Why continue with Exprimo?

What does it offer that Precise does not?

Better software.

I just switched to the Exprimo in this thread (5.X.3.4.12) from 5.X.3.6.2.1, which indeed has a newer kernel, but doesn't handle the software as well. For example in the newer version, lmms has dropouts (edit: spoke too soon, having dropouts with this too), and the Audacity icon in the menus disappeared.

I did get a chance to look over a couple of the Precise threads - it sounds as though it's optimized for newer computers.

About turbo.
Just edit /root/Startup/0acpid for you liking. Replace performance.sh word with turbo.sh and you have turbo speed ie full cpu performance when you are on ac/dc and with battery.


It turns out that this is non-persistent from cold-boot to cold-boot.

Something somewhere is over-writing it in 5x15.

Hi,

-----------------
[SOLVED] the solution is quite trivial --> set the synthetyzers "reverb" and "chorus" effect to zero and it is done ! Smile ( go to Menubar-->Display-->Synthetizer --> there set the "reverb" and "chorus" cursors to zero; then quit and restart (...MUST be done !) and it is done !!)
details: here have an Confused Intel82801DB-ICH4 sound device
... very basic and low resources...isn't?
"reverb" as also "chorus" functions are resources consuming;
so not surprising that playing sounds + reverbs +chorus on that «poor little ICH4» would slow down sounds rendering ... together with graphic colateral mouse cursor effects ... Shocked
-----------------


(note: all tests reported below on the very same PC, each time in pfix=ram = pristine mode)
have installed mscore1.2.pet + qt-4.8.0-basic-with-qtwebkit-dpup.pet, both from exprimo repo;
1. Musescore starts and works OK as for score editing;
but:
sound rendering (press the start audio icon in the menu bar) fails after, let's say, 20 or 32 quarter notes are played (usng the "Reunion" default score).
From then the sound is choppy together with mouse cursor erratic motions.

I've googled around without finding any workaround.

here are comments from console
Quote:
# mscore
Alsa_driver: buffer size requested 1410 got 1411
Alsa_driver: full buffer not available at start.
registerPlugin: add action idx 0
Load plugin: no menu property
preferences.checkUpdateStartup: 168
lastupdate: 17.02.2013 06:56:32.674
Alsa_driver: stat = 00, xrun of at least 13489,064 ms
Alsa_driver: full buffer not available at start.
pcmStart failed
Alsa_driver: stat = 00, xrun of at least 265,609 ms
Alsa_driver: full buffer not available at start.

pcmStart failed
Alsa_driver: stat = 00, xrun of at least 261,430 ms
Alsa_driver: full buffer not available at start.
pcmStart failed
...
killed
#


2. This is also the case with musescore-1.1-dpup.pet.

3. Now, if again in a pristine session, installing forum member palydayz's Musescore-1.0-lucid525.pet, which is version 1.0, with all qt stuffs included, then sound works OK.

[SOLVED]-->see above Smile

All my spreadsheets stored are Gnumeric. Where is the bug ? Thanks to help me.
Waiting for it, I have installed an old french version, from Toutou linux forum.

I want to second this opinion. I've been relying on Exprimo 5.X.3.4.12 the last few days now too. For exe, Alpha 08 might be great with the latest kernel but it boots up squealing thru my speakers. I'm hoping Micko updates PHATSlacko, it's very nice too.

Since Exprimo uses the binaries from Debian Squeeze, which is rapidly moving toward EOL, things are moving along to Wheezy...... the new Debian 7.0 stable release.Shouldn't be any problem using Exprimo into the future , it's not going to stop working, but development has moved on to Wheezy.

So, for a Samsung NB30 Netbook you would recommend switching to dpup Wheezy?

It will be used by someone who doesn't want to learn the OS but rather to just use it - so it needs to be stable and versatile (for school, social media, and artsy/music stuff).

Personally, I dont like Wheezy so much as Squeeze so I intend to stay with Squeeze (call me a luddite) because I dont like the desktop in Wheezy. Anyway, I have just installed 32-bit Xampp on Exprimo Squeeze 5.x.15 and it seems to work OK. It shows the localhost page and loads phpinfo(). Now I just have to set upt he virtual hosts and check out mysql access. There was one small glitch on installation when it wanted to create the mysql user and could not due to there being no useradd command.

I dont know if there are instructions to do this in the previous pages of this thread. If there are, I am sorry to repeat. If there aren't then I will quickly summarise here.
--------------------------------
download the relevant 64/32-bit version
http://www.apachefriends.org/download.html

FAQs
http://www.apachefriends.org/faq_linux.html

# chmod 755 xampp-linux-*-installer.run
# ./xampp-linux-*-installer.run

mine failed on adding a system user mysql
so I had to add this manually and the group mysql

# addgroup mysql
# adduser -G mysql -S mysql
then say no to abort installation (and it should continue until the end)
If you abort the installation, it will de-install XAMPP

in browser http://localhost should give the Xampp web page

although it works, this is not a proper debian apache2 installation.
There should be /etc/apache2 directory and the associated conf files and enabled-sites etc but there aren't. no a2ensite and a2dissite commands to enable locally hosted sites for development.
Maybe I have missed something, have I?

Exprimo is very Pulpy
Pulpy Puppy would be a nice name, won't it.
This Puppy has not the “orange peel” appearance of cellulite of youngest ones. for smooth, toned contour, and inexpensive in MBs (MB is the currency in Puppy's World).
Sure new rockets are in development , but they crash
Exprimo was built in Europe. "That will never fly, told us the american competitors !" As Ariane, european has proved once again that quality is not dependent of quantity Very Happy

To get it faster, exprimo has 64 bit boosters, at home.
In forum francophone, we complain not having news from our 'usagés' Slaxen. because they don't post when no bug.
So i Post to remind Dpup Exprimo is the best (running my old Acer, and the quite new Medion)
Furthermore, Pemasu was so kind to make pets for his users, to avoid them looking for dependances or removing useless ones.
Unfortunately, Pemasu gone away, no answers to my questions about Gnumeric...
