Linux and audio: HDRs and DAWs

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxHDRs and DAWs For Linux: The New Breed from LJ talks about necessary tools for the digital audio studio: "The hard-disk recorder (HDR) is the central component of the modern digital audio studio. The most basic feature of a high-quality HDR is the capability to record and play multitrack/multichannel digital audio at various sampling rates. However, with the addition of software amenities such as non-linear and non-contiguous editing operations, support for a variety of soundfile formats, and audio digital signal processing via plugins or built-in modules the HDR is no longer simply a more or less sophisticated record/playback device. At this point it has become a digital audio workstation (DAW).". Interesting read, even for a non-musician.

Linux Graphics Drivers from Intel

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxThe web site Linux Graphics Drivers from Intel opens with this paragraph: "The Intel Open Source Technology Center graphics team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of free software drivers for the Intel® 965 Express Chipset family graphics controller. These drivers include support for 2D and 3D graphics features for the newest generation Intel graphics architecture." Check out the hardware matrixto see what hardware is supported. Also, be aware that there are parts of the drivers that are not open source, according to this OSNews comment. It is claimed that this part (of the driver) is optional, so it is not clear at this time what functionality you will miss without it.

Ubuntu on the Acer AS5672 laptop

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxI have previously written about the AS5672 laptop and FreeBSD, there you will also find detailed specifications on the laptop itself. This is just a short article to sum up what happened when I booted an Ubuntu 6.06 liveCD on the laptop. Here is the Ubuntu dmesg output. In short: the graphics card and LCD screen worked as before - VESA 1024x768, the wireless 3945 was detected and driver loaded, however I do not know if it works, because the "network wizard" thingy hadn't heard about WPA (which my wireless network uses), just WEP.

Create a secure Linux-based wireless access point

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxFrom Linux.com comes the article Create a secure Linux-based wireless access point. From the article: "Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2 (WPA2) is becoming the de facto standard for securing wireless networks, and a mandatory feature for all new Wi-Fi products certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. We all know the security weaknesses of its predecessor, WEP; this time they got it right. Here's how to implement the WPA2 protocol on a Linux host and create a secure wireless access point (WAP) for your network.". Good stuff!
