Good equalizer app/software for Linux?
Just wondering, as I can't seem to find anything....

Is there a app, similar to aumix. but like a good equalizer
maybe even with builtin support for home audio/theater etc?

I would prefer something light and console driven versus a gtk app.

And, I would want something that works on most distro's, if possible?

OMG I get to post again about OSSv4!!! LOL

ossxmix has a built in eq as well, I'd do a screen but I'm lazy this morning. =( And yes I'm being serious about the OSS, it has a lot of new features now and I'm trying to spread the wyrd!

linus72 08-14-2009 08:23 AM

Oh yeah dude
I use ossmix exclusively on tinycore
it's loud!

is ossmix available for debian unstable/testing?

Tinycore, with just OSS, opera,xmms f*%^%& rocks the vol lol

I'll have to reboot to find out if it's avail for deb, sure it is right?

If you follow the build instructions here:

you can create a deb....


mushroomboy 08-14-2009 10:15 AM

Awh beat to it!!! Yeah, basically all you need to do to make a deb is build and compile it, instead of running make install run make deb and your set.

linus72 08-14-2009 10:29 AM

I'll try it:)

I'll be building/installing it while chrooted, is that OK?

linus72 08-14-2009 10:45 AM

Its not working
the instructions are retarded or something...

after doing this


hg clone /usr/src/oss
it seemed to untar itself....


rm -rf ~/oss
mkdir ~/oss
cd ~/oss
this is where I'm at now and stuck here..

the makefile is in /usr/src/
the oss folder is in /usr/src/

and I'm cd'd into ~/oss (wherever that is??)


this gets me
Unknown id /usr/src/oss

so, whats wrong with this picture?

linus72 08-14-2009 10:50 AM

my mistake
shouldve been


that ended with erros

I can't copy/paste from grml(unstable) xterm or I would list here

can I copy/paste from xterm, how?

mrclisdue 08-14-2009 10:58 AM

You could run /usr/src/oss/configure | tee /home/linus/wtf.txt

and paste from the text file....


linus72 08-14-2009 11:07 AM

it keeps saying


Using the Linux specific script
Error: Current directory must be empty
even if I chnge directory whatever

mrclisdue 08-14-2009 11:20 AM

The build directory (~/oss (the "~/" denotes the user's home directory, btw)) must be empty for the configuration to start, so make sure you rm -rf ~/oss before running configure.

Also, make sure the text file you're creating (assuming that you're following the instructions in my previous post), isn't going into the ~/oss dir, as the file is created first, before the configure script runs.


mushroomboy 08-14-2009 12:02 PM

You must run the script from an empty directory.

mkdir /osstmp

cd osstmp


if something fails

rm * -R

run /usr/src/oss*/configure again

linus72 08-14-2009 12:10 PM

still errors


/usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:39:26 error /linux/limits.h no such file, etc
/usr/src/oss/setup/ line 93: ./dirsetup: no such file,etc

Cannot create build tree

cp: cannot stat 'kernel/framework/include/timestamp.h': no such file,etc
now what?

mushroomboy 08-14-2009 12:26 PM

Use a seperate directory, don't use one inside the OSS dir. put oss in /usr/src and make the build dir in /home/username/oss

I don't know if your getting anything similar to that?

linus72 08-14-2009 12:34 PM

I'm ignorant when it comes to all this configuration stuff

it made a folder named oss in /home/grml
inside that is "devices.list" and a folder named "noregparm"
which also has a file named "devices.lsit" in it?

In /usr/src is a folder named oss and a file named Makefile

so, what delete the folder/files in /home/grml or what?

what build directory?
