I've been using Ubuntu for four years now, so it was hardly my first encounter.

In the past I programmed in Basic and machine code, so I'm not exactly a complete novice.

Then you should be able to work out the problem with just a bit of effort. BTW, google is your friend and searching for error messages almost always yields a direct answer.

A simple search for https://www.google.cz/search?q=Kerne...+-+not+syncing shows that error message is followed by a description of the kernel panic cause. Further search for the complete error message will most likely give you the answer.

I have a pentium 4 PC idle, and will try this.

I am not familar with HiFace: Amazon.com: M2TECH hiFace Hi-End S/SPDIF Output Interface with RCA connector - EHIFACER: Computers & Accessories at $159, seem rather steep. I have a turtlebeach audioadvantage micro (older model) that plugs into USB port and output to optical as pictured (works as DAC). I have t-amp/speaker combo so I will try this. I am unsure if TB micro will be supported natively in linux.
by the way if my TB micro does not work, as recommendation on DAC?, do I have to have HiFace if I buy external DAC?

Only if the DAC does not already have a USB input.

tried mpdpup, being not so linux smart, I got to mpd configuration (using usb stick boot), but can't seem to use my local HD as music storage. get confused with /mnt/music folder.

I may put in modem and see if I can get the another home linux PC (running crunchbang) folder be used as flac storage...

I tried to use local HD as storage with USB memory stick as boot, but failed... not linux-savy.

Kind regards

Slacko is Puppy derivative that is versatile, internet etc..., where as MPD seems like strip down OS mainly for media playing... I prefer MPD but having difficulties...

Default support for mpdpup

Hi gychang

If you have problem with the mpdpup, you'd better look for support on the original thread Puppy Linux Discussion Forum :: View topic - mpdPup - Simplified MPD Music Server/Jukebox - v0.9.3 where Idolse and many others will help you. They did for me to solve minor issues and now works very very well.

For the other question, you do not need necessarily a hiface, any USB to SPDIF will work, some better, some less. WaveIO is recognized as an excellent interface.

Good Luck
