Hello interested people,

Thanks for coming to read my blog, I hope you get some helpfull info here, or that you just leave a message if you feel like doing so.

You can read more about me personally on <a href=""></a> or download some mp3 songs or .wav drumloops ...

Yesterday I installed Ubuntu again after a failed attempt to install 64studio (the 32bit version) and a failed attempt to install Fedora Core 5, there seems to be a problem with the first cd I burnt.

I also just finished reading chapter1 of the great <strong>Introduction to Linux</strong> book. If Ubuntu is not too easy to install, then I also passed my first exercise :-)
(Waw, I can click yes and ok)

My pc is a Dell Optiplex GX110, PentiumIII Coppermine 866Mhz, 320MB SDRAM PC133,
80GB ATA HDD, s3virge graphics 64MB, M-Audio Delta 1010 soundcard, M-Audio Midisport 2x2 usb midiport.
Currently I don't know how to install and configure the 2 M-Audio's but when I do lspci I get my Delta listed, lsusb also recognises the midisport.

    Installing M-Audio Midisport 2x2 : just follow <a href="">this How-to</a>
    (In short) :

    sudo -i
    cd /tmp

    # then get firmware from the 'usbmidi' package

    # unpack
    tar xvzf usbmidi-20040829.tar.gz

    # to simplify the instructions copy the firmware to /etc/firmware
    mkdir /etc/firmware
    cp usbmidi-20040829/testing/MidiSport/ezusbmidi1x1.ihx /etc/firmware/

    # install fxload if not yet installed
    apt-get install fxload

    # find out what bus and device id the midisport has

    # load the firmware (change "003" with your bus number and "004" with your device number , found from lsusb
    fxload -I /etc/firmware/ezusbmidi1x1.ihx -D /proc/bus/usb/003/004

    On <a href="">the page</a> I also found a script for loading the midisport .

    With "Alacarte menu editor" I added a new menu-item with the command "sudo /usr/local/bin/midisportsetup" set to open up in a terminal.

    I also added one with the command "sudo modprobe snd-seq-midi" that I need to make Alsa find the /dev/snd/seq .

    ... thanks a lot Yaaarrrgg !

    Because I have 3 soundcards (the onboard, the Delta 1010 and the Midisport 2x2) , I needed to configure a default one .
    After installing Ubuntu , it was the onboard soundcard .
    But I found the easy way to change that >>>

    #to see the possible outputs I did
    sudo asoundconf list

    >> I got this :
    Names of available sound cards:

    #then I did
    asoundconf set-default-card M1010

    et voila , the default soundcard is now the one I prefer.
    who said Linux is difficult ?
