Debian Multimedia :: Beep With Squeeze / Disabl?e It
Feb 20, 2010
I blacklisted the pcspkr module on my system(rebooted and confirmed it no longer loads). The majority of annoying beeps are now gone. I have 2 instances where it still beeps though. Whenever GNOME first starts(before I login though) and if i am in GNOME at a terminal and type reboot. Any thoughts on disabling this?
When I had Lenny installed I made this computer be my alarm clock (with sanduhr) to wake me up for school in addition to my mom's TV (because I am a heavy sleeper) and now I cannot use this computer to do so. I'm not saying it's a bug. I'm just asking, how do I enable it again? I know that with Lenny to enable/disable beeping, I went to System=>Preferences=>Sound but now I don't see how to make beeping work again.
I'm using Debian Squeeze on my Presario CQ40-115AU. Whenever Squeeze finished boot (when the login screen appears), there a loud beep sound come out. The same sound also come out when rebooting/shutting down my laptop and this had never happened when I'm using Lenny. Where can I configure so the sound won't come out ever again.
I have a problem which is a great inconvenience to me. I want to say that I've been searching for the answer for a week and couldn't find anything but problems similar to mine which were unresolved.I used to have debian lenny, but one day i decided to reinstall my operating system and upgraded to sid, so I have a fresh install of debian sid with gnome. The system beep no longer works on gnome.
What I mean, when i move to terminal(like ctrl+alt+f1) it works great, it also works when i type 'beep' in gnome-terminal. but it doesnt make a sound when i e.g. press ctrl+G, when i am being called on irssi, when i press backspace in gnome-terminal. These things used to work in Lenny, and I really need them (especially this hiliting in irssi). I would go back to Lenny if i didnt need some software that is not present for that version of debian. The pcspkr module is loaded
Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze
su apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring apt-get build-dep dwm exit
It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
I want to install VGA driver on debian squeeze. my VGA is "Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller".I do not know which driver I must install for this VGA.Does Linux recognize related driver ?
I've just installed Squeeze 6.01a from the xfce iso image on an old PIII which has been running Lenny with xfce without any problems. It's a fresh install after a reformat.
Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -
Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.
I have successful installed debian squeeze 32bit on my pc. I like very much The vlc i have installed via software but After install vlc don't start don't appear don't do nothing any one know there is a problem with Vlc On squeeze?
Recently I installed Debian Squeeze - 2.6.32-5-686 but I found problem with my TV OUT again. Before I had the same problem but I found decision here with this patch and everything was OK. Now I have the same problem with new NVIDIA driver (275.09.07) and Debian Squeeze. I tried older drivers but nothing. My video card i NVIDIA - 9500GT.
After unsuccessfully trying to install some updates on my debian squeeze system, I can no longer login to gnome when I restart the system. I've tried logging in both as root and as user and have typed in 'startx' or 'gnome-session' at the prompt but I get an error message "**(gnome-session:12020): WARNING **: Cannot open display:". I've searched the web for solutions but nothing works. I've had my debian squeeze for over three years now with no issues.
On a fresh install of squeeze, I can't log in to an AIM account with being immediately disconnected and given this error: You have been connecting and disconnecting too frequently. Wait ten minutes and try again. If you continue to try, you will need to wait even longer.
I waited for several hours before trying to reconnect, but got the same message. Searching for the error led me to some bug reports from upwards of three years ago.
Strangely, this error hasn't occurred on any of my other squeeze systems.
I can ping login.oscar.aol.com as well as login.messaging.aol.com; both resolve to 22.214.171.124 for me. I tried changing the "Server" under "Advanced" to this address, but again I got the same error.
I think i came across a bug in X server in squeeze. I would report it to the bug tracking system in debian packages but the think is I am not entierly sure about it.When i start X (whether it is through startx or service gdm start or auto startup through init when the pc boots) the computer PC seems to lock up.The screen goes black right after X initializes and before anything is show in the screen and if i wait a about 10 minutes the monitor either goes in standby or out of range. PC seems unresponsive to both keyboard commands and mouse but my LCD screen in my G15shows the time skips 1 sec every 2 sec (from 19:22:22 goes straight to 19:22:24).
I have a custom 2.6.33 kernel which i build but it happens with both 2.6.32-trunk and 2.6.32-3 offical kernels from the squeeze repository so i dont think that this is the problem.My PC is a P4 3.75Ghz with 2Gb RAM and an NVidia 6800GT with the binary drivers from nvidia. I have tried diffrent versions from my grapgics drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.25-pkg1.run & NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.15-pkg1.run) with no change in the behaviouThis is the syslog from the time my pc started and then "stuck". I left it for some time before i hard reset it
I recently did a fresh Debian Squeeze install.The problem I have is that I cannot play any video. I tried opening mpg, flv and mov files with totem and vlc and they crash instantly.I think I have installed the packages (codecs, players, etc) required for playing videos.
I have just installed Squeeze and my xfce works, but I don't get a panel, unless I start it manually withxfce4-panel &As this worked,ded it to the automatically started applications. I logged-out and then back in but no panel. I did a ps -ef | grep -i paneland the panel doesn't appear to be running.
been using squeeze on my primary system for some time, I decided to install it on my media center PC.After doing a clean install I lost sound and my maximum video resolution dropped to 1280x1024 (another post). This system has the same MB as my primary system, i.e. same sound chip. I have no issues with sound on that box. So it's a mystery to me why I don't have any sound on this one. As you can see, the sound modules are loading correctly:
For many years I used KDE and loved it. After Ubuntu appeared and got popular I decided to give Gnome a try as I figured that it must be OK if they used it in Ubuntu (and selected as the default desktop in Debian). I missed out on all the wailing and gnashing that accompanied the release of early versions of KDE 4. I've been using Gnome ever since and I have a really nice setup on squeeze - Chrome for browsing, Geany for development, Gnote for notes, Evolution for offline Gmail and Google calendars.
In fact, it's probably because Gnome is working so well for me right now that the geek in me fancies having a bit of a tinker with KDE. I keep reading that version 4 has now matured enough for production use. The only thing that puts me off is the sheer number of packages I need to install. I'm going to end up with a right mess in my menus etc, but still it might be worth it. What do you reckon - should I just stick with my nice Gnome desktop or should I dip my toe back into KDE? (or go for l33t status and install Xfce) I've got a thinkpad T400 with integrated intel graphics.
since I'm new to the the forum and this is my first post I'd like to discuss a quite weird issue. Specifically, after upgrading my Debian system to Squeeze a few days ago, sound is completely lost. This means that I cannot hear any sound from anywhere (mp3, streming videos or anything else) except the system bell . I've done a research on the Internet, looking in other forums and discussions but still, nothing works for me. To begin with, I'm running Squeeze in an HP laptop with HDA Intel soundcard and chipset ALC268. When I'm running aplay -l I get this message:
Darkstar:~# aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]
After upgrading to squeeze I have now X Server 1.7.7 installed and it won't start. When I try to run startx script, monitor gets blank for few seconds and then I get back to command prompt and no errors is displayed.
When I try the same as root, system locks up with blank screen and no functioning keyboard.
Initially I had kernel 2.6.28 which worked fine with earlier Lenny's X Server and Matrox P650 AGP video card. After upgrade I found, that Matrox P650 is not longer supported in new xorg and I swapped it to Matrox G550 AGP card.
Tried mga driver's many options, upgraded to kernel 126.96.36.199, tried with Matrox G200 PCI and Savage 4 Pro AGP card but without a success.
With kernel AGP support turned on I got both with Matrox G550 and Savage card an MTRR error: "error setting MTRR, Invalid argument (22)". Without AGP support in kernel, Matrox G550 gets initialised as PCI card and no errors and X still not working. Same with Matrox G200 PCI card.
With vesa driver the behavior is also the same and output at the end of Xorg.log file is almost the same.
So I understand, that this is some X server problem?
Nothing special in xorg.conf file and tried without it also.
End of the Xorg.0.log file:
>> (II) MGA(0): YDstOrg is set to 0 (II) Loading sub module "fb" (II) LoadModule: "fb" (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libfb.so
I installed Debian Squeeze from Debian 6.01 CD 1 on my old Pentium 4 Desktop. Now when I log off, the screen gets black and login window is not appearing. I have tried all old post of linux questions forum and also of ubuntu
