Hi all, I am preparing to move the server to new hardware. I intend to use an Axiomtek ebox, an industrial embedded and diskless pc. This one: http://www.cadar.co.uk/embeddedpcs/ebox746.php I'm using an 8 GB compact flash card instead of a harddisk and xubuntu, pskmail and fldigi is running fine. But... The PC has no built in soundcard and no pci so I'm using a USB soundcard, have two different makes that I am testing. When listening to music I find the sound quality is great. When using fldigi I have some clicks, almost like static, and crashes on top of the psk. I have tested two different cards but they both behave the same way. When I listen to the pskmail traffic on 30 meters I can hear that a few others are using usb cards as well... But, they sound a little bit better than mine does. Any hints as to what can be done to improve the sound? 73 de Per, sm0rwo
Per, try adjusting the sample rate. This is a pretty common problem when using portaudio. You may also want to use OSS.
