Sub_title: !!!!!I HAVE SOUND!!!! Switched to 4.3, better for old sound cards
 

I've been reviving an old laptop, dell latitude cpi with 300 p2.

I boot puppy from live cd. Haven't found a way to get the sound working. Alsa config doesn't seem to be up to the challenge.

Hoping there might be a patch or something to get it to configure the sound.

Warning: I'm ignorant to Linux. Technical words may hurt me.

Hi Earthray

Sub_title: thanks. keep sending me info please. Don't know what i'm doing.
 

Wow. You guys are clearly a good deal brighter than me. I used to think I was pretty bright because of how proficient I've become with Windows.

I do not understand 9/10's of what was said there, but I'll keep looking at it. One of the replies had some pretty straightforward directions I think I can follow.

thanks again.

Hi I pm'd ttuuxxx about this, to see if his updated 214R might be better for you

He has added drivers, but also made a .pet for the new alsa [sound controller] which you could try also

214xx - 2 series latest updates - better for older pc's

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42553

alsa

http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/ttuuxxx/2.14series/alsa/alsa-lib-1.0.20-i386.pet

http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/ttuuxxx/2.14series/alsa/alsa-utils-1.0.20-i386.pet

good luck

PostPosted: Mon 07 Sep 2009, 14:19    Post_subject: A small step, Bios
Sub_title: upgrade
 

Okay, so I made a first step:

I upgraded my bios from A03 to A12...
A terrifying experience with warnings throughout the process. What if there's a power failure? OMG! I can't take the pressure!

Success. No power failure. I did not accidently kick the power cord out. The thing practically did itself. Thank God Dell doesn't trust the user!

Okay, in a bit, I will reboot puppy and see what happens.

Sub_title: I don't have access to the links
 

I tried the two links to puppylinuxasia, but I do not have access. Now what do I do?

Puppy booted fine in the new bios, by the way. I haven't noticed much of a difference... maybe just a little faster boot time for both my systems, puppy and win2k.

Sub_title: Audio fixer widget please!!!!
 

Somebody please tell me there's a tool, widget or utility that can help me fix this sound thing. Audio I believe is legacy with soundblaster drivers. Crying or Very sad

Step-by-step instructions would help too...

So I downloaded the files using the default pup-get, which installed, and now it says to reboot. So here I go. I'm not sure what to expect on the other side. Confused
