Intel High Defintion (HDA) … make it loud \m/!

May 18, 2007 – 08:58 by Adnan Hodzic

I used to disturb my neighbors all the time, but then with this new notebook, a lot of things were new (to me) ... from SMP, over to SATA/libata, to 3945ABG and finally to high definition. Which all pretty much if not completely sucked on Linux or just in general. And had it all fixed and working, my sound was working fine, but it was somewhat quiet. For example you wouldn't hear anything if you didn't have speakers plugged into it. I used to ignore, wear audio driver, fix audio driver messages on my hands, but I was too lazy. Until today. Let's do this straight forward, easy and without minor glitch. No matter what Linux distribution you're on, your High Definition (HDA) card is not load at all! Way to fix it? I read ALSA project change log and this is what I've done, and what you should do to make ...

Slackware vs Ubuntu :)

Well it's pretty much all said in here, even tho this could and does go and on and on, for hours. I think I'll have a lot of situations just like this one on DebConf with whole army of Ubuntu users :)

Sony Ericsson P1 is out!

May 15, 2007 – 10:16 by Adnan Hodzic

For awhile now, I've been keeping a close eye on Sony Ericsson ... everything pretty much was the same as W810. Yea there are differences, but here and there ... It was mostly about the phone looks, hardware remained the same. W810i is still a great phone, what bothers me about it, is it's standard "keyboard" that is numbers :) I'm doing a lot of browsing, typing emails, forums bla bla. So it really takes a lot of your time to type small a message. Second is that I can't code :) And as far as I'm concerned coding on Symbian is possible. But I say no to Nokia ... it's just not my style :) So really I was waiting for new P series, which I want for a longer period of time. M series caught my attention, but immediately lost it when I saw there's no camera on it. ...

Slackware hibernate

May 11, 2007 – 07:14 by Adnan Hodzic

Offtopic: When it comes to my life, remember my last post about exam? Linux question, the little disagreement we had? I ended up having 59.25%, 0.75% from 60% and yes I have failed the exam, unbelievable. Back to topic: Few days ago I just got this urge to get hibernation working, there's a need to it of course, but it was more to prove myself I could do it from scratch. So I got it working alright, and I'd like to share that cuz there were many "catches" you may want to avoid. I'm sure this lil "WatchOut!" will be helpful to Slackware and Gentoo users, about the rest, I don't know. I did this on Slackware 11, vanilla kernel 2.6.20 on Toshiba Satellite with suspend2. First to note that you really cant have a question, unless you patched your kernel before you install hibernate script. So you'll first download the patch ...

Meeting went well, pretty much as any other meeting. Thanks "gomez" for the pictures. I made a small video, of some of the happenings, gotta be Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian to understand it.
