I've notice this. Mmh how do you get a qtractor project exported to a soundfile then? :/

falkTX,

I'm the maintainer of AV Linux, since there is so much noise about Lucid I thought I'd better check it out. I installed it in VBox and added the -rt Kernel, medibuntu and your repo...DONE!

This is an uprecedented collection of current Audio apps in a single repo, great work, I wish you all the success with your KXStudio, you are correct that KDE is not represented with a good Multimedia specific version so that is a niche to be filled. I think there is room for everyone and of course I believe AV Linux also has a place.

As someone who knows how much work this takes I just had to say what a great job you're doing! I look forward to seeing an official KXStudio announcement soon.

Congratulations for this excellent PPA.

I think there is a bug in eq10q-lv2 package. It doesn't install anything. I'm using a 64 bit system.

Hi falkTX,

A note of criticism from my side, my apologies beforehand :(
I wanted to backport some of your packages for my Karmic PPA. But your just so far from being meticulous that I have to refrain from backporting anything because it will take me so much time to take care of all the lintian warnings :(
Directories containing .svn and .git control directories, maintainer name errors, copyright errors etc., stuff like that. Nothing really seriously wrong but to me as a "mierenneuker" (nitpicker) it all seems so sloppy.
My apologies again for criticising your hard work but I had to get this off my chest.

Best,

Jeremy

Hello falkTX, I understand the way you work. But take my rambling as constructive criticism, it's not my intention to turn down your hard and good work! We both do things differently, nothing wrong with that.
falkTX wrote:I think that the debian policy has too many rules... (have you look at a "debian/rules" for Fedora or ArchLinux?)
Yes I have, I backported some stuff for my Fedora machines at work so I know how to package RPM's and to what rules they have to comply (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_c ... _and_rules). I agree that packaging for Fedora is more straightforward.
falkTX wrote:I'm sorry if my packages aren't the best ones around, but I honestly don't care, cause the users don't care about the copyright/lintian stuff, they just want it to work.
I'm far from a good packager either, I just package the stuff I need and am not claiming anything either. But those packaging rules and guidelines don't exist for nothing, but that's another discussion, one we shouldn't keep here.

Best,

Jeremy

Some questions about wine with the realtime patch from you ppa - On your website you say "run wine with the prefix "WINERT=10" (or similar)". What exactly is the number 10 indicating? What type of numbers can we be using there? And when you say "prefix" does it mean a command line like 'wine WINERT=10 reaper.exe', i.e. how exactly does the syntax go?

Thanks,

Eric

I have not tried it myself but I suppose the number goes from 0 to 100 (RT watchdog being at 99 usually, jack somewhere between 10 and 70, etc).

As to the WINERT, it looks like a environment variable, so you would need to set it before calling wine:

Code: Select all

WINERT=10 wine blabla.exe
or you can have it in some login / shell init script
bash:

Code: Select all

export WINERT=10
csh family

Code: Select all

setenv WINERT 10
mind you, any wine app using RT SCHED_FIFO threads would then use this scheduling priority level.

-20 to 19 sounds more like the so-called 'nice' value range. WINERT as a variable defined for RT scheduling looks more like the SCHED_FIFO priority level (0 to 100). But better check than not :)

Because I recently switched my PC at work from Fedora to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx I also started packaging for Lucid.

Hi Guys

A old friend of my comes for a visit at my home, indeed he is a musician to, he was on the search for a decent Guitar amp for live purpose, play Acoustic Guitar together with a Piano, but he was unhappy about what he found. I told him about Linux audio and what it possible with that, he wone get it.
So I install ubuntu10.4 on his (old PIIII) Laptop and add your ppa's to Synaptic. Run a update and a upgrade, set permissions and were done. He use a Tascam 122 for Guitar input, so I add a ~/.asoundrc, connect every thing , plug in the guitar and go.
He was surprised by the sound witch was now possible, and also surprised by the DAW's, Synths and Virtual Keybords,. . . .

All this need to be done fast, so "thanks for your ppa's" , this way it was just to easy to setup a Pro Audio Studio :)

I have tried to add this repository to a machine with Ubuntu Maverick and there are some dependencies problems with Lucid PPA. There are plans to make a Maverick falk PPA repository?

Hi falktx.

There seems to be a problem with Hydrogen and the version of liblash that your ppa proviodes. When I try to run Hydrogen, I get this:

Code: Select all

hydrogen: error while loading shared libraries: liblash.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I actually have liblash installed from your ppa. I believe there's a problem with the symlink to liblash. Right now, the solution seems to be reverting to the liblash version on Ubuntu's repo, or fixing the symlink, according to this source: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.audio.users/70311. To fix the symlink, I just issued the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/liblash.so.1.1.1 /usr/lib/liblash.so.2
That seems to correct the problem. Could you take a look at that, and fix the symlink creation? Thanks.

Hi, i solved the issue as you and emailed falk. He did update the repo but i can't run hydrogen even after the correction (i replaced the simlink etc). Does your hydrogen start?
He had a lot of nithing to say, we'll miss him
