You need to etract the file using the archive tool,probabaly ARK OR ARC.
Then extract the tar file.
Then,there is a readme file and what appears to be an automatic installer labeled install.

if you need any more info just ask
Click on "Configure your Computer-Administration Center" The screwdriver/wrench button.

After entering root password and Control Center opens, click on the hardware tab.

Then click "Look at and Configure the Hardware."

Click on the info line below below where it says "Soundcard" Mine says "IXP400 AC'97 Audio Controller" (Left Pane)

At the very bottom of the right side pane you will see "Run config tool", click it.

Mine says:
"Here you can select an alternative driver (either OSS or ALSA) for your sound card (ATI Technologies Inc.|IXP400 AC'97 Audio Controller).

Your card currently use the ALSA "snd-atiixp" driver (default driver for your card is "snd-atiixp")"

I think you can go from there.

If no luck, you know where to find me.

Yes. With the LiveCD.
I'm off to bed.
Will have a look first thing in the am. I think there was another driver I used once that worked too.
I'll get back to you. Right away. Just too tired now.

In the meantime, might be a good idea to make sure you are completely updated.

When did you install PCLOS and did the sound ever work with it, including with the LiveCD?

Do you know your speakers work?

Have you updated the system through Synaptic Package Manager?



Edit: Girlfriend just told me she noticed PCLOS needs volume to be turned up compared to XPSP2.

This happened to me one one of my computers - after DL'ing drivers and fussing with it for two days I discovered that all I had to do was to
open KMix
Push the PCM slider all the way up
And SOUND!
