August 2nd, 2008, 08:39 PM
Installed from a dvd & booted 8.04 to a Dell OptiPlex PIII 550mhz 512 MB ram 10 GB HD.
Sound Preferances--Sound Events tried all four test options
=could not open audio device for playback or failed to connect stream :invalid argument.
Dell has linux sound driver--SBlive.rpm
SynapticPackage Manager can't handle .rpm files.
Best options ?
