I see that there is now a new desktop icon for the "Computer". I was
wondering why this icon is a straight-on perspective and not the
standard bluecurve perspective LCD-monitor computer icon (the one seen
in the graphical boot and in the System Settings icon.
I have tried that driver/modue before without luck. Although i will try it
again. the model of the laptop is hard becuase its a re-badge. It is labled
Notebook (which is not much help). It uses the sis650 graphics set and 7012
Thanks for the advice, i wi try that module again and see how i go I will
report back with the error.

Andrew, It would help to know the exact model of your Notebook. I have one
Desknote from ECS that uses that chip and , although no sound when leaving
it with the default driver, it works ok with the Intel810 Audio. Try it.
Haven?t done it with Fedora yet, but that was the case in Mandrake and Red
Hat, so I figure it is a common glitch.

After quite a few years of using RedHat, I bought the Enterprise 3 WS
distribution and installed it on a Dell Dimension desktop. I had been running
RedHat v7.2 and it was, as usual, performing excellently. I was also planning
to install it on my Web server, also running v7.2.
However, the result was abysmal. Many of the applications didn't work
properly or didn't work at all, Tcl-Tk wasn't there (although I eventually
did manage to find it on one of the CDs - the Enterprise package system is
pathetic), the USB ports disappeared and in the end, I simply had to
reinstall v7.2 to get anything done. I didn't dare try installing on my Web
As the subject line says, I'd like to stick with RedHat - it's been very good
to me over the years, and I'm wondering if the Fedora stuff is continuing
what I thought was the RedHat tradition of usability.
Thanks for your patience and any advice you can provide.

Long time Linux user but I'm having trouble with SIS7012 audio chipset on my
laptop. I have played around with modules and various sound config tools but
having trouble still. No audio at all (it has worked previously with
'alternative' operating systems.
I would like to hear from anyone with experience with this chipset. Cheers.
I am new to Fedora Core and am having trouble geting
it to run on my laptop. I have a Compaq Presario
2580, 40GB, 512 MB 802.11g 10/100NIC, CDRW/DVD. I
have loaded the program, configured boot to dual boot
with Win XP (The borg). When I select Fedora from my
boot list it starts and then freezes direcly after it
says loading local drives.
If anyone has information on how I can fix this eror I
would greatly appriciate the help. I love linux, and
had it running on my old Dell laptop, Redhat 8.0. I
can run a live eval of SuSE 8.1, so I dont think it is
a campatability issue, but I still cant configure
Feora to run.
Please help me.
