live Audigy SB0090 OEM Sound Card. It's working according to the hardware menu and test sound, but when I try to play a CD, I get no sound from any of the players.

I was just wondering if anyone had some info about what could be causing this, or if there's something special I need to do?

Thanks to the other people who helped me today. I guess I should mention that I'm running SuSE 9.1 also. It's running well, but just trying to get each thing working like it should.
Wireless fun
If you haven't heard of this, Linuxant Driverloader is bloody great! It actually takes windows wireless NIC drivers and converts them to something Linux can understand. The only downside is it's not free. You get a 30 day trial, and then have to cough up $20. So far, this is the only thing that let me use my Trendnet Trendware TEW-226PC wireless card. I'm going to dig around for the next 30 days to see if I can actually find a real driver for this beast, but if I don't - Linuxant is so cool in concept that I almost don't mind paying for it. Almost. Speaking of - if anyone knows of any drivers that'll actually compile for a RealTek 8180 chipset 802.11B wireless card, I'd really appreciate it. So far, everything I got from both Trendware and RealTek itself has failed to compile.

website hosting
Hello all, I am here to ask for a recommendation.

I have been hosting my own site for the last four or five years, which has its advantages, but I've got enough going on right now without worrying about that sort of thing.

I'm looking for a good, simple, cheap linux webhosting company. Google has been flooded to no end and is more or less useless in finding something like this. It'd be nice to have a gentoo User-Mode-Linux host, but the pricing plans on those are $20/mo. and up which is just silly for a personal site. Therefore simple hosting with at least PHP and maybe Python, also MySQL couldn't hurt, would be great.

Does anyone have good experience with a provider?
How useless is this?
[andy@localhost ocaml-3.07]$ man umask

I know we all know what it does but isn't it a bit rude assuming that a user knows all the builtins already?

OMG F-ING LINUX!!!!!!!!!
ok, the new 2.6.8 kernel absolutely sucks! or maybe i'm just a blundering idiot! I've been trying to figure out why my new kernel panics everytime i try the new kernel?!?! argh!!! I've checked, double checked, inifinte checked my configuration!! even went on the forums to search about the problem, seems others have similar problems, some of them were solved, but they did simple things like not include /dev file system... which is required. i have all that and more, i have support for all my hardware, and everything!!

I have a AMD Athlon XP 2500+ on an Abit Mobo with a VIA chipset. I'm trying to upgrade my gentoo kernel.

The panic i get is something to the lines of this :

VFS: Cannot open root device "hda3" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)

So, for all you linux guru's out there.. here's my Collapse )

and here's my Collapse )</lj-cut
