Do you get sound if you plug the speakers directly into the front of the cd drive? I don't use cdplay, but i know some older versions of winamp (back in the days when i was a clueless windows zombie) wouldn't play sound through the soundcard unless you had a audio cable connecting it to the cdrom dr...

I would guess that you used gnome with redhat, and KDE with SuSE? I think SuSE defaults to KDE... the name GTK Gnutella suggests that it's a gtk (gnome) app, which could explain problems running it in SuSE (if you use KDE). Still, i've never had any real problems running gtk aps in KDE, they run bet...

SuSe release all their stuff i think, but they only provide ISOs of their latest releases to subscribers. You can run SuSe 8.2 (is that the most recent version? i'm not a SuSe fan), but you have to manually download the packages, create a boot disk, run setup... isn't too hard, i've done it before w...

Does sound work if you run rtcw as root? If so, one way to fix it (quick and dirty, someone might want to clean this up a bit) is to do, as root chown root:users /dev/dsp chown root:users /dev/mixer chmod 770 /dev/dsp chmod 770 /dev/mixer I can't help you with the punkbuster thing, pb has never give...

I did this ages ago for blackbox. From what i remember, you need to create a file "xfce" in /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions containing #!/bin/bash -login /etc/gdm/Sessions/Xsession windowmaker then you may need to edit /etc/gdm/Sessions/Xsession to make sure that in the large case clause (starting with case %...
