it is not exactly what I would recommend for the beginning Linux
can install ALSA sound drivers for both of the cards you
are both excellent cards with M-Audio USB Audiophile rated in
few (<=5) cards by many audio officianados. My tests with
running under windows is that the card is second only
to Lynx L22.
want, you can install Suse linux which I recommend, it comes
ALSA support and you cards will be identified at install.
has abandoned Linux 9.0 type installations and no further
be offered after April next year.
has purchased Suse and IBM bought $50,000,000 worth of the
immediately. IBM is supporting Linux and open source
big way. RedHat is spinning off the Fedora project but has
you "sign up for a mailing list to get support". Support for
home networks (those that need DHCP and Named)
$450 under the new RedHat Enterprise offerings. I refuse to
anything further to do with RedHat and have installed
my last of it
RedHat 9. Suse is next for me.
I am just getting started setting up Linux. I
purchased a book "Sams Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux 9 in 24 Hours", and it
came with 2 install discs for Red Hat 9. Before I get started, has anyone had
any experience with 9? Should I just plod away at converting my new computer
to Linux? I have a 2.8Ghz P4, 512MB DDR SDRAM , 160GB HD,and NVIDIA FX 5200
graphics. I also have a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz audio card and a M-Audio USB
Audiophile external audio device. I suspect I'll have to buy a Delta 44 card
sense I could not find Linux drivers for my above audio cards.
