ATI, sound and console

receive any answer... I am also new in Thunderbird!)
    Hello everyone,

    I salute the tremendous work of the development team and I thank 
them. I hope the spirit of this team will always remain, just as one who 
leads the project "Damned Small Linux", for exemple.

    I hope to permanently abandon my Suse 10.3 + KDE 3.5.10, and is keen 
to stay with KDE 3.5 TDE Trinity.

    The issues regarding this that I have with the "Trinity-Enterprise" 
distribution (kubuntu 10.10) are:
    I have no sound. KMix opens with the mixer "PulseAudio" by default 
and I have to reconfigure each time in VIA_8237. Also, I use the entry 
"Line" physical and when the configuration is correct, this input is 
sent to the audio output of the computer and the level of output (input 
signal from the "Line", so) is well controlled. But there is no sound 
from TDE that is audible (noatun or amarok, for example)
    I can not install the drivers for my ATI graphics card. The packets 
manager says that the ATI drivers are installed. The various tutorials 
found are all refering to the Gnome menus...

    These difficulties are well borring, but I can wait for the next 
distribution, hopping that Gnome will  coexist with TDE anabling to 
choise the window manager (gnome or tde) at the login time.

    Also: The "standard" console (i.e. reached with "Ctrl+Alt+F1") is 
reachable only once. Is it normal, being a SELinux feature, for exemple 
?  The key "page-up" does not work the way I know in Kconsole or in 
standard console: Typing "/etc/init.d/" then page-up displays the last 
command entered starting with  "/etc/init.d/"... an other SELinux feature ?

    Thank you,
