@ Kacper Pluta:

I didn't know that there are special Linux-VSTs that are no *.dll. Do
you know that there is a special Google for Linux?  Maybe you can find
more you're looking for by using it.





And maybe for every country.

Have you ever tried Ion2 instead of a classic WM/DE? With my old
hardware I had lots of seg faults, very borderline it has been with
KWin/KDE my fave DE. I'm a "native" assembler and basic coder (I'm 41
and from the generation QL, C64, Atari) and I have "prejudices"
referring to C and even though I'm only using Linux today I think that
seg faults are homemade for Linux because it's a C-OS. It's not possible
to program in C without RAM conflicts or to optimize speed and sizes of
applications but I have to add that I even go nuts with the makefile for
"hello world" ;), so I stopped programming. Since a long time I'm only a
user and moreover a lasting noob for Linux.

Is there anybody out there using a ASUS M2A-VM or M2A-VM HDMI? I haven't
any trouble with the mobo and Ardour (until now, because I didn't run
Ardour since I have it ;)) but I'm not fine with the Suse and Debian
Vesa drivers and I'm not sure if my main memory is fine because Memtest
is detecting it wrong, anyway, I will end this mail here and take a look
at a Linux hardware forum :).
