...thank you both for your instant answers. I have tryed to boot from my self-burnt UbuntuStudio DVD, and it installed something that I couldn't start later on.
(Virtual Box / Windows/or UBUNTU on Mac !!!)
But also directly from disk to Mac it also wanted to install !!! But didn't work out well !!
(I have to admit: I only tried next to my job and couldn't invest much time for it yet!!!)
So maybe I'll try the dreamstudio (where I took the "guided Tour")
If I could I'd compile my own thing, but I lack the experience. AND it must run on any PC or MAC !!
Or better it should !!
Well we'll see and hear. thanx again, looking forward to experience more !!
Once again (WIN) guyz: don't waste your time here, just switch to Traverso !
@forart.it: if you continue our forums in this way, I will delete your messages. You are off-topic, and have been quite rude about this in the past. Traverso is a fine project, and I have no wish to create any negative ideas about it, but it is not and probably will not for quite a long time a substitute for Ardour (or any other existing DAW).
ficheland: UbuntuStudio doesn't run as a liveCD, meaning that you must install it before you can try it (which, as you've seen, can be a problem if you then can't figure out how to start it.). This is one of the big differences between UbuntuStudio and Dream Studio. In order to use the latter, just insert the DVD, boot it the same way you did with UbuntuStudio, and you can use the whole system right from the CD without installing it to a hard drive, all BEFORE you're forced to install.
AVLinux will do the same, but in the event that you do install either one, you'll find more support for Dream Studio in the ubuntuforums (ubuntuforums.org), which will apply to Dream Studio (and UbuntuStudio for that matter) because it's based on Ubuntu. Note that the advice you'd find in those forums MAY apply to AVLInux, but it also may not. Nonetheless, GMaq (AVLinux's creator) is a really smart and helpful guy, so if you do decide on AVLinux I'm sure he can answer most of your questions. Both AVLinux and Dream Studio have their own dedicated forums as well, and if you use Dream Studio, you'll also find tons of handy tips in the Ubuntu Manual (ubuntu-manual.org).
