    Re: Ubuntu/DeMudi as an Audio Workstation?

    Have installed Ubuntu, but now I have to get some sleep (the clock is eight in the morning here), and then I am going away for the weekend. I will start to try some sound applications next week, and see if I need the Demudi-kernel and such.

    Like Ubuntu so far. My firewire disk is working just fine with Ubuntu. Pjuh


    Cheers

    Re: Ubuntu/DeMudi as an Audio Workstation?

    Heyo, I found this massive list of sources.list entries. Definitely worth a look:
    http://www.inf.ufsc.br/~nardin/linux...n/sources.list
    The DeMuDi section is as follows:
    Code:
    deb http://http.demudi.org/debian woody local main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://http.demudi.org/debian woody local main contrib non-free
    You can try sid, stable, and unstable in place of woody if you want more bleeding-edge stuff, but that's the ticket. The Demudi-Kernel should be in there.

    I couldn't get these entries to work though, I'll do some tweaking later and see what I can do.

    Re: Ubuntu/DeMudi as an Audio Workstation?

    Here is some entries, Demudi and Debian Sarge:
    Code:
    deb http://apt.agnula.org/demudi/ testing local
    deb http://ftp.skolelinux.no/debian testing main non-free contrib
    deb http://ftp.skolelinux.no/debian-non-US testing/non-US main contrib non-free
    - I have removed all Ubuntu sources.

    There is a Demudi metapackage, which is "used for upgrade purpoises", but I'm not sure what that really means. I will try it, and upgrade all packages from the sources above(36 to install 656 to upgrade, 2 will be removed). I will come back with a report.

    Excellent, yes that works better than mine I don't get it though, the server setup was basically the same for both of those. Ah well, what can you do? I didn't remove all ubuntu repos, but I did install the metapackage and nothing is broken, but I also don't see anything new really.

    Re: Ubuntu/DeMudi as an Audio Workstation?

    I got one new thing over here; the JACK Audio Connection Kit(qjackctl) starts when I log in. But the stupid thing is that the Jack system will not load. First it complains of the lack of alsa sequenser, which I think is fixed with "/usr/share/alsa-base/snddevices", but then it (qjackctl) complains:
    Code:
    jack_create_thread: error 1 setting scheduler parameters after thread creation: Operation not permitted
    cannot start watchdog thread
    cannot load driver module alsa
    Anyone knows what this is about?



    Edit: found that I had typed jackctl over, I meant qjackctl

    But you can install sound tools from the Demudi source?

    Re: Ubuntu/DeMudi as an Audio Workstation?

    Anyone got Ubuntu to co-operate well with the Agnula-sources yet?

    My attemt was a failure, softly said. I hate to admit I'm back at the MS/Warez wagon, and planning to stay here atleast till the next Demudi release, or till I get hit by a new (or old) and fancy virus/spyware/somethingelse. The paranoia is implied in every click in this shiny rotten warez existence.

    Hope the next Ubuntu Linux release will be suitible for audio-production, and hope it will co-exist well with the Agnula sources for apt-get.
    Any chanse?

    Re: Ubuntu/DeMudi as an Audio Workstation?

    Thanks for your efforts Halus,
    Myself, i'd like to go with Demudi, but it looks like Mandrake will offer me better hardware support/for non-music related things.
    I read recently on Turn Key Linux Audio that they are working on downloads for more Linux versions, so perhaps Ubuntu is one of them.

    I'm stoked that Linux audio is viable, all these developers out there making good software for the love of it, it's how it should be really, The least I can do is use the linux applications to try and make great music. $1000us for Logic Audio is criminal. Charging commercial rates for individual users is obscene. As well the better choice linux is the legitimate choice, I can foresee the day when software companies start cracking down on warez users, like the music and film industries are doing now.

    You don't need to go back to MS. Try a Demudi partition to learn the applications, or Mandrake + Thac's RPMs. Have you thought of getting the firewire harddisk driver from Ubuntu or elsewhere and adding it to Demudi? then your problem would be solved.

    Peace

    Thanks for the pointer to Turn Key Linux Audio, chaotic. Interesting indeed.

    I could not stay two weeks at windows only, even if I got payed to do so. Going for the Demudi 1.2.1-RC1. The download got finished while I wrote this text. So good luck to me, and everybody else

    Please give a tell if you get any good or bad experiences with Mandrake, or other sollutions you may try out for audio works.

    Happy winter-celebration (or whatever you may celebrate these days)
    Happy new year.

    I'm not sure if you're still looking into this, but for the sake of other people finding this thread:

    The problem was that you didn't have the realtime-lsm module installed. The easiest way to install it is probably by using 'module-assistant', available in 'universe'. Once you've installed it, you'll need to run 'modprobe realtime gid=29', which loads the realtime Linux security module with the group ID of 29 (the Debian audio group).
