I tried updating to 2.4.4 but that's just the same.
I just tried the hw:0 option, but no change at all. However, there's a "work around drain hangup" option in the output plugin preferences, and (whatever it is) it's "on" by default. I just unchecked it, and "the ugly message" dissapeared.


edit:

..and it appears again, with next launch. Guess I'll have to ignore it, or to install Jack.

Thanks for replies guys.

Perhaps the type of card makes a difference. I'll have to try turning that checkbox off too but the ALSA dmix software mixing stuff makes my sound too quiet anyway, so I normally use hw:0 directly for that reason.

I just tried disabling the "drain workaround" and switching back to the 'default' device and I still get the warning, so it does look like it might be card specific.

I agree. But the images at the Store website display "13.3" on the DVD cover. Probably they didn't have enough time do proper "GIMPing" .

Ho ho - I've not seen that before - very humorous. Particularly relevant perhaps is that they state this
Quote:
As well as its' normal uses, Slackware has also been known to power:

the space shuttle
and after Pat's post here it seems that may be actually true! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! (Or maybe that's just the beer ;} ).

Talking 13.37

Slack packin' smackin' crackin' whackin' flyin' along at 40,00' dive bombin' & stompin'....

Wait... something just crashed.

Kernel panic!

Oh, nevermind, that was a debuntu box.

13.37 RC1 is flying along at cruising altitude no probs at 640MPH...

Afterburners kickin' in now...

Slack packin' smackin' crackin' whackin' flyin' along at 40,00' dive bombin' & stompin'....

Wait... something else just crashed.

Kernel panic!

Oh, nevermind, that was another debuntu box.

Slack packin' smackin' crackin' whackin' flyin' along at 40,00' dive bombin' & stompin'....

And if you look out the starboard window, you'll notice all those little fires down below - those are debuntu boxes running Unity...

Hey guys, I'm thinkin' it's time to change my famous quoties line again.

Gotta love Banyan and James Allchin, at the very least coz he's a heavy metal hero (blues man, actually). Congrats on the success of his latest album too (Not like that Volkerding guy - I hear he's a deadhead).

Anyway, below is a couple of possibilities I'm thinking about recycling. Lemme know what you think.

And oh, I haven't had any of those ALSA/Audacious issues yet w/13.37 RC1, or any other issues. I'm slackin' along just fine so far, thinkin' about going for the plunge on my laptop in a couple of days if I can't make it do a debuntu.

Anyway, here's the two quoties I'm thinking about replacing my existing quote line with. Lemme know which one you think is more offensive to mACROsFOT k?

"IBM wanted CP/M prompts. I threw up." - Tim Paterson

"Ask Bill why the string in [MS-DOS] function 9 is terminated by a dollar sign. Ask him, because he can't answer. Only I know that." - Dr. Gary Kildall

Oh, and uh, Patrick, Robby, Eric, and everyone else here who does what we can to support the bestest GNU/Linux distro evers...

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

There. Now I can haz cheezeburgerz

Wow - I've never heard that particular quote before - although I know a lot of the beginnings of Microsoft and can actually remember working on a Victor Sirius machine running CP/M - we then went on to upgrade to Msdos 1.1. - now that's going back! Thanks for posting that as Googling the quote has led me to some interesting sides to the story I have not heard of before. Interesting stuff.

I did a local build of 2.4.4 here yesterday using Pat's existing slackbuilds and the warning remained. wonder if he's changed some build opts (./configure --disable-annoying-warning or some such! )

I'll take a look once the mirror I pull from has synced. Just tried an rsync and it appears to be inconsistent at the moment.
