And after that please open a website.

Thank you! That worked!
I am astonished, because I thought you had suggested that before and it didn't work. Must have been something else.

Now is there a way to get Fienix to do that /sbin/dhclient thing when it's launched, so I don't have to go through the process every time I want to use Fienix?
Maybe avoid the 1 minute 10 second run of "Start job for Raise network interfaces" when I boot, as a bonus?

Hi Kilaueabart,

To set up the network device with the dhclient is only a temporary solution. You have to set up the network device again after a restart. Please add the following lines to the file /etc/network/interfaces:

Code: Select all
iface enP4096p4s4 inet dhcp

auto enP4096p4s4



After that the network connections automatically work after booting the X5000.

Cheers,
Christian

That solved the main problem, but I am still subjected to a 1 minute 11 second wait for "Start job for Raise network interfaces" every time I run Fienix. Granted that probably only amounts to 15 or 20 minutes a week, but it is an annoying new feature that I would like to cancel.

Hello Fienix friends

The sound does not work in my Fienix environment. When I check my packages, I see that alsa-base is not installed and when I try to install it, I get the following message:

Package alsa-base has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentionned in a dependency and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents of sources.list.

Can you do something to solve this problem?

Please install pavucontrol (PulseAudio Volume Control) with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install pavucontrol


After that, you have to start pavucontrol and select your output sound device.

Good luck!

Thank you Xeno74 for your answer.

It does not work :( Here is the message that is sent to me:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package pavucontrol is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.

E: Package 'pavucontrol' has no installation candidate

What's going on ?

Did the sound work before? Which sound card is installed?

I did not have Linux on my X5000, but the sound works of course on the Amiga with the same sound card.

When I check the data of the sound card, the only indication that is given to me via alsamixer is the name of the card: VirMIDI.

Make sure you have libao4 installed. I do not have a X5000 but that is what was needed to get sound working on my rather clunky X1000.

After loading libao4 then go to Control Center/Sound and try setting it up. The speaker test did not work for me but I can play AVI files and MIDI tunes with VLC.

Hi Mechanic,

Indeed, libao4 was not installed. But after installation, the result was not more conclusive. I had the sound, but not the video.

So I checked more precisely the configuration of my video card in the Control Center. My card has the following wording:
CMI8738 / C3DX PCI Analog Stereo Audio Device

Then I tried to run VLC. It was necessary that I modify the preferences in 'Tools / Preferences / Video', part Output which was positioned on 'XVideo output (XCB)'. I tried the output 'X11 video output (XCB)' and it works wonders, both audio and video.

Thanks Xeno74 and Mechanic for your suggestions. They allowed me to move forward.
