That is exactly where my mind blows up :
Yes I use xorg and made the move thanks to a huge Synaptics apt-get package nuclear operation.

So I assume that xorg is being used by my system.

Is there any way to check whether it is XFree86 or Xorg that is active ?

After months of patience and many -I should write zillions- attempts, ... believe it or not but now it just WORKS FINE !!! The thing I've identified thanks to this page : http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-8774/README/appendix-c.html I've been scoping this page one word at a time and a...

I also uninstalled mplayer to reinstall it ... gasp gasp, mplayer (or gmplayer) is nowhere to be found in...

Soundserver crashes at boot - no sound playing video files

Hi Folks ! :oops: been "playing" too much with Synaptic and uninstalled probably too many packages than I should have done. As soon as KDE interface is displayed a crash report window appears and informs me that the Soundserver has crashed. :cry: Consequently I still do have sound while playing XMMS...

:roll: garghl, just processed the whole thing. Updated my box with latest kernel, decided finally to go for the big move from "dfsg" packages to the stack of independent xorg files, recompiled the latest nvidia drivers, displaced manually the modules to where they had to go. Glxgears does not launch...

Hmmm, seems fine indeed. But my box is running Debian Sarge and there doesn't seem to be any glx-utils deb file available anywhere. I'm also still under xorg 6.9.0.dfsg.1-6 (yes I'm afraid to move those dfsg packages to the bunch of independant xorg files). Called an exorcist already, had to leave m...

In addition to this I've just given a try to amoeba. This small app is supposed to launch a bunch of eye-catching OpenGL demos. Obviously, to get the expected visual result you will have to ensure that your 3D hardware acceleration is activated. Well, I might sound advising but actually I'm merely l...

Same story on my side. By curiousity I've launched glxgears from the console (I even didn't remember that this small app did exist), and ... no indication of the framerate. Should we call an exorcist ?

Yes, ALSA is installed by now. Let's see what Ice9 can show us up this time.
I'm so tired of his usual ironic remarks. :wink: :wink: :wink:

Ice9, buddy, time to come out with something serious this time. :twisted:

nope, I don't have aumix-minimal

I only do have 'aumix' which opens an ugly text-like app to adjust some volume levels.

Hi Void Main !

Yes it's about my Debian Sarge Kernel 2.6.9 as far as I remember.

Since I'm using aumix I'm still searching for a step by step procedure to solve this.

Cheers !

... well yes, and I agree it can seem confusing.

The question part would be :

I still wonder how to do this (mainly this : set your levels with aumix, then add both the alsasound and aumix rc scripts (usually found in /etc/init.d/) to your default runlevel).
