Ali’s Mental Meanderings

wandering, not lost

First Post from Nostariel

Nostariel is the name I’ve given to my Dell Inspiron. Little ‘sibling’ of Ielenia, my desktop machine.

Still a few things I need to fix to get things how I’d ideally like them. The problem with 915resolution is one I’d love dearly to solve, it’s a pain having to restart x after configuring it again after each boot. Maybe I can get clever and script it or something. Sound is a non-event in Xine and I can’t work out why. Also, this is the most novel and least troubling of my problems – I plug in headphones and the music comes through at full volume but rather than turning my speakers off, they go to half volume. It seems this has happened with a few machines. Sadly because it’s a notebook, it’s not as easy to solve as just turning off your speakers. Unless it’s something I can do in software.
