Re: [linrad] Linrad with SuSe 7.3

Hallo Ernst,
I have no problems in compiling any linrad version on SuSE 7.3. You do not
say which is the error reported.
Setting up the sound is trickier ( at least on my Thinkpad 600e which has a
strange sound card). SuSE has in fact the alsa driver as a basis. Older
Linrad versions ( like #35) had problems with alsa but I have no probe]lems
with #44 and higher.
Problem with linrad is that for each mixer setting one has to restart linrad
as it does with me not survive console switching.
I start always checking if the mixer etc run well by testing with the
krecord programme which has a nice record input strength indicator. Once
that runs well linrad should accept the ad convertor setting procedure.
Sometimes it can be useful to delete the /dev/dsp* "files" and then run in
the /dev directory the script ./MAKEDEV audio. This has sometimes solved my
problems by reinstalling the /dev/dsp* devs. That script might not be in
your installation. I found it at the suse ftp site as makedev.rpm.
