Re: [linrad] Live-CD for linrad

What type of KB are you using?  I only use a PS2 KB, so a AT or USB
keyboard may not work the same.

Does pressing F2 on the setup screen show you the detials of the setup?
(I'm trying to figure out when it stops working)

I am only running linrad on of the consoles, if you try to change to
another console does that work?  Alt-F2 or Alt-F3  (Press and hold Alt,
then press F2)

You can also start the CD in single user mode, and not have linrad start.
On the initial boot screen (where it says press F2 for more options) try:
morphix single
This should give you a bash prompt.

You can try out the keyboard now, if it works you should try linrad from
here.  You need to run three commands to start linrad.

The first copies some files, and sets the mixer to default to line-in.
The second lets you change the mixer settings.
The third starts linrad.

If single user mode does not work then we need to look more at your
hardware.  The morphix or knoppix[2] site may have some ideas.  Since my
image is just a slight change to MorphixBase-0.4-1.iso you may want to try
that image as well:

Please send me your hardware configuration, that may also give us some
ideas to look at.

Thanks for trying it out.  Hopefully we will get it working shortly.

						Later, JOSH (KD7HGL)
