Hi folks.

I just installed a Linux MINT6, it is based on Ubuntu 8.10. Some time ago somebody brought it up over here.

The community acceptance is quite high. On distrowatch.com they are already on rank 3, right after Ubuntu and Suse.

No wonder why. Look and feel is really nice.

To me it looks much more professional (serious) then a stock Ubuntu. Under the hood you'll find of course the same stuff as you'd find it in Ubuntu.

rt-kernel is also available.

If you look for a new fresh look and feel - give it a try.


Cheers

I have problems with my real time ubuntu studio installation. (8.04) When running mpd in real time mode, the main terminal gets flooded with error warnings, and the audio has a lot of dropouts and sounds bad. Plus, as already mentioned, I can't play radiostreams, but this is probably another problem.

This is not the worlds cutest error description, but maybe someone has an idea?

You should think about upgrading to 8.10. Makes life easier.

I'm not familiar with the upgrading process. Do you think, it will solve my problems? Will the upgrade leave newer software releases intact (mpd, alsa, sox etc.pp.)? Will I have to reconfigure my network (vncserver, samba etc.)?

Will it leave the customizing intact? (No xwindow at startup, for instance)

It was a whole lot of work to set it up. Plug & Swear!

Usually the upgrade is easy going.

However:

Make yourself familiar with the backup and restore routine before you start your upgrade. This is for sure more complex and risky then the upgrade itself.

Onvinyl,

please elaborate more. What error messages are you getting? What is your soundcard? What are your PC parameters? What is your audio usage scenario (playback or recording/mastering too)?

I have experienced problems with sound drivers/hardware behaving differently in the ubuntu studio RT kernel compared to the generic kernel in the same ubuntu version. Unless really needing low latency, I personally would not use it. I am writing this on ubuntu studio with the generic kernel.

Hi folks.

I lust started up an Ecasound Wiki.

http://www.diyaudio.com/wiki/index.p...Audio+Ecasound

I try to avoid redundant information. You'll find plenty of stuff and examples on the ecasound homepages or manpages.

For now I outline how to compile it from sources, how to get it to work with MPD
and how to get it remote controlled e.g. volume control via TCP and netcat.

Cheers
