Re: ALSA on Raspbian

Nevermind, skipping that and doing the modprobe step helped.

Thanks.

ALSA on Raspbian

Has anyone managed to get ALSA working? I've installed Shairport but can't get it to output anything through the headphone jack.

recompiling kernel with NFS server extensions

First off, Raspbian is amazing. Huge speed increase coming from Debian softfp.

I'd like to recompile the Linux kernel with NFS server extensions built in. Does anyone have any advice as to how to do this?

Re: Email from Farnell

Surprise, surprise, the world seems to have forgotten about Canada again.

Ordered Feb. 29th at 6 AM EST, shipping August 15th.  *sigh*

Re: *slight* update on shipping from Farnell/Newark...

Just checked, my order from Newark Canada (placed at 6 AM EST Feb. 29th) is now set to ship July 17th, rather than August 15th.

I mean, it's better, but only slightly.  What was that about shipping to everyone by end of June?  Hope it's another rough computer estimate
