Where could I download puppy 1.0.7? I googled for quite a while, but am not finding any links that work! Thanks.

someone changed all the puppy sites and i am lost

dotpups.de has a link to isos but the lin is dead

and the old version fan club is up for sale

this disappearance of the past is my least favorite puppy feature

if you don't mind waiting a little while...

[i have NO money at all and possibly some other person will have a better solution]

...you can pm me your mailing address and i'll send you a copy

Hi bugman, thanks for the reply. You can just upload the file onto this site by using the "Add an Attachment" part just under the box where you type the message. Thanks for your work.

p.s. I looked up "The Republic of Lakotah" that sounds like an interesting place to live.

that will be a little while too

i am on dialup and can only use it for longer periods of time before noon and need to get work done most of the time i am using it

[i actually am working right now in another tab]

some day i would like to get rid of dialup and replace it with nothing

the republic of lakotah?

it is all in the minds of a few hundred indians minds [and mine]

they are angry a lot [you would be too]

i just like being an expat [if only in my own head]

I got both empty crust and simple pup running, but I need to find modules before I can run the sound. Does anyone know where I can download sound modules? Thanks

What modules?

try typing in a console

Code:
# aplay /usr/share/audio/2barks.au


did you try running alsamixer ?

The mute may be on or the volumes down

Hi,
To go back to your original post, I don't know if this may be related, if you were using 3.01

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=24608

I would still check mixer settings, though

I think you misunderstand how audio in Linux works. Puppy already contains drivers for all supported sound cards. Since Puppy version 1.0.8 these are the ALSA drivers. Prior to version 1.0.8 Puppy had the old OSS drivers.
The question is which driver to use, and what configuration options that driver may require.
It appears that your AD1812-based sound card is soundblaster compatible. So I would speculate that it should work with the snd-sb8 module.

I disabled the plug and play in both the bios and the kernel

Yes, that's a good start. Without this setting, ISA-based devices can be problematic in Linux. Actually, if you have disabled the PnP option in bios, it's not necessary to do the same thing with a kernel parameter.
Try the automatic configuration first. Run the ALSA Sound Wizard, and select "sb16".
If no success, you must now try some manual configuration. Open /etc/modprobe.conf in geany and you will see these lines at the bottom -
Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd-sb8
alias sound-slot-0 snd-sb8
options snd-sb8 irq=? dma8=? port=?

Now you will need to find out the card's hardware settings - irq/dma8/port, and manually change these values in modprobe.conf
Reboot after each change.

Better still, throw that sound card in the bin and replace it with a more mainstream sound card, preferably PCI instead of ISA.

I ended up using another computer that was newer. I am not having any further sound card problems with any computers. Thanks
