Another surprise.

Put the Creative AES-7 in not expecting much since its a newer creative device and it works!

The difference between even the high end built in motherboard audio and this is Immense!

I know its not stylish anymore to have a dedicated audio card but I highly recommend you guys get one.

I have the AES-7 going into a Tube Amp, then into a pair of Klipsch bookshelf speakers.

Boobies!

  • Linux Lite: 4.8 64bit

  • CPU: Intel i5-3340M

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel HD Graphics 4000

  • Kernel: 5.x
I just installed LL 5.4 on my Dell E6330 latop, was using 3.8 before. It's great love it, however every once in a while I get  random freezes, that occur while doing anything. It's very odd, when I was using 3.8 since it was first launched it was perfect never had one issue. The only thing I did was, bring back the older start menu and remove the newer one. I like the old one :)

Well I went down to v4.8 as that was a bit more stable for my laptop. Since 3.8 stops with updates this month I have at least 2 more years on 4.8. 😁 Plus I use my laptop mostly for downloading, then transfering over the files to my gaming PC. Sometimes I bring it to work, so it gets used most there, with browsing online, youtube, movies. etc 🙃 I have tried many other versions of Linux but Linux Lite will always be the one I go to. Thank you for making it the best version of Linux. Awesome work as always. 👍🍻

That's awesome it just works with no issues. I myself have the same card AE-7 in my main gaming Win 10 PC. Huge difference between the card and the onboard audio. I'm using a ASRock x470. I will always use a high end sound card over any motherboard audio. Until that day comes when there is no difference between the two then I will stop buying them 😁

Hi! :)

I came back with the latest news.
While in the previous post I said I encountered problems and I had to reinstall Lite 5.2, while performing the tasks, I took some time to look closer at the logs.
Since reinstalling involves some more steps (Install, Update, check again for updates, custom apps install), I watched closer to my custom install script, which performs to basic jobs: PPA install and repository updates.
I noticed that the Daniel Richter's PPA, lacked the appropriate version for the current OS release and this leads to a script break and requires the deactivation of the PPA. There are lots of posts on this board regarding "Update failed", most of them due to invalid PPAs. Then, the installation goes nicely.
Yesterday, I reissued the update, this time without the PPA for Grub Customizer and everything went as supposed.
So, Jerry was right, nothing was wrong in the update script.
The problem occured due to the invalid PPA, which lead to the update crash, probably at GRUB update stage.
I hope that this info will help others avoid this kind of trouble, people that encounter similar crashes due to PPAs.
The workaround is this (the snippet is extracted from my custom installs script):

Code: [Select]
# This has been shortened, the entire script is too long and irrelevant for the case in discussion...
# Adding repo for Martin Baert's SimpleScreenRecorder:
echo "Adding repo for Martin Baert.s SimpleScreenRecorder..."
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maarten-baert/simplescreenrecorder -y
echo "Done!"
echo "============================================================"

# Adding repo for OpenShot 1.4.3 and OpenShot 2.x.
echo "Adding repo for OpenShot 1.4.3..."
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openshot.developers/ppa -y
echo "Adding repo for OpenShot 2.x..."
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openshot.developers/libopenshot-daily -y
echo "Done!"
echo "============================================================"
# Adding repo for DVD Styler
echo "Adding repo for DVD Styler..."
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/dvdstyler -y
echo "Done!"
echo "============================================================"
echo "              Actualizez informaţiile Repository..."
echo "============================================================"
echo ""
sudo apt-get update
echo ""
echo "============================================================"
# End of snippet

Now, if you have a set of PPAs, you may change this code accordingly and BEFORE issuing any update or upgrade, you can check the validity of the PPAs, by launching a script as the above. If the "get" request ends up with an error (such as missing appropriate version), disable the PPA, then rerun the following command to ensure everything is OK:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updateIf the repository update returns again an error, disable the other PPA, etc., untill all PPAs pass the check.
Only AFTER checking ALL the PPAs the update or upgrade will work.
I failed the upgrade because the failure of Daniel Richter's PPA was unexpected. It never happened before so it caught me "offside"...

Hope this will help! :)

Best regards! ;) :)

The upgrade from 5.2 to 5.4 was successful following the tips from Trinidad Cruz.
I also change the repositories from Brazil to USA before the upgrade, because I have found no upgrades there.

Nice job. Awesome distro :wave

Hi,
I changed my repos to Brazil today and worked fine. While checking the status of the repos I recieved a TIMEOUT from Oceania.
I run a ping from the command line and it worked.
 ping -c 10 www.lagoon.nc
