Kill PulseAudio, please!

PulseAudio is so damn annoying. I am trying to install Ubuntu 8.10 on a friend’s computer. All went well with the installation, but it didn’t recognize the sound card. So i went with the usual – terminal -> alsaconf -> configure sound card …. but wait… what the?

“alsaconf: command not found”

After this I just look stupid and try not to destroy my monitor. apt-get install alsa-utils, done, alsaconf… not found… what the!? 

After reading through the forums it seems that they have thrown out alsaconf because it broke some dependencies with the packaging system. 

So I was went to uninstalling pulseaudio. removed all packages using aptitude to resolve the deps. reboot -> still no sound. 

I downloaded alsa-utils from http://www.alsa-project.org and tried to compile it, but some tools were missing and i had to travel to Sofia, so I left it as it was. 

I returned a few days ago, but just today i could work on the problem again. I download alsa-driver, alsa-lib, alsa-util and installed from source. Still i couldn’t load the drivers.  They get loaded as it can be seen from modprobe output, but it’s like it doesn’t know which sound card it is using. The driver is loaded, but still no sound devices detected. I finally gave up and downloaded opensuse 11.0, which i am currently installing and i hope it will just work. 

That’s why i sometimes hate linux… but what can i do, i still like it 🙂

I will write soon with the results from this exercise.

Hosting troubles

I wish hosting providers sold services, which were offered in the adverts. The host I currently use, say they provide fast and good service, but today I was left in a WTF?! condition after a 10 minute wait to open the blog. I used to surf with such a speed in the dial-up age, almost 6-7 years ago. Could a hosting provider use a dial-up connection for the servers ?

Wow, even now, while writing this post I stumble upon some serious errors, caused by the slowness of the service. I wonder how long will this last and when will I move to another hosting provider…

Apart of the hosting problems, lately I’ve been very busy coding my latest projects, which for now will remain secret 😉 . One of them is almost ready, but still testing for bugs. The other should be ready in a few days and then a week or two more to test it and it will open for the public. I will write, once it is up and running.

I can’t think of anything else to tell you for now. “Me, Over!”
