No...I'm just a boring user. Only visit 3 or 4 sites regularly. Periodically slip into the dark-side and visit one or two more. tongue

I can make a screen shot if you like :-) I guess SF has a new owner that wants to annoy people like me. Who cares.

BTW: Your hint helped. Thanks a lot!

Okay. You are in quite a mood, aren't you? I've never seen a message like you described there, and I'm not even running an adblocker right now.

You guess right :-) Maybe you don't see such pop-ups because you accept every cookie you're offered. I don't like this kind of cookies. This is why I don't surf sites that offer them.

Yep. I used alsactl store after sound worked again.Then  I tried alsactl restore after there was no sound after rebooting.

Maybe you have to disable the undesired card somewhere, years ago we did that via a motherboard dip switch!  Maybe someone else can help with multiple sound cards.

I thought dip switches are history. But I'll check that. Thanks!

It appears you have 2 sound cards?

Yes. Well, the first „sound card“ is the one on my graphics card (Nvidia something). The second is the „real“ sound card.

dxrobertson wrote:

In a terminal, if you run alsamixer, hit F6; does the desired sound card show there?
You can use alsamixer to get the sound settings to your liking, then run alsactl store (as root) and those settings will become the default.

That helped until the next reboot. Now I can use alsamixer and change to whatever sound card I like, there's no sound. 'alsactl restore' doesn't change that.

Well, I recall there was some OS that behaved similarly. The one that made me use Linux. Please don't tell me that everything would work if I switched back to that.

Hi there!

Yesterday I removed pulseaudio from my system. Directly after that everything worked like expected. But today I don't hear anything but silence after turning on my amplifier. Alsamixergui only shows the „sound card“ of my graphics card (Nvidia something).

Has Linux changed to being Windows? Is it necessary to reboot after each fart I let go?

Yep, I'm sort of pissed off. A bit like on the day I heard that Debian switches from Sys-V-init to that piece of shit called  systemd. Since pulseaudio is from the same author I don't want to have this in my system. Well, systemd is the reason for moving to devuan. Do I have to go back to debian?! OMG ...

So, what can I do to hear my music? Rhythmbox seems to have changed a lot since Debian 7. It seems that there is no way to tell it where to output sound.

Thanks in advance!

If it's just the older version of that programme you want, then maybe try adding the Debian wheezy src repository, get the source and just build it for your current release.

Oh. This advice is the least I would have thinked of. I'll try this asap.

Hi there!

When I was younger I believed everything would get better as times goes by.  Especially software. Just like wine.

But today I tried using Hugin to stitch a panorama consisting of some photos I took just two hours ago. And guess what ... the output is that brilliant I would wipe my a. with.

So I want to get my „old“ system back (be able to boot into my old system). Hugin on my old system will feel like stepping back some decades. But it will work in a way I can handle. It always did.

The bad thing is that I cannot boot into that system because the devuan/lilo installation gave me a system that is unable to boot my old configuration. So I'm thinking of using qemu to setup a configuration with the old harddisk partitions. I'm sure Hugin would work (it always did).

But how can I achieve this? Or what can I do to make lilo to be able to boot my old debian system?

I'm some sort of helpless 'though I'm pretty used to solve problems.

So here's some information I consider helpful:

Harddisk partitions I use (Partitions marked with * are the ones I use for Devuan, some of them also used with old system):

   Part. size      used for
   ----- --------- ---------------
 * sda1   10,00 GB Devuan /
 * sda2   11,17 GB swap
 * sda3    9,78 GB /usr/local
   sda4            extended
 * sda5   15,29 GB /home/gszaktilla/dokumente
 * sda6   29,49 GB Devuan /usr
 * sda7  322,09 GB /home/gszaktilla/dokumente/datensammlung
 * sda8  514,62 GB /home/gszaktilla/dokumente/qemu
   sda9    9,75 GB Debian /tmp
   sda10   9,32 GB Debian /var

   sdb1   21,24 GB Debian 7.11 /   <------------------ old root partition
   sdb2   13,20 GB Devuan /tmp

sda is a hard disk (one of those with rotating magnet discs), sdb is an SSD.

Hi, Gregor. I don't use rhythmbox but can imagine that it keeps all your personal settings (including song ratings) somewhere in your home folder. Look for a folder such as /home/gregor/.rhythmbox or /home/gregor/.config/rhythmbox.
If you upgrade without wiping your home folder, rhythmbox should behave as before without any intervention from you. Nevertheless, I'd copy the rhythmbox config folder to a flashdrive just in case.

Shame on me. I should have tried this before posting.

Now I have all the "ratings" back. Rebuilding my mostly automated playlists shouldn't be a big job.

Thanks a lot!

Hi there!

Because Debian 7 is „out of LTS“ I am moving from Debian 7 to Devuan 2.

Now I would like my „new“ rhythmbox to behave like my old did. I don't want to rate every song again.

Is it possible to „convert“ the respective files? Hm, *are* there any files I could use to prevent me from doiing all the things I did in my old rhythmbox?

Thanks in advance!

Gregor
