#1 Desktop and Multimedia » Dolphin-emu missing in Chimaera, available in Beowulf and Ceres » 2022-09-21 21:58:39

I was going to download the Dolphin Emulator today but it seems to be missing in Chimaera's and even the backports repository. I decided to look it up, and discovered that it's available in OldOldStable (Ascii), Beowulf, and Ceres:

It seems to be the same in Debian itself. Why is that? Some kind of news I'm missing? I can build it from source but it would be less of a hassle to see it in the stable repositories like it is in both OldStable and Unstable. Its been the same version for years.

My experience has been very similar, sadly. Before I had a computer my entertainment system had an outboard mixer... Plug anything in and go.

I just gave it another go and discovered if I didn't change any defaults in /etc/asound.conf and instead changed the order for snd-hda-intel chips in /etc/modprobe.d then everything just seems to work. I have both pulseaudio and pipewire blacklisted. Maybe adding more to the configuration is what ruined it for me, but dmix seems to be turned on by default.

I've been stuck to using FreeBSD which uses OSS for a while because of the cancer that is pulse/pipewire and ALSA, the purist alternative, didn't seem to "just work". OSS is much like that, plug and go. It can even handle software mixing well. Thankfully this worked, because otherwise I would have to deal with a constant popping noise regardless of the distro and regardless of what changes I made to pulseaudio or pipewire. I tried using Debian itself without systemd and well... Now I see why Devuan is so important.

That's a bit off-topic. Nice mixer I should say altor. smile

I'd also like to go ALSA-only, but ALSA configuration is quite confusing.

I think the best I could do is get applications like Firefox to have working sound, but Steam and others did not (even with apulse).

I really like the latter. Thanks for all the work you do!

He's talking about the TTY not a terminal emulator. I also have this issue regardless of the Linux distro, even shift + pageup/pagedown does not work. Interestingly, FreeBSD's tty scroll works just fine.

#6 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Popping sound solutions » 2022-04-02 15:33:29

So I eventually got ALSA to be audible and am using a pure ALSA system. Popping is still present but less noticeable than before. My knowledge of ALSA (or pipewire/pulseaudio even) is pretty limited so any insight on reducing popping would be appreciated.

Hey everyone,

I've used Devuan for quite some time and I enjoy it a lot. On my most recent installation, I'm having trouble with popping sounds. I typically only get the popping after I install pulseaudio since I cant get audio to work with ALSA and apulse. I've tried everything. I messed with the configuration files in /etc/pulse but I still got popping (and in fact I think I made it worse). Even after removing pulseaudio from my system, I still have popping.

I've tried to set "options snd-hda-intel power_save=0 power_save_controller=N" inside of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf but this also didn't do anything. I would love to try Pipewire to see if it's the solution but it looks like even a year later its completely unmodified from Debian which uses a systemd unit to work. I've used FreeBSD in the past which uses Open Sound System v4 and had no issues at all with these headphones.

I am on Devuan Ceres using Trinity Desktop Environment. If anyone knows more about audio, your help would be appreciated. This popping is very annoying and it occurs on almost every Linux distro I've tried, I've managed to minimize it in the past by fooling with vague configurations that I can't even remember. I thought I did what helped me the last time (flat-volumes=no and sample rate set to 48000 in daemon.conf), but it's still doing it.

EDIT: I apologize for putting this in Devuan. I didn't realize I wasn't in the support section.

I don't trust Brave one bit, not Firefox. I use Pale Moon for now.

#9 Re: Devuan Derivatives » An example of how Trinity Desktop Env (TDE) can look on Devuan ASCII » 2022-01-08 23:01:35

Great to see fellow TDE appreciators here on Devuan. :-)

I took a hiatus from TDE for the past few months using icewm on FreeBSD, but I've returned to Devuan and continue using Trinity. I think the most anticipated feature for me is getting Konqueror from TDE in a secure and usable state. Talk is going on to move it to a TqtWebKit.
