Wayland seems awesome. Take everything wrong with xorg and pretend that you can rewrite xorg from scratch, with all the knowledge we have in 2014. Fantastic. Why can't we have something similar for sound? I'm sick of trying to install software (a lot of DAWs lately) that has dependencies that will break sound for me in other ways. Example: Why should I install libjack2, killing alsa-equal, so that I can use a DAW but now suddenly my media players don't work (namely ncmpcpp)? It's simple. I want a program that is supposed to make sound come out of speakers (or the headphone jack) do exactly that. I don't want to install different libraries to make some things work and break others. I hate that on my linux box, I can have a browser window open with some stupid flash applet running that hogs my sound card, and then not be able to have sound produced from any other application. This problem does not exist on OSX. It does not exist on dreaded m$ OSes. In fact, in 1994 I built an Amiga with multiple sound cards for both recording music and music playback. It "just works" flawlessly to this day. Why is linux sound so archaic? Can we not find developers ready to tackle one of gnu/linux's biggest current failures insofar as being able to make inroads into desktop computing? Wayland, but for sound. Screw all that old alsa/jack/pulse garbage and rewrite it from scratch to work the way it does everywhere else, but on linux. submitted by cloverskull [link] [1 comment]

I recently converted one of my cryptocoins mining rig into a gaming pc running arch. Because the proprietary drivers for my Radeon R9 280x are garbage ( and the open source one has little support for the latest generation of gpus) my plan is to install windoze in a vm and play games there using vga passthrough. My mobo is a Gigabyte Sniper B5 (it has vt-d) and vga output using the haswell gpu from a celeron g2820 (might be mistaken but is from the haswell family and supports virtualisation according to intel specs). My question is the following : when I switch to the windoze vm do I need to plug the monitor into the R9 280 x or the image will be translated to the intel gpu? submitted by Darth_bunny [link] [comment]

After running Ubuntu for a while, I decided to go to Debian testing (Jessie) following a recommendation from a friend. The problem is now that the sound is not working even though this worked perfectly on both Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.10 When I run lspci | grep -i audio I get 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04) Googling this sound problem is a total mess. I really hope someone can help. submitted by spacemanspiiff [link] [2 comments]

Is there something like the Raspberry Pi in both power consumption and cost that I could use for a torrenting machine. I want something with better performance for also toying around with. Any better all in one boards like that? submitted by janderson91z [link] [3 comments]

I know that you can do it with iptables and a text. Is that what people generally tend to use, or is there a GUI application that tends to be more popular? submitted by shogun333 [link] [1 comment]

(If you don't care about backstory there's a TL;DR) Hey everybody. So I'm not new to linux, but this area is not what I'm studying nor have I ever delved into it in my free time. So: graphics card drivers. I have a AMD Radeon HD 6290 HD card on this laptop. If I boot into Win7 I can watch fullscreen Youtube videos at 720p. However, if I boot into Ubuntu (or Fedora, or any other distro I've tried) I can only watch 720p at not fullscreen without it being choppy. I have to assume it's a driver issue. Whatever proprietary driver Win7 uses just gets more out of the hardware than the opensource driver that comes on any distro I've tried. And that's why I'm not using any linux distro at the moment. I'd honestly love to check out Fedora or Elementary OS, but I also love my Youtube. A trivial thing? Maybe. But it's pretty important to me, Youtube and other internet things is the sole purpose of this laptop. I imagine that at least some other people have had this problem, so I'm hoping that somebody can tell me if there's a solution. TL;DR Can you install proprietary drivers for an AMD Radeon HD 6290 HD on any linux distros? The open source drivers that come with any distro I've tried aren't good enough. Or maybe there's an update for the open source drivers that can push my GPU harder? submitted by Pandemic21 [link] [7 comments]
