Trouble shooting ALSA on Debian

Absolute Linux 13.1.2

Posted 07-16-2010 at 11:22 PM by masinick

I installed Absolute Linux 13.1.2 on Friday evening and I've been using it for a few hours now. It features a nicely customized IceWM lightweight window manager, a slimmed down set of Slackware packages. By default, in place of the usual Firefox, you see the Google Chromium Web browser, which is starting to mature nicely. You can block ads now, and you can add a lot of convenience applications.
