slightly ot... but relevant as i'm finding a lot of the newer releases
im running mandrake 9.0... which comes with glibc 2.2.5
i know i've killed several installs trying to upgrade glibc by hand... i
really dont want to kill off this one just as i've got cvs alsa working...
does anyone know the list of applications that depend on glibc, so i can
get upgrades for them all?
my modem isnt working at the moment under GNU/Linux so i need to grab
them while i'm in the Evil OS.... and i cant use urpmi :(.....

Oops. Sorry 'bout that. I tend to jump around reading from different
lists and forget which one I'm on. My apologies.
Recently I picked up Peter Gabriel's _Up_ disc. In the fine print on the
outside of the case it says "This is an enhanced CD. Please put it in
Of course, the finer print inside says that by "computer" they mean a PC
or a Mac. My linux box won't recognize the executable to play the durn
thing: it's encoded so that on a CD-ROM the tracks can't be accessed
1) Is there a linux utility that can deal with such?
2) (Somewhat off-topic for this list) I'm presuming the answer to 1) is
"no." If this is the case: When I boot up the Windows side of my
(dual-boot) system, and put in the disc, the executable brings up a menu
one option of which is "play." If I click on this it starts the generic
Windows CD player, which is of course useless for, well, turning the songs
into ogg files.
How would I set up a symbolic link in Windows, so that a call for
the generic CD player brings up, say, musicmatch? I can usually deal with
these things in linux but I'm not very confident messing things around in
I know Micro$oft products aren't the usual topic of discussion on this
list; I promise not to make a habit of these sorts of questions.
I actually have a Sony PCM. If you'd like to send me a copy of the tape I'll be glad to dump it for you.

Subject: [linux-audio-user] Sony PCM-F1 to digital
?? Is there any way to go from a video tape in the Sony PCM-F1 format
to digital other than playing it on a Sony PCM 601??
I'm configuring a system for a friend whose musical needs are quite
simple, but in the course of things he asked me which motherboards are
preferred by Linux audio people. I confess I'm not very savvy about the
subject, but I figured some of you folks would lend your opinions
regarding suitable boards for either amateur or professional use. Of
course I'd also like to know if there are particular boards I should
avoid. TIA !

I'd also be interested in knowing the figures. Are you using all four channels
of audio in and out simultaneously, m?
Hi, I am looking to install alsa on a laptop along with something
for more reasonable sound such as a Roland ua-20.
I was wondering if anyone had successfully done something similar
or knew of any information resources?
So far I have heard that alsa does not work, only oss, and that
the latency that can be expected with such a set up is worth neglect.
However, these were all claims from a year or two ago, since then
I have seen a message wherein a claim to having repaired some known
quirks in Roland ua-20 with alsa were established.
ANy light shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
