In my book this is a perfect mix between user's convenience, usability and security. It should be kept like that.fanthom wrote:@all
i will explain how this "password check" function works:
any ideas what i could improve here?
should i drop this function completely or leave it like that?
When booting the newer Porteus (from 1.0 alpha to 1.0 rc1, that is) I realized that the sound is muted with the speakers on my Toshiba Satellite Notebook.toby wrote:[sound issue]
Here is the tweak that worked for me:
Code: Select all
amixer -c 0 cset iface=MIXER,name='Speaker Playback Volume' 80%
But make sure that "-c 0" is really the interface you wanted to check, I needed to learn how amixer works and it needed some try and errors till I got it right...
Maybe this can be added into Porteus by default for 1.1 or such, since it seems that this is an error common to more than my notebook.
Of course it could also be that I am totally wrong with the above and it is only my kind of notebook...
Oh, and I use LXDE, not KDE anyway. But I want the sound in the virtual console and in X anyway... and with the above hack that works like a charm.
*downloading rc2 and will soon give you the heads up on how that works on the machines that can handle a 64 bit system*
