Hello. I just tried upgrading my sound stuff from 1.x to 2.0
Well. it was a little tricky. I finally was able to do a 'make config'
(I had to compile configure.c by hand, the Makefile wasn't doing it).
Then I compiled my kernel, recompiled all my software, and tried it out.
First thing I notice:
TRACKER WORKS GREAT! before I could only get it to work in mono
mode. I used the modplayer instead. I forgot where I got it...
The WAV-PLAYERS DON'T! I tried to play my favorite wave (Ranma 1/2
Theme song) and there was annoying clicks about every 1/2 second
or so. (appropriate, no?) If I ran a lower sample (instead of
22000, maybe 11000) then the clicking was more like once a second.
when i played a really ratty one at 8000, the clicking seemed
to disapear, but then again, it could have been the file was
that bad. It seems to be a buffer thing, because it doesn't
start right away...
I figure there are two reasons:
one the splay and vplay that come with the snd-utils-2.0 package
aren't recient enough and are not correct.
I have something configured wrong.
I have it at the moment set up as
PAS16 on I10 D3
SB(from the PAS16) on I5
kernel PL13 with ipc all the filesys and slip
I tried last night to recompile it with
PAS16 on I7 D3
SB(from PAS16) on I5 d1
GUS(don't have) on 210 (dont' bug the SB)
but it kept stopping saying the compilation(on any file I started it on)
was interupted by a signal -11 !!!!! I killed everything and tried it
again and still same result! I'm not too worried. like anyone who
loves adding and playing with his Linux system, I have a kernel back up
I haven't had time to reboot (I'm at school) and see if I can re-compile
PS can I use I15 D7 like I do on DOS sometimes or will the programs not
be able to hand this (like in DOS). I'm hoping this is more equipment
indepented than DOS. ;) (of course it is! It's Linux!)
