Hello, Planet Debian! (also, RFH: sponsorship-requests)

Hi Debian! Just to briefly introduce myself, I'm Vincent (vcheng@d.o, vincent_c on OFTC/Freenode) and I'm a recent graduate of the NM process, having attained DD-ship (is that even a word?) about a month ago in January. Before that, I was a DM since mid-2012, and ...

Linux kernel 3.6 audio distortion/noise

Since I've spent a few hours of my time tracking the source and potential workarounds for this annoying bug, I figured that I may as well document my findings here. The latest Linux kernel (i.e. 3.6.0 at the time of writing) has a bug whereby if ...


Toshiba Satellite P850 on Linux

It's back to school season again, and I've decided to splurge some money on a new laptop a week or two ago. And of course, a new laptop means that I have to make sure that all the hardware components inside work with Linux, which is never a ...
