did you try the alternate ISO? i read about how it solves a lot of hardware driver probs... unless your audio card is really new
Linux is awesome!
I use Ubuntu Studio v7.10 dual booted with Vista
Once i get (or build) another computer, Linux will be my main OS.
The only reason it isn't right now is because I cant find the right driver for my soundcard (Realtek HDA). I've tried the ALSA drivers, but it doesn't seem to work
Does anyone know if Hardy will support these soundcards???
Yes, it's new. Only Vista supported hardware in it
Toshiba Satellite A205-S4577; it has alot of potential to be a good computer but it has Vista on it, so it's pretty slow
Does anyone who knows ubuntu know what driver to install for this soundcard(in red):

this should workCode:sudo apt-get uninstall *the printer driver package you installed*
thanks, rob64, but it was a deeper problem which i didn't take time to list symptomsOriginally Posted by ROB64
i followed a link to an old copy of software and it didn't install all the way... the new version wouldn't install until i removed the old one.
if this makes sense to you i googled and found the following solution that solved it:
this is the crazy stuff i fumbled around with a year ago when i got sick of breaking my OS... i think i'm wiser now, though
- sudo touch /etc/init.d/lpd
- suco schmod +x /etc/init.d/lpd
thanks for help rob64
I just, and i mean just, got Ubuntu and i must say i do enjoy it. My windows xp kept getting the blue screen of death. The only problem i had with the installation was a Grub error 21 but after playing around i was able to fix it no problem.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That away, when you criticize them, you're a mile way and you have their shoes.
and why would i wanna do that when my usb port which will go max ~200mbps compared to the wireless which goes max 54mbps.Originally Posted by FRuMMaGe
