Question FAQs


I'm using SuSE Linux 9.2 Professional.
I have 2 windows partitions on hda1 n hda 6.
I need all reading writing as well as executing permissions when logged in as a user.
My current fstab entry is

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat auto,users,rw 0 0
/dev/hda6 /mnt/win_d vfat auto,users,rw 0 0

I tried defaults 0 0 in that last column but it doesnt work...i also tried unmask=000 0 0
tht too doesnt work


If i want to run a multiline code for some application ... say "cd azureas" & then "./azureas" how do i make a launcher for the same?


I have ASUS motherboard & some onboard sound card. Everytime i try some different distribution of linux the sound quality isnt good in XMMS or woteva.How do i get windows media player quality in linux?any player that u recommend?

hi there,

afaik, this has nothing to do with the player. if you have your sound system corrected installed the basic players should give quite similiar sound quality. this issue can be dependet of 1.E6 parameters, such as hardware, distro, kernel, blah, blah.
also, describe as "sound quality is not good" is a bit relative. is there sound at all? how? the sound is the same in any player? more input...

regards

feel free to spell properly.... "abt" ????

you should be able to add multiple commands to a launcher, e.g. "cmd1; cmd2"

as for sound... care to expand on "some sound card" ?? what driver are you using? alsa? oss?

and as for fstab, add umask=000 to the options list for each entry

i need 2 run 2 commands in a launcher.
the commands are..
1. cd /home/shantesh/crclient/
2. ./crclient -u shantesh

so i wrote these 2 commands in the launcher as "cd /home/shantesh/crclient/; ./crclient -u shantesh"
& also i checked the option for running it in terminal

This connects me to internet ....actually its a client based login wot i'm doing....but it doesnt seem 2 work?
any clue how 2 make this thing work?

i doubt that needs to be two commands really, does "/home/shantesh/crclient/crclient -u shantesh" not work?

The rules also state -

Do not post if you do not have anything constructive to say in the post.
What kind of speaker setup do you have? ALSA is a relatively new project and it doesn't produce sound of the same quality as OSS or the Windows sound drivers although the difference is only really noticable if either you're listening hard or have good quality speakers/headphones. So if the sound just isn't as crisp as you're used to then it's something you're going to have to live with unless you fork out the $40 for full version OSS drivers (can get stereo free, for full surround it's not) but if the sounds seems generally stuffed then perhaps it's something you can fix. Which drivers is alsa using?
