  1. Hello. I read through this thread ( https://www.linux-noob.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=3277 ) trying to get my 300n card working in Fedora 8 using NDISWRAPPER but fell short and can't tell why. Here are the steps I did in order and with as much detail as possible, but in the end I had no results. Ideas? So I installed NDISWRAPPER v.1.5.2 I downloaded the .inf files from linksys for the 300n and unpacked then in my home directory. One thing that seperated my system from the pointed thread above where I got my howto from, my lsusb gave no real hint it saw the Linksys device.

Here is a paste from the terminal of the install, and after I see no wlan0, if I go to Netowrk config in KDE, it does nto show new hardware. I am confused.

  2. Ok. So yes, there are a few threads out there about sound failures in Fedora Core 5 etc. But I do not believe they are directly the same problem I am having here. Upon "SoundCard Detection" it says it is playing a sound, but I do not hear it. It seems to have all the right info on the card, but to what end if no sound comes out? If I say No I did not hear a sound, I recieve the following error. that particular file says the following. (see Figure: scsound.log) Now the funny thing is, I tried using alsamixer, but to no result. All the channels are at about 50%+ and none of them Muted. To extent, the following commands, also do nothing to help me. and.... Which DO to my knowledge means online, no power state. And I know this works under windows XP. HOWEVER, using the alsactl power command, I noticed something. The command alsactl power on should result in a power change, but instead, I get this. *sigh. Can anyone throw me a bone here? I mean, I could swear that at one point while running Windows XP and throwing in KNOPPIX DVD, that the volume worked. BUT, if I had the volume at say 10% on windows, then booted knoppix, it would stay at 10% no matter what, mute or not. And I can swear, don't hold me to it, that I once had FC4 installed on this laptop when the sound didnt work, I then installed Windows, turned my sound to abotu 50% and then booted linux and it worked at 50% only. Unfortunately, I cannot load windows back onto this laptop, as a. no room b. irreplaceable time and effort into customization. Hopefully someone here understands me or had this porblem. any Ideas? --Kelly Criag *figure: scsound.log*
  3. Nice Dan. Mind telling me how to undo the changes to yum? I liked my old yum better., -.-
