I've been using linux since Sunday night (less than 3 days ago), and I've learned a lot, but I'm still not an expert by any means. I got just about everything I consider essential set up and running, except for a media player. The media player I used when I was on Windows was called foobar2000. It is hands down the best audio player ever. Nothing even comes close. Since foobar is windows only, I am going to have to install wine.
I installed it from a package a few days ago and I got it working. The only problem was the sound being very fuzzy and choppy. I found this post on wine's bugzilla
that basically spells out my problem perfectly. A few post down, it has a .diff file listed that I already downloaded, and a few registry entries, when which I've already installed. Now how on earth do I go about applying the .diff file to the source and recompiling it? I know I have to get the source using cvs, as described here
, but then what do I do? I don't even know where cvs put the source after I downloaded it? I tried looking at cvs's manpage, but its like 32902384 pages long, and I'm quite going mad because I'm not understanding a 5th of it all.
Could an expert walk me through it?
