Lenovo T440P Audio Jack

I was trying to connect my newly purchased Oneplus Silver Bullets Ear phones to my office laptop T440P but for some reason it was not working. I spent almost INR 900/- for it but turned out to be incompatible with my laptop. 😦

Audio Splitter came to my rescue 🙂


I remembered the use of good quality audio splitters by the medical transcription professionals while I was working in MedsoftUSA. Audio splitter costs about INR 50-60, provides lossless audio quality to two headphones / ear phones with stereo output. After connecting ear phone via Audio Splitter I was able to listen sounds and join conference calls.

Now, I can use my Oneplus Silver Bullets with ease… I hope this could help others folks who are having issues with TP 440P model.


Packagekitd – High Memory Usage

Packagekitd daemon was using high memory usage on the Debian Linux server. Almost 30% of the total RAM!!

Tried to identify the root cause but didn’t help. so I had to kill the process to avoid further issues on the server.

I used below commands to kill the daemon process. After this got 30% RAM free…
ps auxf | grep package
[Get the process # for packagekitd]
sudo kill [process #]
BTW, I wish all my blog readers a very happy, prosperous and peaceful new year 2016!!!
