Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] Re: .94/SuSE 8.0/KDE

Thanks all. Results:

1) I was taking the URL too literally. The bits are actually under .... /update_for_8.0/base. Took two hours to install these and .94 now (not) working the same as .93 2) Very useful test suggested by Damien fails. I obviously have problems with sound I/O.Alsa installed. artsd stopped. CD player/KDE noises work fine, Damien's test & Yast2 test fail. Curious, but not for this forum. Need to learn more. (But if anyone has experience on SuSE 8.0/KDE/Toshiba Tecra 8000 ...!)

Thanks anyway

PostScript. General silly remark about software: I would like to able to build up a system to perform various functions by installing layers and run standard tests on each layer after it is installed to ensure it is working correctly. If something performs unexpectedly, I want to strip down the layers to find out in which software layer or interface the failure is. To get specific, could someone re-engineer the lower interfaces of Gnomemeeting as a set of tests to see whether/which the things it depends on in its environment are present and working. Just dreaming .... Thanks again.

In the README for the SuSE packages for .94 there is a list of packages prequisite for .94 on SuSE 8.0 and indeed my installation fails because they are not installed But where can I find them? I have searched on SuSE 8.0 YaST, SuSE websites etc but none of the packages mentioned seem to be there. What am I doing wrong?

I can't help for suse but I guess other users will help you.

Also (2), is there a simple test to ensure sound is working fully duplex before starting GM?

Imagine your soundcard is in /dev/dsp and your mic too. Open up a mixer
(for example gmix), and enable "Record" and also "Mute" for the
microphone. Mute is to disable the electronic echo in your speakers when
you talk in the mic.

Then you can do a 'cat /dev/dsp > /dev/dsp'
if it works, congrats! GM will work.
If it doesn't work, you could have to install ALSA for full-duplex
