Debian Configuration :: How To Configure The ALSA

Jun 16, 2010

I am using Debian testing. If I install the gnome-desktop-environment then the sound driver defaults to HDA but since I just installed gnome-core (for a more stripped-down version of gnome) the default is the OSS driver. How do I get ALSA to default to the sound driver HDA?

Debian Configuration :: Is There Preferred / Better Method For Setting Up Alsa?

Apr 30, 2011

Would like to know the best way (or the pros and cons of different ways) to set up Alsa. I did a search for information on how to setup alsa on my system. I found a lot of out-of-date information even on the alsa wiki. What I did finally locate was two different methods for setup, both seemed somewhat up-to-date. One method at the alsa wiki said to put part of the information in the modprobe directory in a conf file and set up certain aliases. Earlier suggestions for putting information in modprobe.conf or conf.modprobe appear to be outdated and a directory with separate files for each device and a conf extension to the files is currently used. The second method from a thread on the Debian forum said to use alsactl init, set sound levels the way you want and then use alsactl save and restore functionality. Older methods using alsaconf instead of alsactl init appear to be outdated as well. Not sure where to put the call to alsactl restore though. Didn't notice that in the documentation.In case it matters, I'm running Debian Stable and have a built-in sound card on the motherboard with AC97 compatibility. It's a Realtek ALC882.

Is there a preferred or better method for setting up alsa? Is there a good pointer to instructions that are not out-of-date somewhere? Would be very interested to hear how others set sound up on their machines. What do others recommend as best steps to do this?

Debian Configuration :: Installing Audio Firmware And ALSA Config

Oct 28, 2015

I know very little about Debian but have an ASUS T100TA tablet which runs fairly well under Debian 8 Jessie (kernel 3.16.0-4-686-pae). I used the following guide successfully to activate the wireless but am having trouble with the audio section of it.URL...

First, I went here and downloaded the file called 'NEW T100_B.state'.URL....

Then I copied it to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state and ran 'alsactl restore' which reported that i had no soundcards.I then downloaded and expanded linux-firmware-master-intel.tar.gz but am not sure what to do with these files. I copied them to /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-686-pae/kernel/drivers/firmware as they are specific for this kernel, but they don't seem to be doing anything and 'alsactl restore' still tells me that I don't have a soundcard. What do I need to do with these files?

Debian Configuration :: Checking For Directory With ALSA Kernel Sources

Jan 22, 2011

I followed this doc for the "debian method" for building the kernel: [URL]. I installed the source in /var/tmp/src/linux-2.6-2.6.32 , configured it, and tried make-kpkg modules-image. The error I get is:

checking for current directory... /usr/src/modules/alsa-driver
checking cross compile...
checking for directory with ALSA kernel sources... ../alsa-kmirror
checking for directory with kernel top-level makefile... /var/tmp/src/linux-2.6-2.6.32

I tried some hacks such as setting KBUILD_SRC or ln -s linux-headers-2.6.32-5-amd64/ /usr/src/linux - but these fail too.

Debian Configuration :: How To Configure Hybrid ISO

Jun 26, 2015

I've got a task: make time server, that gets time from gps, shows it on display and send to different systems through different ports like com, ltp, etc.

Solution is qt program, included in hybrid iso image.

I've created my binary-hybrid.iso debian, added my program and installed it on pc sudo dd if=/media/cdrom/binary-hybrid.iso of=/dev/sda then i restarted and everything is ok, but...

I also need:
1) to make my pc works as ntp-server, to do this i must change file ntp.conf in ntp****.deb before i build my iso
how can i do this?

as i realized according to it's possible to do by putting smth to /live-build/config/packages.chroot and by adding some parameters to lb config but i can't find how and what

2) to save my program parameters after reboot. for example, i have such parameter as gmt. it defined as +3. i can change it while program is running to -5 for example and i want to have gmt -5 when i next time turn on my computer

When in programming it is simple - program creates ini file in it's directory and read/write parameters from this ini-file, but how to make possible to do the same thing when it works from iso?

Debian Configuration :: Configure Multiple NIC's?

Debian Configuration :: Different Nmap Results And Configure A MTA?

Jan 26, 2010

I have been trying to configure an MTA (sendmail) on a new Debian installation to receive system messages and local network mail. I have no need to fetch or relay mail outside my teeny LAN. The logs on the sending machine told me the mails were refused by the receiving (Debian Lenny) system. So I ran some quick nmap scans. From the sending machine, scanning the Debian machine:

22/tcp open ssh
111/tcp open rpcbind

From the Debian machine, running 'nmap localhost':

22/tcp open ssh
25/tcp open smtp
111/tcp open rpcbind
587/tcp open submission

From the Debian machine, running 'nmap debian' (this is a virtual machine named debian) :

22/tcp open ssh
111/tcp open rpcbind

Why the two different results? How do I get the scans to be the same so I can, eventually, configure an MTA?

Debian Configuration :: Configure The Postgresql In Lenny?

Mar 3, 2010

I've been trying to configure Postgresql in Debian for some time now, in order to install a ERP program in my computer, but when trying to follow the tutorial for the program configuration I end up stalled. Basically its says this:

1) under su, start by finding the postgresql.conf file (it points the location of the file in /var/lib/postgres/data, but it isn't there) and find the line saying 'tcpip_socket' and changing it to "true"

After a little search and help, I found this file in /etc/postgresql/<version>/main/ but the mentioned line is absent, locate it or tell me where to add it in the file? I've read the file front to back and I'm pretty sure the line isn't there.This is, according to the tutorial, to enable the server to connect to a Java program through the JDBC.

2) after editing postgresql.conf, edit pg_hba.conf and add the following line to the end of the file: host all all trust

I get stuck after this, because I'm now supposed to restart the server by using '/etc/init.d/postgresql restart', but bash replies that the path is invalid. The program I'm trying to install is hosted here: [URL]. It's a portuguese ERP program.

Debian Configuration :: Unable To Configure Supported HP Printer?

I have just set up the above OS, however, installation did not find my network and therefore APT additional software & security updates could not be accessed.The network was simple to setup post installation.I have uncommented a few sources in the sources list file but obviously that does not,in itself, suffice to get accessability. I am also unable to configure my supported HP printer and I assume that can only be done with an additional package via APT.

General :: Audio Output - How To Configure MPD For ALSA

Jan 30, 2010

I just got rid of pulseaudio because it breaks in so many different situations. I've switched to Alsa, and all of my sound is working except in mpd. It seems like I have to set audio_output in /etc/mpd.conf. Here is my config file:

audio_output {
type "alsa"
driver "pcm"
name "whatever"

When I start mpd, this is what happens:
$ sudo mpd --no-daemon --stdout --verbose
playlist: play 1:"Party Playlist/01 Block Rockin' Beats.mp3"
decoder: audio_format=44100:24:2, seekable=true
alsa: default period_time = buffer_time/4 = 371519/4 = 92879
alsa: buffer_size=16384 period_size=4096
output: opened plugin=alsa name="My MPD Alsa Output" audio_format=44100:24:2
playlist: queue song 2:"Party Playlist/01 Umbrella [Feat. Jay-Z].mp3"
output: closed plugin=alsa name="My MPD Alsa Output"
^Clisten: listen_global_finish called
db_finish took 0.000000 seconds

And I hear the song play for less than a second before the audio_output driver is closed. There really aren't any error messages printed explaining why it's not working. I've also tried "oss", "esd" and "ao" for the audio_output type, and none of them work.
