This is embarrassing but, when I type this club's name in the terminal it doesn't change 'uname' to Linux. confused.gif

grave accents not single quotes ( or whatever you wish to call them ) tongue.gif

They're on the same key as the Tilde ( ~ ` )

Code:
echo `uname`
-not-
echo 'uname'

I use a Nordic keyboard. I also tried $uname but that just shows "The Club"
I found the grave accent on my keyboard, and that worked.

Possibly not, I can't speak for all European countries, but in the UK the tilde is above the hash (which is where the bottom of the stickyouty bit of your return key). Though the backtick is still in the same place i think

You missed the braces:
Code:
echo "The $(uname) club"

Hi, Linux users!

I'm thinking about removing PulseAudio, since I don't want software that I don't need on my machine (Yes, I will soon remove my Windows partition). Any guides on how to get a good ALSA config? And anything I need to be worried about before I start? Not much experience with the audio stack. smile.gif

To be honest, my alsa config consists of:
Code:
alsamixer
# set levels to 0db
sudo alsactl store

I've never had to mess about with config files with ALSA
