Thread: Kernel upgrade with rpm.

  1. Kernel upgrade with rpm.

    Background info:
    P4, system Mandriva 2006, kernel 2.6.12-12mdk,
    Sound card SB Live!

    Problem:
    Sound works with mic and earphones plugged into jacks at front
    of machine but no sound from computer speakers. XP system on
    same computer does the reverse, no sound in earphones - main
    speakers ok.

    Query 1:
    Would installation of the following downloaded kernel
    kernel-multimedia-2.6.12-12.mm.1mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm
    automatically modify lilo to include this as a boot option as
    well as the current linux options and the XP option?

    Query 2:
    Would this solve the problem?

    Any help would be appreciated..

    Yes.

    Probably not.
    The SBlive is a bog-standard soundcard, which should hae been supported a
    long time ago. If it is not, then there is probably some hardware
    weirdness.
