[ltp] Thinkpad 600E and Mandrake
Sat, 1 Jun 2002 20:54:10 +0100
Thanks VM (and to wes also), I now have sound and IRQ's are set as below- I
did get the modem module to load, but only with my PCMCIA Network card
removed - it's grabbing IRQ 3 - the modem still didn't work even with the
card out. But I think I can get around that.
Is there anyway that I can force the NIC to use a different IRQ? I've no idea
which one it should use though - looks like they're all taken.
Thanks to all.
I guess Linux is still really only for the very brave!
