Re: Github Microsoft/calculator README.md

I consider myself a Free Software and Open Source supporter, and if you are so openly hostile to me, this makes me wonder how I should treat you. The idea it that they wanted to market "free software" to businesses This is fairly accurate: Open Source was coined for situations where the m...

I like how the F-Droid appstore for Android not only just contains Open Source apps, but also marks any apps that contain 'Anti-Features' so as a user you are aware and can make your own choice

Re: linuxaudio.org is offline

It appears they have suffered some kind of filesystem outage and are working on recovering it now.

Re: Github Microsoft/calculator README.md

I've written about this: https://lyberta.net/articles/tech/free_sw_untrusted.html Interesting article. I completely agree just slapping a Free/Open license on software doesn't automatically make it trusted - but at least you have some chance to start trusting it. You mention the "event-stream&...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

the EU is really letting me down. I am disappointed beyond any reasonable limit by this whole Article 13 madness. I agree wholeheartedly. While intended to protect content creators, both article 11 and article 13 will make it almost impossible for smaller platforms to exist online - inevitably lead...

Re: Essential information for new users

I realize I'm quoting a fairly old message, but it looks like I'm having the same issue: I've written around 4 between posts and replies by now, and I'm still being told they're going to be moderated. Is there anything I may be doing wrong? Thanks! I think we've upped this to 3-5 posts because spam...

Re: Most used Linux distribution?

I'm trying to find graphs/etc on which Linux distributions are used the most but I'm having a hard time doing so. Does anyone know a good, well-sourced webpage that might has that? This is almost impossible to tell... https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=popularity is often quoted, but of cou...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

your company can not work within those NEN rules your company will not even be allowed to carry out assignments This seems overly broadly stated, if true at all. Can you give any specific examples? I'm a software developer myself, and I see software developers commonly use Linux, also in large fina...

Re: cyclictest

It's CPU1 (the green line) that's letting the side down. :) The other three CPUs have a really good maximum latency -- around 50 microseconds. That's 0.05 milliseconds. It's interesting that CPU1 is so much worse than the others. Makes you wonder if there's anything tied to CPU1. If there's somethi...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

I remember manually stripping down the kernel configuration because my machine had only 4mb of RAM instead of the then-recommended 8mb... I don't think I've bothered with it since :D

Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

How do you benchmark that you get better performance when using ALSA directly? For a single audio source, using ALSA directly should give better results. There's a whole chunk of RT processing taken out of the audio chain. That is of course undeniably true. On the other hand it is not entirely obvi...

Re: Wiki update

I'll take it out completely. As stated somewhere else this is also better for SSD on the long-term. I don't understand how it could have anything to do with your SSD. I suspect what lilith means is if you use RAM-backed storage instead of Disk-backed storage, that might reduce wear and tear on your...

Re: Wiki update

If I don't have any entry in fstab it is still used as it is in the kernel by default? Can this be checked somehow? You can check with "mount | grep shm" to see if /dev/shm is available. I'm not sure if JACK tells you whether it is actually using it, but if it's available then it should. ...

Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

You are using 3 periods instead of 2. Ah right, yes, that is definitely a factor that makes an enormous difference. With 2 periods per buffer, indeed I get much lower numbers: jackd 0.125.0rc1 Copyright 2001-2009 Paul Davis, Stephane Letz, Jack O'Quinn, Torben Hohn and others. jackd comes with ABSO...
