sound in mandrake


you need to configure your soundcard.
you could use setup.

I get the same problem with "RedHat 7.1".
I'd try to run setup, but i don't know where it is located.
Is there a setup on the CD?

(sorry, i could'n check because i don't have the cd at the moment.)

Thank you.

In red hat I think it is sndconfig or snd-config. But your sound card has to be supported

Yes, there is sound on Mandrake.
Can't help you much on configuring your soundcard though.

If you are using KDE, you can use HardDrake click on hardware then sound. It will try to configure your card there.

Or as stated in another post use sndconfig at the prompt.
