gaim is the program I am worried about. The sound options are:
Console Beep
Automatic
ESD
Arts
Command

Currently, it is set on automatic. Since I am having this problem, I doubt automatic refers to ALSA. Well, if I figure anything out, I'll let you know.

I personally like the 13th step - combination of 1 and 12. "I have a problem and I would like to share my life with you."

In theory, all of them could use OSS or esound, right? As long as all of them are the same sound controller? Gaim is pretty much the only noisemaker I have, and I don't think it has alsa support. Out of curiosity, what is the pecking order? If I had an alsa device, an esd device, and an oss device a...

Serial sound?

A friend and I both separately noticed a strange problem in FC2. Me with xmms, and he with rhythmbox. They play mp3s and such just fine, but when you stop them, all the sounds you missed are played back to you in one orderly but meaningless burst. If you are running a chat program that notifies via ...

Well, okay, I figured out how to do it myself. Mozilla doesn't make it easy to find this sort of information, but it is out there. I've never had to use cvs before, but it seems like a pretty neat tool. I don't know why Mozilla insists on everything being checked out, but anyway. For those of you wh...

All my latest fun has been occuring from the command line, so I honestly cannot tell the difference between Linux and OSX at this level. Libraries have a different extension, but that's about it. Once you pop the terminal open, installing software from source is pretty much the same on ppc as it is ...

Sorry, that's just my underhanded way of saying that I am trying to get these things installed on my Mac. I have Mozilla running, but it's the standard binary OSX version. I need to use nss and nspr for development purposes, and they are not available to me in the binary package. Since I am working ...

mozilla-nss

I am trying to get mozilla-nss and mozilla-nspr running on my not-entirely-open computer. Normally, these are included with mozilla, right? Well, on my system architecture, those libraries are not available for sharing. I would hate to have to build mozilla from source. I downloaded the packages fro...

Here is the listing for all 3 discs of Suse 8.2 Personal. If you can't find an ftp version of 8.2 personal, this won't help you much. But I'm nice, so I did it anyway. It's kinda long, so I uploaded it: http://www.triple-bypass.net/download/index1.txt Looks like there is a lot of garbage on the firs...

I did not mean to suggest any sort of piracy or illegal activity. I happen to own one license to Suse 8.2 Personal, and I would be willing to sell this license to AB for $0. This is perfectly legal, like a garage sale. If the linuxmafia information was correct, I say go with the ftp version. The pro...

PostScript

I am trying my damnedest to learn PostScript, and I think I have some of the basic graphic operators nailed down. I'm starting to get a pretty good understanding of the stack, too. The red, blue, green, and ?grey? (Adobe type library) books have been excellent for this. Unfortunately, I cannot figur...

If you get really desperate, I can mail you the Suse 8.2 Personal boxed set, complete with stickers to go on your computer case. That's damn close to open software, ain't it? :wink:

Someday, I hope there is some giant Linux library, that tells you everything about everything. Kinda like www.tldp.org, but with ten million terrabytes of info, just waiting to be perused. Kind of a big project, though, finding a maintainer might be tricky. :wink:

Hopefully, that means that gaim calls it only because it was compiled in and/or for Linux. Hopefully, compiling it on PPC Darwin will not create any serious difficulties. Nothing was mentioned in my previous compiles - it had so many dependencies to complain about, it didn't bother, I guess. Either ...

Okay, one of the libraries gaim is currently using on FC2 is supposedly called linux-gate.so.1, and I cannot seem to find this anywhere on my system. Googling for information about this library turned up very, very little. Anybody familiar with this library, what it does, and where it can be found? ...
