Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

Do you seriously believe that free phones and free everything for everybody is just around the corner? You did understand he meant 'free as in freedom', not 'free as in free beer', right? What I understand is that there's a substantial price premium at work at one product vs another, and that it's ...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

The special pre-order price on the Purism website for Q3 shipping is $649, not $249. That's a gentrified latté sipping hipster (image of purism CEO moderated away for readibility) price. Yes I understand that development costs time & money and that costs need to be recovered but at that kind of...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

A high-power high quality Chinese Android smartphone costs < $200. The special pre-order price on the Purism website for Q3 shipping is $649, not $249. That's a gentrified latté sipping hipster (image of purism CEO moderated away for readibility) price for folks who are looking to discuss something ...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

This Pinephone looks like a more palatable Linux phone option. It's still early days and in development (meaning not yet ready for the market) but the pricing is more aimed at the working man & woman instead of latté sipping Cali trustfund hipsters with a pet cause. Yes I am aware that it's not ...

Re: E-mu 0404 and getting nowhere...

I paid $25 for an old 0404 PCI and used it in Linux. Huge bargain and it sounds and works great. One can even load soundfonts into its limited memory. To get it working RTFM meaning the alsa docs, it's not rocket science. The alsa-firmware is needed and the snd-emu10k1 modules need to be loaded. Hec...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

So, you are against spreading misinformation and -at the same time- you want to pander to point of view of most users regardless of how inaccurate that could be. That is contradiction right there. A low latency kernel is a standard kernel compiled by selecting appropriate parameters at compilation ...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

+ avoid heavy duty desktops laden with bells and whistles + check what kind of scheduled jobs are set up and when they'll execute and disable ones which may cause issues + set qjackctl priority (or in jackd) to around 89 or more + set CPU to Performance Mode (instead of powersaving) to reduce xrunni...

Re: 16 sample buffer with Arch Linux

It is mysterious to me why an RT kernel did not work with AV linux and did work on Arch. One difference I noticed is that i have microcode installed on Arch, but not on AV. Could that be it? It could be a bug in my processor that microcode fixed. If anyone knows, please share. :D The kernel is part...

Re: 16 sample buffer with Arch Linux

I'm over it. :D My intention was not to stir up tribalism over 'this distro is better than that distro'. I haven't tried every distribution, so I don't know. My experience is that a standard distribution needs software removed to handle audio well. As an example KX studio disables baloo, which mean...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

Here is my take on what's needed for a good low latency system. 1. Hardware that doesn't cause problems, e.g. motherboards without SMIs, peripherals that don't have a driver causing high peaks in kernel scheduling latency, etc. 2. A lowlatency or realtime kernel. 3. Interrupt handlers exported as t...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

If bad, outdated, documentation is what you are complaining about, than I would suggest to double check few of your statements: A low latency kernel is a standard kernel compiled by selecting appropriate parameters at compilation time. Stop being pedantic. Most users will assume that what's supplie...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

In Linux kernels 3.0 and later, many of the additionally required realtime patches have been incorporated as standard. For those who are recording Audio, a standard non-realtime kernel may be sufficient for your needs, and running Jack with a non realtime kernel will work fine. Adhering to poorly w...
