Mixed Bag

Posted 08-17-2011 at 06:14 AM by brianL

Tried again and failed. Still getting that mass/mess of letters and symbols after loading the kernel message. Looks like it's reading the kernel rather than loading it. Did find someone with the same problem, but he used Windows to solve it.
Very reluctant to go down that road. I'll try again sometime, when I'm in the right mood.

Seems like a long time ago I said I would return to Windows, Jan 2010 to be closer.
Well, it didn't last long back then but I have gone back to Windows again.
This time it looks like I'm staying with Windows after over 10 years of only Linux. I was a huge advocate for Linux and spouted the message a'high. I initially learned a lot here at LXQ to get over the hurdles that are placed on everything Linux.

In praise of ALSA and alsaequal

On a related note, 'alsaequal', a graphic equaliser for ALSA is a really under appreciated tool. I have set it to my default alsa device through .asoundrc:

ctl.equal {

pcm.plugequal {
        type equal;
        # Modify the line below if you don't
        # want to use sound card
