I too spent many hours playing Elite on my BBC Micro. I never had a
floppy drive so this was from the cassette version which lacked some of
features. I think I managed to move up a couple of levels, but never
attained Elite status.

Well if you go we shall expect a report :)

I've had a good look around, but not found an answer. It probably
depends on learning much more about where ALSA stores stuff. It's one of
those annoying things that is likely to put people off Linux. Maybe
Ubuntu will do it better than Knoppix. We shall see.

Again, I've searched for clues with no success. These sort of problems
require analysis that I lack the time for. I had to resort to putting
the scanner on the Windows 98 PC to scan some pictures for my daughter.
I'd really like to do everything on Linux, but other family members just
want stuff to work and can't wait for me to get it working.
