Makepkg makepkg.conf Optimizations

Here are my /etc/makepkg.conf Optimizations

Makepkg.conf is used whenever you build a package from the Aur or any other source. (makepkg -si)

1) Set -march and -mtune to native to optimize packages to your CPU architecture.
Do not fiddle with this if you are building packages for someone else who has different CPU

Code:
CFLAGS="-march=native -mtune=native -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong --param=ssp-buffer-size=4"
CXXFLAGS="-march=native

With sadness I had to bid goodbye to Ubuntu 12.10. No, it was not Unity, because I quite liked it.
Just that applications began crashing once too often. When this became a constant irritation, the nearest I could think of was Mint. So for now sorry Ubuntu.
I also managed to install Arch Linux on a dual boot with Linux Mint. I tested the installation procedure as described in the Arch Wiki in Virtual Box first. After a few misfires I managed to get it right. Then I backed up all data...

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....
