hello + a couple of questions
Hello, Firstly I would like to say thanks for putting all this together. I was having trouble getting my new sound card (an m-audio firewire solo) to work properly using ubuntu. Somebody recommended that I try 64studio, and so far I'm really impressed with the speed and stability of this distro. I had jackd running solidly most of yesterday without a single xrun, and all the audio apps seem pretty well set up. Also the whole thing just seems a fair bit faster than ubuntu - applications start faster and the CPU seems to be loaded less overall. I would be interested to know what you've done to get it running this quick? My question is that in ubuntu, a few kde panel applets were installed by default - the ones I'm actually missing are: - the battery monitor (mainly) - the update manager, which reminds you when the system needs updating. - the network manager (not so important) I've tried installing kdeaddons, but this doesn't seem to include the applets I'm missing. How do I install these applets so I can add them to the panel. Another question is about how 64studio works together with the main debian repositories. I had a quick look at /etc/apt/... and it looks from that as if you can have the 64studio repositories and the debian ones enabled at the same time. Is this right? The reason I ask is that the other thing I do is a bit of programming, so I need access to the whole range of libraries and other programs in the main debian repositories.
