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

I'm unaware of this method.

Everything you'll ever need to know about the basics of using ALSA: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture

When I set mine up, I believe it was just a matter of installing it, unmuting the channels, brief frustration with trying to figure out why it was wanting to use my GTX 580's HDMI as the default output, a cup of coffee, and then fixing that. There wasn't any real tweaking involved in configuring it otherwise.


Guys! Guess what! My three-year-old daughter is officially a Linux user. biggrin.gif I put Debian with LXDE on her little Pentium 3 PC a few months ago, which runs like a champ by the way. She spent the last few months ignoring it because there was just too much frustration involved with her lack of coordination. Well, I sat her in front of Tux Paint a couple of days ago, and now she's totally addicted. She can only mouse right now, but that's a start for sure. Now I just need to teach her to read, then it's on to the terminal!

Don't feel bad; she beat me by about 11 years.

I'm in the process of converting my brother. He won't beat anyone though, he's 19. I started with Linux in 2007, but at least I dove straight into it, didn't cheat with any dualbooting. tongue.gif

I've managed to convert my older sister somewhat, but she won't learn the terminal just because she's lazy rolleyes.gif

What would you guys recommend for a bluetooth client and a rrs reader? blueman and yarssr are using too much memory
post #1629 of 4043
Why do programs like MPlayer, Audacity etc need "libpulse"? I don't even have PulseAudio installed. Shouldn't it be an optional dependency?

It's very very rare when I need to use bluetooth, but IIRC I use bluez

I think that's to do with the way how Linux links libraries. binary repositories need to compile with the PulseAudio APIs just in case the user decides they do want Pulse installed. You could probably compile the source yourself without such dependencies, but since it only uses up about 1MB, I wouldn't worry too much about that extra bloat.
Code:
$ pacman -Qi libpulse
Name           : libpulse
Version        : 4.0-2
Description    : A featureful, general-purpose sound server (client library)

Licences       : GPL  LGPL
Groups         : None
Provides       : None
Depends On     : dbus  libasyncns  libcap  libxtst  libsm  libsndfile  json-c
Optional Deps  : alsa-plugins: ALSA support [installed]
                 avahi: zeroconf support [installed]
Required By    : chromium  espeak  ffmpeg  ffmpeg-compat  fluidsynth  freerdp  julius  lib32-libpulse  libcanberra-pulse  mplayer  phonon  pocketsphinx  qemu  speech-dispatcher  sphinxbase  spice-gtk3
Optional For   : alsa-plugins  firefox  mpg123  sdl  sox  wine
