Last post by xaos - September 26, 2022, 08:13:47 AM
Welcome. I've just installed Sparky on my Matebook and I have no sound after the fresh installation. What is strange, I used Sparky in the past on the same laptop and everything was ok.

The system says it's unable to find any soundcard - no input or output devices found, so I can't use my microphone, too.

When i run aplay --list-devices I get:

aplay: device_list:275: no soundcards found...

When I run /sbin/lsmod | grep snd I get:

How can I fix the lack of the sound? I need simple, step-by step instructions, because I'm rather a beginner user of Linux. Thank You in advance :)

EDIT:

I have just installed the newest kernel, because i thought it could help, but nothing changed...

Link to Arch Grub issue:
https://endeavouros.com/news/full-transparency-on-the-grub-issue/

Not sure what it means of anything for Sparky and Debian Linux.

edit:
I restarted the PC so I could see the Grub screen again, this time I finally paid attention and at the top (the title) is the Grub version I currently have installed: Grub 2.06-3
I know it is silly I've never noticed this before. I wish there was a simple terminal command that worked to tell me current Grub version without having to restart.

Learning what SDL interface is for
Most of the other SDL apps I tested seem to be working so perhaps it isn't the problem. Maybe not updating the Grub is the culprit. Idk.

The Cli-based Cataclysm works fine, but the SDL-interface does not.

I used Double Commander as root to search all leftover instances of 'Cataclysm' on my PC that I could find, deleting all instances including all 3 cataclysm-dda-XYZ files located in the /var/cache/apt/archives/ directory. All the hidden dot.files too. 

I downloaded another SDL-interface based app/game, called 'slashem-sdl' and that seemed to work. I don't play or edit that game so I deleted and installed other SDL-interface based applications I could find in the repository.

I installed gearhead-sdl and gearhead2-sdl and all their recommended depends. Also sdl-ball, and wolf4sdl too.

Results:
gearhead-sdl worked.
gearhead2-sdl worked.
sdl-ball worked.

wolf4sdl did NOT work.

Downloaded freeciv as it also seems to use sdl2. The Freeciv game worked.

So maybe this is some sort of SDL-related problem?

Only CDDA in Cli-mode works. Every other SDL-based game I tried except for wolf4sdl worked. Now I got to delete those games.

I am more concerned about the recent Grub updates, what is the correct option to choose for the Grub update?

"A new version of configuration file grub is available, but the version installed currently has been locally modified"

..Problem is, I don't recall modifying Grub or anything else in the '/etc/default/grub' directory.

Newbie questions / Re: nm tray - Edit connection
Last post by mmortal03 - September 24, 2022, 10:43:16 PM
I ran into the same problem with the LXQt version. The problem is that nm_tray tries to call xterm to load nmtui-edit when you click on "Edit connections", but xterm is not installed by default on the LXQt version.

System upgrading / Beware libffi8 3.4.3 upgrade i...
Last post by bin - September 24, 2022, 08:30:37 AM
If you're running Sid with an extra ARCH such as i386 please put libffi8 3.4.2  and libffi8:i386 3.4.2 as HOLD. They cannot both be upgraded to 3.4.3 and you're left with a mess. It's something to do with libffi8ubuntu1.

While waiting for the answer to the GRUB issue I made another attempt to remedy the CDDA issue.

Step 1) Once again uninstalled CDDA.
Step 2) In my folder home/username/, I deleted the .config and .cache related folders for the game Cataclysm.
Step 3) Deleted the leftover folder 'cataclysm-dda' using root, it had some leftover extra folders from github mods: /usr/share/games/cataclysm-dda/.
Step 4) Reinstalled CDDA.
Step 5) Uninstalled CDDA again.
Step 5) Reinstalled CDDA again.

Same result as before. I killed CDDA =(

Applications / Recent GRUB / Sparky Updates (...
Last post by SparkyBookworm - September 23, 2022, 04:41:39 AM
Main issue: Please help me choose the best option for GRUB during the last routine update.

[I wasn't sure what forum category to post this question in as it pertains to the preinstalled GRUB and the game CataclysmDDA  that is available in the awesome Sparky App store. Preinstalled or Sparky applications Category? I am sorry in advance if this post is in the wrong subforum!]

So, during the recent Sparky updates it prompted for a Grub update, looks almost like this (except with blue border instead of purple):



The only text difference on on my screen being: "Configuring grub-efi-amd64"... "A new version (/tmp/grub.QnyrEIhqHe) of configuration file /etc/default/grub is available"...

Not knowing what to choose, I chose "keep the local version currently installed" option.

Thankfully, choosing this option did not break my system's ability to boot into XFCE's GUI.

However, Cataclysm DDA no longer functions, EXCEPT in the Cataclysm-dda-curses mode using terminal. I tried uninstalling & purging the old Cataclysm files and then reinstalling the game with same results. The game is of course a minor issue to me other than my concern with the recent Grub update (which is a potential major concern).

The only thing I can think of on my part that could be causing the issue other than the Grub option I chose during updates is that I have been tinkering directly within the Cataclysm's JSON files using root privilege in exploration attempts to test out modifications I've made with CDDA mods. I've been tinkering with with these JSON files without any issue until after this update. Cataclysm-dda-curses still works for me. I am left wondering: *is the problem only on my end?* or was it my choice in Grub, or my tinkering that broke Cataclysm-dda-sdl?

I am most concerned with my choice of updating the GRUB, should I have chosen any of those other various options, and NOT the "keep the local version currently installed" option?

My concern is obviously more so with my decision/choice for GRUB, though I am also kind of perplexed by the breakage of the CDDA gui too (it just won't start now unless in terminal's Ascii game mode). Cataclysm obviously is a much lower priority to me compared to that of the recent GRUB decision(s). What was/is the best choice for the GRUB option? I know Arch recently went through some Grub issues.

THANK YOU!
