brian|lfsdid I miss an update today that flew by my mic settigns were all messed up04:31
cruxbot[opt.git/3.3]: wine: 2.14 -> 2.1504:41
j_vbrian|lfs: should there be a question mark between 'flew by' and 'my mic'?04:41
j_vi'm not clear if you are saying you think an update could have 'messed up mic settings' or 'fixed previously messed up mic settings'04:43
j_vperhaps i'm being obtuse... it's been known to happen, but it's not deliberate04:44
*** elderK has joined #crux04:52
j_vbrian|lfs: either way, perusing through recent commits on, i don't see any updates lately the seem like they would affect mic settings04:52
j_velderK: did you have any progress with the FF issue?04:53
*** nimm has joined #crux04:54
elderKj_v: Hey j_v! Just the guy I was looking for :)04:54
elderKTurns out you were right regarding overheating.04:54
elderKThe CPU/chipset was being very smart - the temperatures never got that high because it was *always* being throttled.04:55
elderKI tore the laptop apart - took out the motherboard, removed the heatpipe, fan, etc.04:55
elderKFound out that the fan was mostly blocked with lint-like material, as were the intakes into the outward vent.04:55
elderKAs for the heatpipe, the thermal paste joining it's... pad... to the CPU was also kind of... stale.04:56
elderKSo I added new thermal paste.04:56
elderK:P The lint I removed was crazy. It was burned almond color :P04:56
elderKj_v: I'm still getting odd warnings in Linux and Windows regarding frequency scaling - about the firmware not giving up control. That seems to be something to do with my UEFI.04:56
elderKOtherwise, the machine is running at full speed now.04:57
elderKSo, Firefox is running fine.04:57
j_vvery cool!04:57
elderKTurns out I've been running ~800MHz for a few months without noticing....04:57
elderKAll I noticed was Firefox being slow.04:57
elderKI noticed builds took longer but I didn't really twig...04:57
elderK:D Now at 2.6GHz :)04:58
j_vwell, maybe having a hog like firefox running like a 3 legged dog can be seen as a canary in some cases04:58
elderKYeah, I'd say so.04:58
j_vglad it's ironned out04:58
elderKMe too!04:58
elderKI was getting really frustrated.04:58
elderKFacebook is still a pig. But, it's at least usable.04:59
elderKAnywho, just wanted to drop by and let you know how it all went.04:59
elderKIf someone here comes along with a similar problem, you might want to let them know that just because their temperatures aren't out of control, doesn't mean the CPU isn't overheating.05:00
j_vhey thanks for the good news05:00
elderKThe firmware / chipset might be smart enough to automatically limit it before temperatures EVER get crazy.05:00
elderKI'm kind of amazed how the system did it, tbh. As per our last discussion, my temperatures were well within sane limits.05:01
j_vyeah, it's definitely a good thing to be aware of05:01
elderKBut somehow, the machine figured out hey, there's a serious blockage - downrate.05:01
elderK:) You were right all along.05:01
j_vwell, just a guess from previous experiences, but glad it helped lead you to the fix05:02
elderKIt was you and a warning in the Windows event log, believe it or not.05:02
elderK"Kernel-Power-Thermal: Rate limited by firmware. Error bla bla bla"05:02
elderK:) Anywho, take care!05:03
elderKThank you for your help.05:03
j_vyou too05:03
j_vyou bet, np05:03

druid_droidhello crux'rs, I don't know how to figure out what's wrong with my microphone/alsa configuration20:09
onoderadruid_droid: I heard someone talk about some mic problem on here a few days ago20:11
onoderamight have been you though20:11
druid_droidyes onodera was me20:13
druid_droidI think, hope no one have the same problem,20:13
druid_droidI don't know if kernel problem or alsa, but I think I have used microphone since I build and installed this kernel.20:14
druid_droidbut at the same time I don't have changed alsa configuration or any port.20:14
druid_droidcan a virtual machine change configuration of alsa host ?20:15
j_vdruid_droid: have you rebooted since last time it worked properly?20:15
druid_droidI think yes, I'm starting to think is a kernel issue20:16
druid_droidI mean, my configuration issue20:16
j_vperhaps it's muted. if so, could try to enable via alsamixer?20:16
druid_droidthat was my first try, I notice that now microphone shows two bars and in the past only one20:17
druid_droidI will review my kernel configuration, I also need to update my kernel, there is a minor revision outhere20:21
j_vi remember having troubles with alsa in past and it was alsactl that was messing it up for me20:22
j_vwish i could remember the details20:23
j_vwas quite a while ago20:23
druid_droidI have my old kernel configuration, I will see what I have change in sound section,20:24
j_vi wonder if these would help:20:34

*** abenz__ has joined #crux21:04
frinnstdruid_droid: I had some very odd problems with alsa once - i had restored a backup21:06
frinnstturned out that the old alsa.state or whatever the file is called was "out of sync" with the runnign system21:06
frinnstasound.state under /var/lib/alsa21:07

j_vfrinnst: i was just looking at manual page for alsactl; perhaps 'rm -f /var/lib/alsa/alsa.state; alsactl init; alsactl store' would fix?21:15
j_vor whatever21:16
frinnstyeah Im not really sure what I did.. it was maybe 5 years ago21:21
frinnstbut i'll never restore that file if i ever restore a backup again :-)21:22

androidis CRUX the only distro which privides the reqyired source along wuth the distributed installer?22:29
androidred hat supposedly does though itvis22:31
androidit is a paid version22:32
SitriYou mean on the install media?22:33
*** [EaX] has quit IRC22:43
*** xor29ah has joined #crux22:43
androidsitri yes22:48
androidit looks like crux is one of the few which produce a corelated source.iso22:48
androidoracle did it22:49
androidwith sourcemage it doesnt look so22:49
androidnow CRUX is not considered a sourcebased distro is it?22:50
androidthis is attempt to find something programmer can use and redistribute for intentional purpose22:51
androidthis cant be done without rebuildable sourcecode22:52
