I started to use xscreensaver to lock my GUI. However once I run xscreensaver daemon, the screen blanking (that worked before in console and GUI modes alike) stops working. The xscreensaver it just runs these screen-saver graphical apps. in a loop and never ever blanks. I think this is because power management is not supported or disabled in BIOS (this is not your standard PC mobo - it is a PC/104 standard industrial PC compatible SBC - Single Board Computer). If this is the case, then I wonder how the console blanking works when xscreensaver daemon is not working and why xscreensaver is disabling the screen blanking? Shouldn't these two processes be independent of each-other?

Hello again

I have already found the solution.

So I have loaded the "alsa4dslv2.dsl" at bootup and have set the alsa boot option.
I know this extension works. This means, I have already used it and have a "/etc/asound.state" file generated by "
sudo alsactl store
Instead of making a backup of the files like mentioned above I have discovered a way to ad files to a .dsl extension.
First of all, you rename alsa4dslv2.dsl in alsa4dslv2.tar.gz.
Than do
gzip -d alsa4dslv2.tar.gz
and you can ad files to it by doing "
tar -rf alsa4dslv2.tar file1 file2
Then do
"gzip alsa4dslv2.tar"
and, rename it back to alsa4dslv2.dsl.
To my surprise it works. For one or another reason opening and repacking it makes it useless.
So I added the files /etc/asound.state and /etc/modutils/sound.

At this point there are still 5 commands to execute. I have put them all in a file that I have made executable. To do that, I Did "
sudo chmod 777 file
You can put that file in your home directory (eg: /home/dsl/.alsastart) and than start it at bootup as a command in "/home/dsl/.xinitrc" or "/opt/bootlocal.sh".

The 5 commands are:
1)sudo /opt/alsa/snddevices 2) sudo depmod -a 3) sudo modprobe snd-intel8x0 (=driver for your sounddevice) 4) sudo update-modules 5) sudo alsactl restore.
If it complains about unresolved characters in a certain driver, normally you can continue.

Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( www.asitis.com {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

Time to update my DSL experience status.
The original machine I ran DSL on (see my original post, it was my Samba/backup server and LED Matrix News Headlines Prompter) died last year (motherboard). I could not buy identical mobo and DSL unfortunately was not compatible with my new mobo: CDC-1/D2550, which is a nice low power 2-core Atom (1.86 GHz) processor, fan-less with 2GB of RAM. DSL did not like my SATA controller, otherwise I could get DSL running on it with network and everything. I tried Puppy Linux, but for some reason Puppy also did not like SATA on my mobo (disks were disappearing) therefore I ended up installing Ubuntu Server 12.04 and that works great so far. This does not mean I stopped using DSL! I have a small PC/104 standard single board computer, with 300MHz CPU and 256 MB of RAM equipped with Compact Flash card socket which is great for DSL. I installed DSL on a 128 MB Compact Flash card. System boots from it and runs from RAM, leaving still about 50 MB of storage space on tha CF card. I added 4GB usb pen drive as a storage and I setup 256 MB swap file on that pen drive (I experienced some crashes related to insufficient memory when opening big PDF files and such). The system has this retro look and feel to it, which I love and I use it with GUI and keyboard/mouse/display attached as a little client workstation and it works great. I installed smbfs and I am able to mount Samba shares from my Ubuntu Server. I am not yet sure what will be the designation of this little SB computer, but with multiple old fashioned serial/parallel ports and PC/104 expansion socket it is great for driving hobby electronics projects. I installed gcc compiler so I can create my own software directly on the platform, not to mention DSL already has a lot of scripting tools and with Unix style flexibility of Linux it is an awesome hobby platform, just like Raspberry Pi.
