a new ubuntu release (more about this in another post soon), and yet again:
sudo apt-get purge libmono0 mono-common
54mb saved, very, very good, but the most important thing is the peace of mind… and who wants tomboy or fspot anyway?
seems like the pirate bay have been convicted for “making illegal things searchable”. but, try this search term in google:
"fallout 3" filetype:torrent
over 800 hits, click and download. who needs the pirate bay? why not sue google too?!! i can find illegal stuff there!! i didn’t bother trying live or yahoo (since they’re both crap), but i guess its the same… why not sue all search engines… sue everything!! everybody! everywhere!!
installed (or rater, upgraded to) ubuntu 9.04 beta yesterday… most things looks and feels very good, except for a few things. especially the crappy pulse audio. i had a completely fine audio setup, two soundcards, one integrated, on the motherboard, for gnome/desktop stuff, and a m-audio audiophile 2496 dedicated to jack and music work. but pulse audio messes up everything, deciding to use the m-audio for the desktop, hiding the on-board card, not letting me manually choose which card i want to use, and the mixer icon/appled has disappeared from the gnome panel, so i can’t even change the audio volume…
crap.. hopefully removing the premature, unfinished pulse audio crap won’t ruin something else…
but then again, i know this is a beta, and i should expect some glitches like this one, so, maybe (just maybe), i should try to get pulseaudio to work as intended first… we’ll see
it was quite simple to fix:
sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio sudo apt-get install esound
ignored the warning about removing ubuntu-desktop. it’s just a meta-package, and doesn’t remove anything..
phew! back to good, old, working alsa.
