24/02, 22:39: PulseEffects on Debian Bullseye with working equalizer

There’s no lsp-plugins available right now in repositories. It’s mandatory to work at least for equalizer.

Finally after many hours of configuration tries or other packages I tried to compile from source.

sudo apt install php libgcc-s1 lv2-dev libgl-dev ladspa-sdk libsndfile1-dev libjack-dev
git clone https://github.com/sadko4u/lsp-plugins.git
cd lsp-plugins
make clean          # make sure it returns OK
sudo make install

Reboot. Might appear in syslog:

Feb 24 22:07:14 WOLOLO-YOLO gst-plugin-scan[2051]: g_param_spec_int: assertion 'default_value >= minimum && default_value <= maximum' failed
Feb 24 22:07:14 WOLOLO-YOLO gst-plugin-scan[2051]: validate_pspec_to_install: assertion 'G_IS_PARAM_SPEC (pspec)' failed

but it works now ;). Without additional pulseaudio-equalizer package or adding modules load in pulse/default.pa file.

Hiren’s, Parted Magic, VirtualBox freestyle…


Little freestyle, for posterity…

openSuse 12.1 NET-install from USB drive


Before openSuse 12.1 have been released I have trying to create bootable pendrive with 11.4 net installer version. I eased it off after little complications, but today I’ll show you example of proper usb stick preparation without Linux installed or without downloading syslinux tools – as tutorial on opensuse.org suggest.

This tutorial is quite universal – I’ll show you how to behave with any „isolinux compatible” distribution. It works also with openSuse 12.2 NET-Install.

What do you need:

  • USB Pendrive with above 256MB space – depending on requirements of our distro
  • RMPrepUSB” toolkit, it’s on Hirens BootCD – I’ll use latest, 15.0 version
  • ISO file of our chosen distro
  • WinRAR, WinISO, Daemon Tools or anything else to extract iso file
  • (optional) Notepad++ or any „programmers” editor

So lets start.

Niezbędnik informatyka. Narzędzia ratunkowe.


Hirens BootCD

Każdy informatyk bardziej wprawiony w naprawy systemów powinien być wyposażony w niezbędne narzędzia które mogą się przydać chociaż przy próbie ratowania swojego systemu operacyjnego. Narzędzie do partycjonowania, linia poleceń, testowanie sprzętu czy skanowanie dysków… Oto lista rzeczy, z których korzystam w takich przypadkach.
