Re: FIND

You can disable cron and anacron using rcconf. Better not... without a good understanding of what they do. A slightly better alternative is to go through all the crontab files (are they still called that?) and take out the things that you don't want to happen. Still, an experienced administrator wo...

Re: FIND

Check who started it with 'ps faux | less'. Perhaps part of the 'updatedb' process for the 'locate' database? raboof's idea will help you home in on it, because you will see the arguments. Again ps is complex because of its power, and supporting two [or more?] sets of args (I prefer the one with th...

Re: clean install of other desktops

Ahh... You are way ahead of me :o.

I've updated my bookmarks and my mind on this. It will be just what I need when the next install time comes around. Thanks.

Re: clean install of other desktops

As it is from quite a while back, probably some of the repository information may have changed, but I would expect that the basic principles and procedures are still the same: KXstudio without branding and KDE I prefer to be KDE-free right from the start. It gets too confusing with its own admin stu...

Re: FIND

'find' is not an application that does something useful in and of itself... Aaargh, yes it is! find is one of the most useful *nix commands and should be one of the first to be learned by anyone who ever opens a terminal window. It can be a little tricky, eg getting the quotes right when using it w...

Re: Some smarter filtering stuff

Maybe this software can help: http://isse.sourceforge.net/ What clever-looking stuff! Sadly, I have fallen flat on my face, not even at the first hurdle, but right at the start :oops: . Whilst even a fool like me can type $ make ...and quite often even find and get the things reported as missing, m...

Re: Abandonware

Mods... Can this thread be given an appropriate name, please?

Whatever the intentions behind the first post, it is now never going to be about abandonware in general; it is about very specific software ...and the JACK latency controversy.

Re: What is Calf Emphasis effect?

... ... ... So does it make sense to apply the CD curve for sampling from a CD? It seems if i'm just ripping from the CD to WAV files no kind of eq should be necessary. Apparently there was something called pre-emphasis that was applied in the production of early CDs. I've never got to grips with w...

Re: What is Calf Emphasis effect?

It's an interesting discovery! Yes, records have to have this EQ applied, and without it, they would not physically play. The bass would have the stylus jumping out of the groove. So much for the new generation who think that vinyl is all pure analogue sound, untouched by human hand! This, apart fro...

Thanks... I thought it would be easy, just displaying information held anyway --- but obviously not.

Re: Cadence: Auto-switch device if last used dev isn't prese

Picking the first available device, if the configured device is not available, would be a good idea.

Another idea is to display the current "master" on the main panel in the JACK Status listing. (Please? :) )

Re: How manage default patchbay with Catia

Sadly, no. ---because, i think, that would have replicated the Claudia/Ladish functionality. I use a utility called aj-snapshot to record and restore a, err, snapshot of the required connections. It is a short step to make a script that starts the required programs and then restores their connection...

Re: [SOLVED] DSP output script

ok, good, glad you got there. : ). stdbuf is entirely new to me. Digging for the brain cells that would be able to fluently read the sed command would be like archaeology. Ashamed to admit that I used to do actually clever stuff with sed, awk, shell, etc for a living, over ten years ago. Actually, s...

Re: DSP output script

I used to do sed and awk and stuff, but it is a long time ago. Looking at your stuff, cut seems the most promising. cut -d " " -f4 really should work. But it doesn't. 1. Let's output jack_cpu_load to a file... $ jack_cpu_load >xxx ^Csignal received, exiting ... 2. Let's see what we have in...
