A/V Linux 1.0 with Ardour 2.7.1 and much more ready to use!
I have just released a Linux "Snapshot" that is an A/V Centric i386 OS based on a much modified and updated Ubuntu 7.10. It features Ardour 2.7.1 SVN4343 with LV2, FREESOUND, FFT_Analysis, and VST Support via DSSI-VST with the VST Path already configured. All development libraries are included with Web page links to Steinberg's SDK site and the Ardour build page if users want to build ArdourVST. WINE 0.9.52 is included for best VST performance and Window Rendering in ArdourVST. Other audio apps include Audacity 1.3.6, Hydrogen 0.9.4SVN, Rosegarden 1.7.2, Calf Plugin Pack 0.0.17, QSynth 0.3.3 and many more...
A Realtime Kernel is only a repository click away and the system is pre-configured with the PAM mods and an rtirq script as well as a symlinked VST folder in the user home directory.
There is much more detailed info available on the Web page,
IMPORTANT: If you have a look and decide to install, the name "pcuser" should be used for the initial user so that all the tweaks, symlinks, and plugin paths work correctly. Of course use a secure password of your own choosing and you can create additional users post-install if you like.
