Load multiple soundcard drivers in order

Posted 06-07-2011 at 08:16 AM by DJ Shaji

I recently bought a SoundBlaster Live! 5.1vx to record music in full 24 bits per sample, and so now I have two soundcards - one PCI card and one built-in on the motherboard.

One issue that had been bugging me for a while - not that problematic, but an issue nonetheless - I have Fedora 14 - because modern distros search for and load modules in parallel to speed up the boot process, the result is that the order in which modules will be loaded becomes unpredictable. So, the soundcards...

Object oriented programming perl

Posted 06-06-2011 at 02:55 PM by karthik3152

There are many chances that you may get confused with Perl Object Programming

To make the point clear let us first look at references at Perl

@friends = ("Rachael","Phoebs");
%animals = ('donald' => 'duck','mickey' => 'mouse' );

To intiaize references to a variable use:
In case of array:
$ref = \@friends
In case of hashes
ref = \%animals;

OpenSUSE 11.4 continued

Posted 06-05-2011 at 07:58 PM by TwinReverb

Today I continued with a fresh 11.4 DVD 32bit of OpenSUSE. During installation I found the option to go with a LVM encrypted (i.e. LUKS+LVM) so I went with that after deleting all partitions on the machine.

Slacker installs OpenSUSE 11.4

Posted 06-05-2011 at 04:46 AM by TwinReverb

So I figured I'd try OpenSUSE 11.4 on my netbook (Asus 900A) today, and write down my experience with it as I go.

First, when booting the installer, I noticed that during the configuration phase, when partitioning my hard drive, it picked some odd options (to me), like putting root and /home on extended partitions, etc. I thought to myself, no big deal, I'll custom partition with the root size it had decided (5GB). Well /dev/sda2 was already a LUKS but I told it I wanted to start...
