AV Linux 2018.6.25 ISO Update with UEFI Fixes Released!

Post by GMaq »

Hi everyone,

AV Linux 2018.6.25 (aka "50 years of GMaq!") has been released, I have entered a new decade today and want to celebrate with an improved AVL Release..

The April AV Linux 2018.4.12 release had a lot of improvements and updates with regards to the Audio and Video applications but some improvements needed to be made for systems with UEFI booting and systems with recent AMD Video display adapters not covered by SGFXI. I personally have no UEFI (or AMD) computers to test with and only could use VirtualBox for UEFI testing and thanks to bug reports from a few users and several fixes provided by our forum member 'korakios' I think many of the issues for actual hardware UEFI machines have now been addressed. If you have already successfully installed and updated AV Linux 2018.4.12 then you will not really need to be concerned with the updated June ISOs.

Fixes/Improvements:

-New 4.16 kernel with full RT Preempt and improved support for newer AMD Video cards.
-threadirqs was accidentally removed from the grub boot options, now fixed.
-UEFI boots that failed due to missing FAT32 ascii modules should now be fixed.
-Unetbootin boot failures due to missing FAT32 ascii modules should now be fixed.
-Virtualbox Guest Additions will now be automatically removed on Non-Virtualbox installs.
-Cinelerra 5.1 (aka Cin) has a new functionality to support LV2 Audio Plugins (initial release, may require restart on first run).
-LSP Plugins are updated to 1.1.2
-Cleaned up wrong menu entry of ZynAddSubFX JACK multi
-Updated relevant info in the AV Linux User Manual.

A huge thanks to korakios for the work on UEFI improvements and trulan for the updated 4.16 kernels, thanks also to those who provided bug reports and tested ISOs, your time is very much appreciated!

The linuxaudio.org mirror is up and running, Bytemark will come online sometime in the next few days.

Happy birthday Glen! And thanks for all your continuous efforts and work with AVLinux.

I've looked at your last version in a Virtualbox, and it's cool. Only when trying to boot the live image from a USB stick it was missing some other /dev/sda (or other, forgot) drives/devices.

Anyway, thanks again, and celebrate it man!

Cheers,
Wolfgang

Since this great distro is what allowed me to make it, and in an attempt to give back (late birthday present if you like it):

I hope nobody minds a bit of crosslinking, it just happens so that this fits into several places. Basically, a Carla session with lots of plugins that should work out of the box under 64 bit 2018 AVLinux (and may or may not be portable), showcasing the GxTuner plugin's capability of performing monophonic note-to-MIDI conversion. It is an intelligent setup where with one guitar, you can trigger a bass accompainment, will hear arpeggios related to what you play, all the while hearing a drum loop, and can solo over this, your guitar being doubled by a synth. Lots of room for customizing.

since this was made with the April edition, there is a minimal chance for breakage, e.g. LSP plugins have been updated, I've seen.
