AV Linux 2.0 Released!
For those interested AV Linux 2.0 has been released, As usual on the Audio side it is centred around our beloved Ardour. The Ardour package included is the Linux version 2.8 with LV2, FREESOUND and FFT_Analysis. After two months of testing the new ArdourVST I wasn't confident that it was the best candidate to introduce to new users due to ongoing stability issues. In order to please everyone AV Linux 2.0 comes with an alternate ArdourVST 2.8 Package in the "Audio Extras" folder found in the user's Home folder. Note that the Ardour.desktop launcher in /usr/share/applications/ has to be changed from "Exec=ardour2" to "Exec=ardourvst" to use the existing launcher
The Audio Extras folder also contains 2 -rt Kernel Packages:
2.6.29-rt1 for normal i386 systems with 4 Gig of RAM or less...OR
188.8.131.52-rt9 highmem64 PAE for i386 systems with more than 4 Gig of RAM up to 64 Gig
Easier name: AV Linux instead of A/V Linux
Goodbye Ubuntu and Gnome... Hello Debian and LXDE, This Desktop is up and running in about 80mb of RAM on my machine.
