First I want to say THANK YOU to everybody who has posted questions and the gurus who have answered them. I downloaded Knoppix yesterday and I was able to get most things working simply by scanning this forum. I am stuck on two things though. I can't get my soundcard working even though it is detected and I cant get my wireless card working. oh and 1 more thing, when i type dmesg, I get a screen FULL of

EXT2-fs error (device ide0 (3,5): ext2_write_inode: unable to read inode block - inode=xxxxx, block=xxxxx
remounting filesystem read-only.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hardware
Compaq Presario 900US laptop
512 mb
30 Gb
AT&T Lucent Wireless card

Thanks in advance!

FYI - It's generally easier if you only ask one question per post.

Did you install Knoppix to your hard drive or are you just booting the CD?

when you type dmesg try it like this:

dmesg | more

It will let you view all of the message without pushing it off the screen. Post the output.


I cant get my wireless card working.

open a terminal and type this:

netcardconfig
Hopefully that gets you connected.


I can't get my soundcard working even though it is detected

open a terminal and type this"

sndconfig

Post the output.

Open a terminal and type this:

lsmod

Post the output.
