Re: Deadbeef Segfault

I think I figured it out. I deleted the "Deadbeef" folder in the .config folder and got deadbeef to start. Thanks

Re: Deadbeef Segfault

I think I moved that folder. Would that cause deadbeef to not start?

Deadbeef Segfault

Deadbeef is exiting without the gui starting. :frown: Here's the terminal output. This is s a new issue - deadbeef has been working fine 'til now. $ deadbeef starting deadbeef 1.8.0 server_start searching for GUI plugins in /home/whell/.local/lib64/deadbeef searching for GUI plugins in /home/whell/....

Re: Can we get a "NEWBIE" section

If it is any consolation... I have been here since 2006 and words like "kernel" scare me ;) I'm sorta with you on this one. I just want to drive the car. Having to open the hood periodically - for someone at my skill level with neither the time nor inclination to become even a novice mechanic - mak...

Re: MX audiophile tips and tricks

I am using vlc for audio.Seems to have a lot of options that can be configured- alsa /pulse etc. Any thoughts? It's a fine option for audio playback. In the audio setup options for VLC, you can opt to bypass Pulseaudio and pipe the audio output directly to your sound card / audio device. This isn't...

Re: MX audiophile tips and tricks

Just thought to chime in and say that I use Audacious as my general-purpose, default audio player ... I like the fact that you can set it up to play midi files by accessing high-quality soundfonts if you have them. I'm a professional musician (going on 45 years now!) and my go-to audio player for g...

Re: MX audiophile tips and tricks

I’m not sure that the comments about Pulseaudio not resampling are correct. Again, it’s been a while but... I own an external DAC that displays the output bit rate. When using Pulse, my 96khz files played back at 48 kHz. I wonder if the individual who claimed it was a “complete myth” experimented wi...

Re: MX audiophile tips and tricks

I’ve got MX Linux 18 running music player daemon (mpd). I’ve configured it to bypass Pulseaudio, and I’ve found the difference bypassing versus not bypassing is significant. For better or worse, the better your audio hardware and source music files, the more you’re able to hear Pulseaudio's negative...

Re: liquorix kernel won't boot.

It does when I I install the new Liquorix kernel debs with apt after building them. It helps if you watch the terminal output of the install process. When I was running the 4.19 kernel and installed 4.20, it built for both the 4.19 running kernel and the new one I was installing. Thanks, Stevo. I h...

Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

I guess one could choose to move on, but after all these years with Mepis and then MX, I’ve found more reasons NOT to move on.
