Hi I installed Linux lite 2.2 for my friend on her old Sony Vaio VGN-FS415E. Everything is great except for 2 things:
the most annoying is a horrible intermittent very loud crackling from the speakers. I have Linux lite installed in dual boot with Windows XP and there is no noise in XP. How can I get rid of the noise?

Secondly, she wants to manage her new iPod with Linux lite. I have installed gtkpod but what should I use to import CDs? If I copy them, the wav files are too big and Banshee doesn't seem to be supported in Linux lite. Clementine has no option to import CDs that I can see.

Many thanks

Hi pamdo, please attach a system report as explained here - https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/hardware.html#report Thank you.

For gtkpod, is the device supported? Only some Gen devices are, see here - http://www.gtkpod.org/wiki/Home under 'Status of Supported Hardware'

I use Deadbeef which imports CD's but it's not in the repo's
If you download the portable version which unpacks into a self contained folder with the Deadbeef script to click on in it but there's a .deb there to.

I have it unpacked on my data partition so all my other OS's use the same app and I don't have to keep installing it, I do the same with Firefox and my FX profiles, I was pleased when Deadbeef worked when I tried out Manjaro so I guess it would work on OpenSUSE.

OK Here is the system report. I did download Realtke drivers from their website but when I unzipped the package and tried to open the readme file and the pdf I got a message saying no such file exists, so I guess I'm doing something wrong. I need to be told how to install a package that's not in the repo.
Her iPod is a new 16Gb touch so I suppose that won't be supported. Any other solutions? XP is SO slow on her machine she refuses to use it.
Many thanks

Hi I seem to have solved the problem myself! The sound config was set at analog duplex. I chnaged it to analog stereo and no more noises and the sound seems fine!
Now for the music/ipod problem!
