Purpose:
Some senior forum members will remember that in olden times, we listened to radio, using devices which had rather simple knobs for power on/off and tuning, to select the radio station of our choice. This study attempts to compare several Linux distributions with the aim of identifying the best distributions available, for music enthusiasts, who wish to tune in to the world's music, without having to sit at a keyboard, typing earnestly, instead of doing whatever

Sound on flash and everywhere else at the same time, in Arch

Posted 08-13-2010 at 12:57 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags alsa, arch, flash, oss, sound

There had been a weird problem with sound on Arch. Whenever there was a flash item being displayed (or perhaps flash using sound, I suppose), there would be no sound elsewhere. And if there were sound elsewhere, whenever you play something on flash, it would conversely be mute.

The fix is quite simple:

Notes on how I may have managed to get wacom tablet to work on Arch, before I completely forget it

Posted 08-13-2010 at 09:35 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

By "work" I mean having "hovering" and "keepshape" mode, not just a worthless slow "pen-mouse". My thinking is that it wasn't working due to concurrent configuration files. There isn't only xorg.conf, but on /etc/X11 there is a xorg.conf.d folder, and there there was a ##-wacom.conf or something, with different settings than the ones I had set manually on xorg.conf.

HAL is deprecated, or something like that, and I don't have any .fdi file for...

Canon Canoscan Lide 25 on Arch Linux 2.6.34

Posted 08-13-2010 at 09:25 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Apparently I got it working. It did do a preview scan, with color, on xsane, as a normal user, so it's almost 100% sure it is OK. The only thing I think I may have had to do different from Debian was to set a udev rule and change user permissions/ownership on /var/lock/sane. Some people said that just udev or permissions alone would do it, but I had the impression I needed both, but that's possibly wrong. I don't see anything wrong in having both, so I'll just leave it as it is, as it is working....

Certified idiots

I just saw a post in one of the forums, I almost replied there but this isn't really a proper and/or constructive response, so it goes here instead, this is one thing that really irks me: Technical certifications.

I really couldn't care less about your 'certifications' - they do not impress me one bit, in fact I actually have a cynical hostile contempt for them. I know it's kinda discriminating and generalizing, but it's based on my own personal and professional experience for decades....
