Finding where the answer is


If I ask a question and somebody has an answer, where and/or how do I read the response? Of course that includes this question. If I can find the answer to this question then I will know how to find the answer to any other questions.

Depending on your options (see Profile/Options on the right), you'll probably get an email.
Or check your posts, or open MyLQ above in a new tab.

Of course, if you don't get to read this, you'll never know ....

(Welcome, BTW)

Go to Settings and Option > Default Thread Subscription Mode and set your preference for e-mail notification. I believe the default is Instant Notification.

Of course, if you get an e-mil from this reply, it's already set.

Firstly do you know what to ask?

look at wikis and your distro's docs and that might resolve your question.

look at "sticky posts" at the top of newbie or networking or security or your distro sub-forum

if no clue....then google your question along the lines of

"linux sound solved my-card-name (or my-sound-module or my sound-device-id etc)"

----there are also ways to ask questions to maximise the chance you can get an answer.

normally this involves being polite....so say please and ....I can post other log information...and thank each replier ....even if you think they are like me....and are idiots

good luck
