Where are LibraZik and AVLinux repositories for use in Debian/Ubuntu PC?

What other apps and distros do you use to round out your studio?

Where are LibraZik and AVLinux repositories for use in Debian/Ubuntu PC?

Post by digitsun »

I've found some linux native plugins and looked that they're in LibraZik or AVLinux repositories. I've tried to locate that info for include it in my source list (now I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) but I couldn't. I have two questions:

(1) Where are LibraZik and AVLinux repositories for use in Debian/Ubuntu PC?

and

(2) Can I use LibraZik and AVLinux repositories for use in Debian/Ubuntu PC?

I don't knowabout AVLinux, but for LibraZik, there are only 2 ways of installing it ( https://librazik.tuxfamily.org/base-sit ... hp#install )
from a Debian (Buster) base, or using a live. There is no mention about a Ubuntu base.

Hi!

AV Linux has moved to MX Linux and is now AVL-MXE (or AV Linux MX Edition)..

AVL-MXE has only it's own Kernel repository and relies on KX Studio and MX for most other apps from their repositories. The AVL-MXE User Tools and a small handful of other packages are currently not available in repositories and are part of the ISO image when you install AVL-MXE. As a one-person project for the most part this is how things seem to work best for me.

@digitsun

apt-cdrom add may work with fancy CD/DVD drives.
https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList#CD-ROM
https://manpages.debian.org/stretch/apt ... .8.en.html

If you want to use the iso instead, mount it and tell sources.list to use and trust it:

Code: Select all

deb [trusted=yes] file:///media/avlinux-iso-mount/ 
I'd expect both LibraZik and AVLinux isos can be added to any debian in that way, not sure about Ubuntu, though that's debian based as well.

That's sound like voodoo for me but maybe works, interesting. Thanks.

Not that voodoo really if you think about it

Minor (allright, perhaps major) clever voodoo is involved in packaging all the apps inside a distro iso file you download. I don't know how that's done but I think it's the same procedure as when you connect to a online software center app to install something new. The new app you choose is packaged and compressed, you download the package and your OS knows how to decompress and install.

A distro iso file like http://download.linuxaudio.org/avlinux/ ... -amd64.iso is compressed as well and contains thousands of packages. You 'burn it' to a physical disk, typically a USB disk and boot the disk which decompresses all system files baked into the iso and mount them read-only.

Code: Select all

deb [trusted=yes] file:///media/avlinux-iso-mount/ 
is debian/ubuntu OS speak for :
when you check for new updates and software, please also include the avlinux-iso file mounted at /media/avlinux-iso-mount and make it available to my system.

I got into it because I was offline for a while and couldn't connect to apt or any other repo whenever needed. To remedy that I first downloaded some debian dvd isos and created a custom iso file from scratch with https://fai-project.org/FAIme. With FAIme you can just list any package you want included in the iso.

It worked fine for building 'my own distro' from scratch. Note however that when mixing sources like this things can easily brake because of conflicting versions and dependencies.

I suggest you mention which plugins you wish to install and someone may point you to a place from which you can install them. The likely source for most of them would be KX Studio repositories or your distro repo.
Pretty sure you can't just mount the AVL-MXE .iso as suggested - it's a live image so its applications are already installed.
