Re: ISA sound in Linux
Since version 7.3, Redhat have removed support for ISA devices. If you have a older computer that uses an ISA sound device (such as my Asus L7200 laptop with Yamaha OPL3 chip), the ISA device will not be recognized. What you need to do is to download the ISAPNPTOOLS package. Unzip and untar the file and then follow the readme file's instruction to compile, install and configure it. You will also need to add the sound device module to /etc/modules.conf. After that the sound should work. Refer to the Linux Howtos for more information. Since 2005, Linux ALSA sound architecture support pretty much have eliminated that issue even for ISA sound devices.

Puppy Linux from what i've heard. But they best way is to try a couple variants and get used to the way linux handles itself. Then look a the bigger names like Fedora and RedHat to see if they offer more. Puppy Linux can be booted from a flashdrive making it easy to dual boot with practially any system without losing what you already have.
<p><span>Email is an important part of any Web site that you create. In a home environment, a free web based email service may be sufficient, but if you are running a business, then a dedicated mail server will be required. <span>A mail server is an application that receives incoming e-mail from local users (people within the same</span><span> </span><span><span>domain)</span> and remote senders and forwards outgoing e-mail for delivery, as example Microsoft</span><span> </span><span><span>Exchange</span>, Gmail,</span><span> </span><span><span>etc.</span></span></span><span> <span> </span></span><span><span>The system uses</span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>SMTP </span></span><span><span>(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) or <span>ESMTP </span>(extended SMTP) for sending e-mail, and either</span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>POP3</span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>(Post Office Protocol 3) or <span>IMAP</span></span></span><span><span> </span></span><span><span>(Internet Message Access Protocol) for receiving e-mail</span></span><span><span>. </span></span><span><span>In windows forum</span></span><span><span> most of workstations are use Microsoft Exchange server or outlook express. In Linux forum there have also an easiest option to send and receive mail. In Linux configuration of mail server is easy flexible too.</span></span><span></SPAN><br>
<p><span><span> </SPAN>In most of Linux workstation RedHat Linux are used for their Server. In RedHat Linux we use sendmail to create a mail server that will relay your mail to a remote user's mailbox or incoming mail to a local mail box. On our RedHat we will find sendmail's configuration file as /etc/sendmail.cf. If you download and compile sendmail you would find it in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf. To configure sendmail you have basically 2 options. Either you edit the sendmail.cf file directly or you create the sendmail.cf from an m4 file such as sendmail.mc. Here to explain the process I will list the steps to produce a custom sendmail.mc file.</SPAN><br>
<p><span><span><b>SendMail Configuration:</b></SPAN></SPAN><span> </SPAN><span><span> </SPAN>In Redhat Linux dovecot and sendmail packages are used as service demon for Mail server. At first I install the available sendmail RPM package by YUM and also the dovecot RPM. After installation first I have edit the sendmail .mc file. After installation of sendmail package it locates as sendmail.mc in /etc/mail. In the sendmail.mc file I have find the line DAEMON_OPTION and edit it with # before the line to uncheck it. Then I find Local Domain and edit it also with the system FQDN. After editing save the sendmail.mc file. After exiting from sendmail.mc I moved this .mc file to sendmail.cf with m4. Here the SendMail configuration is complete. Then I go to the /etc/dovecot.conf file and edit it. I just find the protocol line and uncheck this line. After that I save this .conf file. After all configurations I have start the service demons with chkconfig command and restart the both services. And the mail server was going on swiftly.</SPAN><br>
<p><span><span> </SPAN>So it is very easiest job to configure a mail server in RedHat Linux enterprise server.</SPAN>
<span>In a recent days in our lab I've got a with Linux file system. <span> </span>Our lab used Redhat Linux 5.3 Enterprise version. Redhat Linux is an Unix based Operating System and It based on Ext3 file system</span><br />
<span></span> <br />
<span><span>Problem of Linux:<span> The systen cannot access internet. It shows the license expiry error notification. Some</span></span><span>time it doesn't detect the hard drive. Some time the pc can detect hard drive but the Linux started with some errors of file system. Finally the file system of the OS getting crashed and can't boot. At GRUB loading stage it become restarted.</span></span><br />
<span><span></span></span> <br />
<span><span><span>Solution or Troubleshooting: </span><span>If I replace the hard drive cable It detect well and start OS also. Then the pc can detect hard drive but the Linux started with some errors of file system. Then I discovered that there is a problem with OS.<span> </span>Though formatting can solve the problem but that needs a backup of important data. This is time consuming and risky. So I thought to repair the file system</span>.</span></span><br />
<span><span><span></span></span></span> <br />
<span><span><span>At first I'm trying to login in single user mode and repair the file system. I have tried to login by pressing "s" beside kernel at startup in single user mode. But the system doesn't boot. Then I'm trying to repair the OS by RedHat Linux CD. I <span> </span>Insert the CD and select rescue mode by pressing "F5" key. Then I got the single user mode. After that I check all file system sequentially. </span></span></span><span><span><span>/etc /passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/securetty, /etc/pam.d/login. Those file was wrong. I updated those file by correcting. Then I update the auth config file. After that I boot the system again. But now also it don't get start. Then I rescue the grub by grub-rescue and also update the kernel. After the total process I'm tried again to login from single user mode in root and It get logged. After that I reboot the system and tried to login. Finally it logged in successfully and run properly.<img src="alokerdas.jpg" /></span></span></span>
Who told you that this MB is not Linux compatible? There is no reason that this MB should not work with REDHAT, DEBIAN, or any other flavor or Linux. The Realtek driver is generic to REDHAT and it should find the hardware automatically. What is your specific problem?
