Updates seem behind[solved]

In my continuing struggle with sound in Solydx on my wife's computer I noticed that the several VLC package version numbers on our computers did not match. My wife's computer was the most current ISO plus updates(vlc 2.2.4-1~deb8u1) and mine was the previous ISO plus updates(vlc 1.2.1.5~pre3-dmo3). ...

Re: [TUT] tweaking pulseaudio

I was attempting to follow your instructions '[TUT] tweaking pulseaudio' in 'Board index Multilingual Support Tutorials' I ran in console: pacmd info I then scrolled down to 'alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo'. My info had different values than the code block you show, e.g. I had 'state: SU...

Re: segfault in xfce-mixer?[solved]

Since I now know that xfce-mixer is deprecated, I found out how to properly make sound card options: ignore the volume menu option that says "run audio mixer" OR simply uninstall xfce-mixer.

Re: segfault in xfce-mixer?[solved]

How would I do that? Would simply uninstalling xfce4-mixer do that? I don't think I know how to configure pavucontrol.

Re: segfault in xfce-mixer?[solved]

You may or may not believe this: this bug on the XFCE bug list is several years old and apparently unsolved. Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault from /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 However, at the bottom of its page: "Seems that this occurs only if the QtCurve or Redmond theme is used....

grub memory test [Solved]

Grub used to place a memory test at the end of the list of OS choices. How can I get a memory test before boot?

segfault in xfce-mixer?[solved]

Trying to get sound and clicked on a working instance of pulse Audio Mixer. It was apparently a sore spot to xfce-mixer. I don't remember exactly, but it was near the bottom. No matter how invoked: volumeIcon->"Run Audio Mixer": then mixer flashes on and immediately off screen applicationsMenu->Mult...

Re: no sound & PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun

Thank you, Ilo. I've decided that adding/removing/re-adding is not fruitful. I have plenty of disk space, so I installed another instance of Solydx. I was selecting from the pulseaudio mixer->Select Controls, near the bottom and the whole mixer app gui disappeared. Selecting the mixer now from the v...

Re: no sound & PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun

I mean that I am getting frustrated at the complexity of the hybrid monster that linux sound is. In searching Google, I find that sound is ugly everywhere, with pulseaudio most criticized. Of course I am Solydx. The full inxi output was included. I would be happy now if I could just get restored to ...

Re: no sound & PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun

kurotsugi, thank you for your advice. However, I have spent two days solid muting and unmuting. The pulsleaudio mixer does not offer the selection: Playback: Built-in Audio Analog Stereo (PulseAudio mixer) , which I believe is required to get sound from my card. From what I have read pulseaudio requ...

Sorry. I just assumed it had executed without looking. Thanks for the warning re: size of partition. The bulk of my data is on a separate partition, but I have apparently left something on the primary.
