    Any Linux users?

    I really feel bad ... do me a favour, arrange a meeting place and i will do the fresh installation and then will see what comes next.

    Any Linux users?

    I am assuming that System->Preferences->Sound and go to Hardware it's not showing anything at all. 1: If its not showing then you must try this command: sudo aptitude -y purge alsa-base && sudo aptitude -y install ubuntu-desktop this will reset the entire sound card settings and reload. It always worked for me and hopefully will work for you. 2: If in settings your output device is listed or showing dummy output as you stated earlier then use below commands: Step 1: sudo alsa force-reload It will take couple of seconds to finish this command. Once its done reboot. Try to check if its working now perfect you do not have to proceed to step 2 or 3, but if it did not then proceed to step 2 and so on. Step 2: sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio Step 3: sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio Last and final command : pulseaudio --start waiting for the results now fingers crossed...... You do not have to pay back as we are member of one family so it absolutely fine though I will disturb you a lot for my car . Thanks for appreciating

    After installing it you must run the command again to see your hardware list. It will show you if system has any sound card attached to it or not, and even dummy sound outputs as well. The result will look something similar to this:

    How to prevent winch cable fraying?

    I think for short term prevention Dry chain lube spray can be beneficial but its always better either to use precautions such as gloves or buy a new one.
  7. How much did you enjoy your first drive? Cannot explain in words. It was really something I wanted learn for a long long time. And with Carnity my long awaited Dream Came True. Not a club but the best family of off-roaders. What did you enjoy about the drive? The convoy management, different levels of drive and The ultimate guide to keep momentum. Which part of the drive you think you enjoyed the best which you would like to repeat? The whole experience was amazing and definitely looking forward to join another available ride for my level determined by the Lead. Do you think there was a good mix of lecture and practical, was the lecture too long, and any part that can be avoided or done in a shorter or different way? Do you think anything else could be added to the lecture? Briefing was perfect. All the questions were answered. Do you think prior reading material would help? I have watched many tutorials and read many articles but when I got initial Briefing of the drive by the Lead that was the moment for my actual understanding. So a big NO!!! Would you know where on the Carnity forum you would be able to find the information you are looking for? Its very easy to navigate. Is there anything you think could be done in a better way? to my experience not at all. Whatever and how it is ... its perfect. How do you think you can progress within the current atmosphere and learning opportunities provided? I just did one ride with group and gained a lot of confidence, for sure If i keep on following with this group and the opportunities provided i will be a good, confident off-roader.

    Finally a good day has ended. It was an amazing experience for me and always felt like I am surrounded by elder brothers. Special thanks to all for such a warm welcome and letting me explore desert in a very safe way. @Gaurav The Guide, @RahimdadHigh Flyer @skumar83 The best Lead , Asif Bhai the best man & Saleem bhai jolly fellow. You guys really took great care of me & my car the whole journey and I could not ask for more. Specially the *Pit Stop* And in last the best moment for me where I have been honored as Driver of the Day. Love you all P.S: I think the drive shaft mounting is damaged. So if anyone can share the contact details of Saleem Bhai so I can get in touch with him to get a quick fix. Thanks

    Hello Everyone! Excited to go for my first off road. Needs little help for getting equipment's I might require on this trip... Please any suggestions so I can arrange them before the trip. I own Range Rover 2004 Vogue, did many off roads but to rocky terrain so is it fine with this car for desert and also do I require any modifications to it? Last question is it OK if I bring one or two friends of mine? Input from experts will be appreciated Regards
