Network and Audio Driver
Configuration"> Although the server will now boot and run, you dont yet have audio and networking services from the nForce chipset, and the drivers for the Hauppauge WinTV card are going to also require some tweaking. At press time, were still unsure as to why the Hauppauge drivers arent loaded, given that Red Hats Anaconda installer recognizes the WinTV hardware, but were still investigating. Youll need to get the nVidia nForce chipset driver onto the server, but youre in a bit of a Catch-22 here: you cant download it, because your networking driver isnt working yet, and the driver wont work until you download it. Kind of like bringing home a DVD player that comes with a DVD that shows you how to install itOnce you get it loaded onto the server, using either of the above-mentioned methods, run the RPM, and once it completes its run, reboot the system, and the nForce Ethernet driver will now be ready for action. The audio driver will be almost ready for action, but will require one small tweak. The nVidia audio driver tweak is a very simple one. Using Red Hats GUI, navigate over to the /etc sub-directory, and find a file called MODULES.CONF. Open this file using gedit, and find the following line:
There are two ways around this problem: either download the driver on another machine and burn it onto a CD-R or CD-R/W disc so you can copy it to the server or, download the driver on the second machine and copy it to a floppy. Youll then need to temporarily put a floppy drive in the server to be able to copy the RPM to the servers hard disk. The RPM is quite small, by the way, weighing in at a mere 88KB.
alias sound-slot1 i810_audioYoull need to change this line to read:
alias sound-slot0 i810_audioNext, save the file and exit gedit. Reboot the system, and youll now have working audio hardware. To verify that the audio driver components have loaded, bring up a command-line session, and type lsmod. At this point, the output of lsmod should look like this:
