  1. Aye same here. Been a little while for me...sadly, still a noob though.
  2. Tried it, but it still doesn't work. I don't get any error messages or anything, it just doesn't play. The strange thing is that I cant scroll for some reason, its always on PCM. And Kaffeine always shows the sound as muted regardless of the state of the system speaker or alsamixer.
  3. It didn't work. I ended up downloading and installing Fox Desktop Professional (had Lite before) and trying the instructions again, Firefox 2 seems to be working fine now. I currently have both 1.5 and 2.0 installed (not sure why I want to keep em both) and they both work fine.
  4. Can someone please give the answer to this one? I have the same problem where my sound card is detected, but no sound is being played. Alsa is already unmuted on both channels, and the link to the 'solution' loads the page below. Thanks!
  5. Ok, heres the situation. Linux (meaning Fedora Core 5) is installed perfectly fine on my desktop (an old Dell Dimension) and it works fine but when I install it on my laptop (an HP Pavilion dv6110us) it has all sorts of problems. From vanishing mice, to just not booting at all. After looking around for a while, I saw where I could solve the mouse problem by booting to runlevel 3 and then starting the x server there, but this didn't address the problem of it freezing during bootup at times. I downloaded and installed FC6 but it had the same problems that FC5 had so eventually, after trying several other distributions, I found FOX desktop which seems to always boot and operate properly except for the sound card and wireless NIC thing. This is where I'm at now. It appears that Fox is based on FC4, so I assume that the problem with the drivers is that it uses an outdated kernel. My question now now are: 1. How does one check to see what version of the Linux Kernel is being used with his distribution? 2. How does one download and upgrade to the most recent one? I may be able to handle the download part, but upgrading the kernel on my own is way beyond my abilities at this point I believe. 3. If I upgrade the kernel to...say the kernel that FC6 uses, should I expect Fox to behave in the same way that FC5 and 6 did in that it'd pick up the habit of booting only if it feels generous? Another reason for wanting to upgrade the kernel, though I'm not sure if this actually has anything to do with it, is that when trying the firefox installation instructions that was given by hybrid, it wouldn't work in Fox but later after I tried it in FC5 on my desktop, it worked perfectly. Any help would be appreciated, even if it was with the previous problem of FC not booting at times. -ZackaryNix52
  6. Tried it but it didn't work. I even tried using the console to make the firefox file an executable but that didnt work either. It keeps referring to it as a shell script. Any other ideas?
  7. Ok, so I downloaded firefox2.0 and now I can't install it. I'm a total n00b to the entire linux world so bear with me here. I was able to download and install the flash and java plugins for firefox 1.5 due to detailed installation instructions, but all I get from the firefox site with regards to installing 2.0 is: Yeah. As one can see, it doesn't exactly state how to go about it for us hopelessly new users. Any help would be appreciated. Next problem, didn't want to go create another topic while I still got this one, is that I can't get my sound to work. I get this error message everytime I log on. My wireless also doesn't work. Assistance again please! P.S. I'm using an HP Pavillion dv6110us, dual booting between Windows Media Center & Fox Desktop 1 lite. Specs for laptop are: Processor AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50; 1.6GHz Memory 1024MB DDR2 SDRAM Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 with up to 128MB (shared) Hard drive 100GB (5400RPM) SATA Hard Drive Primary CD/DVD drive Super Multi DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support Display 15.4" WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280x800) Display Wireless connectivity 802.11b/g wireless LAN External ports 2 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0, 1 Headphone out, 1 microphone-in, 1 notebook expansion port 3, 1 Consumer IR Communications Integrated 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN Sound Internal Altec Lansing speakers THANKS!!
