First of all greetings and congratulations for building such a wonderful
I have a long 8 years of hardcore windows programming, delved a lot into
windows internals, embedded, systems stuff.
After this bout, I thought I had enough of ms windows and shifted my
base to linux.
Wiped of windows completely from my laptop (AMD 64 Turion, 756 MB RAM,
80 GB HDD).....and since last one month , my everyday computing -
programming is based on linux, I must say I am totally at ease and
enjoying linux thoroughly ... TUX just rocks ...
However I had certain observations. I do not know, whether I am posting
this in the right forum or whether these can be at all called bugs..., I
thought of sharing these infos ...
1. For some reason the Volume of my laptop speakers sounds lot less
and mild as compared to the same volume level in windows.
2. Irrespective of the fact, that I had set a LOGIN and LOGOFF
sound in open Suse 10.1, but whenever I am booting in GNOME, I do not
hear the login/log off sound. This shows a irregular pattern where
sometimes I hear the sounds and sometimes I do not ........ However,
with KDE, this works absolutely fine. (I have a Conexant AC'97 Audio
3. Even If I have given correct settings in the Power Management
module, even when my laptop is on battery powered, it shows the AC Plug
icon in the system tray and as a tool tip, it shows (AC Powered fully
charged ...) (This happens both in GNOME and KDE) ....And one day I got
misleaded by this tooltip and after a full battery discharge without any
warning, my laptop went to a power off mode. I lost some data.
The only thing I can mention, is while my laptop boots to linux, two
tasks among all other shows a failure status.. which are
1. Loading IRQ Balance ..... (this fails some times and some times
it works fine..._)
2. Failure to Load the Dazuko Kernel module ..... (no idea what it
Other than this, all tasks shows a 'done/success' status.
Could anybody throw some pointer on the above issues....
I had initially started with open Suse 10.0 and then my friend informed
me about the availability of 10.1, and I moved to 10.1 thereafter.
Somehow, its just a feeling that in performace, open Suse 10.0 is faster
Otherwise, I am perfectly fine and comfortable with linux, and believe
me its my first peek into non windows systems... My eternal love for
C/C++ has increased further with my experiences in Linux ....
Great work guys, and with the stuffs delievered as 10.0 and 10.1, I have
a lot of expectations from 10.2 .....
