grub boot menus keep getting messed up

Not sure why but every few boots my computer won't boot all the way and stays with an underscore cursor in the upper right corner of the screen.

The only way passed this which is easy but shouldn't be necessary is to boot into my Rescutux cd and redo the grub menus, then it boots fine.

Sharing my new script - making symbolic links

Every time I use a script I find online I think, "Well what can I share back?" This one simply prompts the user to put symbolic links into a folder for use as wallpapers, to take advantage of the randomly changing backgrounds option in Desktop Settings. I hope others enjoy it. Not a huge l...

Filesystem Hierarchy - Symlinks or no symlinks

I'm curious because I am watching a Linux+ training video and they are saying that there is really no importance to separating folders such as /sbin from /usr/sbin. I know that the /sbin is "essential" and /usr/sbin "non-essential" so I think my mind is made on keeping them separ...

Re: Making an M-AUdio Quad 4 work

Understood. I had sort of hoped the MidiSport4x4 file might be the same thing you needed. You might post here asking if this device should work. Even if the answer is no, they may know what you do need. i t might be. I have yet to test it again since I ran that compile. Thanks for the link. I poste...

Okay, the lsusb output saw it, but PulseAudio isn't seeing it yet.

Re: Making an M-AUdio Quad 4 work

Thanks for trying. I have it going through my computer and output to my home stereo receiver, so maybe if I make less factors of confusion I can figure something out.

Re: Making an M-AUdio Quad 4 work

so the m-audio device accepts input from just 5-din midi in (and has out of output) and for an ordinary guitar cable. Not getting any sound. I have lmms open and audacity open. I'm not sure what the missing link is that will get me sound. I think it sees the device but the device firmware is not ins...

One thing that works for some is to unplug the device then plug it back in. Try that, then see if pacmd list-cards show two cards instead of one.
I see a MIDI device in jack now, I'll have to see if I get a sound after connecting input to output. Screenshot attached.

I tried downloading this firmware from sourceforge https://sourceforge.net/projects/usb-midi-fw/files/madfu-firmware/ but haven't gotten it to compile yet. If I can get someone's attention on here who's a...

choppy streaming video (I don't think it's my hardware)

Has anyone else experienced very choppy unwatchable streaming video on their lmde installation? I first thought it was the cable company because they changed their available download speeds recently, but they couldn't help me other than to try to sell me a higher speed. First issue I've had., and no...
