Lightbulb Studioware


http://www.studioware.org/

Something a few of us have been working on. It was StudioS and is now under a new name.

Quote:
Studioware is a project aimed at providing build scripts and packages of the best open source music and audio editing software available for Slackware Linux.
We also include libraries and other dependencies with a comprehensive dependency list for each package so you will know exactly what you need to install.
Although Studioware is quite a small project, we are Slackware users of many years experience and intend to share our experiences of building and running the software on the wiki. Most of us are musicians too.
Applications list: http://www.studioware.org/wiki/index...plication_List

We would welcome suggestions for good audio/music recording/mixing apps to add to our repo. We don't have a submission system like slackbuilds.org, but if you have a slackbuild you think we need you can contact us. We have a wiki setup which is rather bare at the moment. Anyone that wants to make a page of a howto etc is welcome. You will need to register as we've had a few problems with spammers.

Contact details:

james (at) studioware.org
sero (at) studioware.org
dave (at) studioware.org
or through the mailing list, IRC, etc.

That looks pretty slick. I tried UbuntuStudio long ago, but it just didn't feel right. Definitely going to give this a try.

Just a word on the tools studiopkg and sepkg.

studiopkg installs/upgrades prebuilt binary packages (think slackpkg)
sepkg builds/installs from source (think sbopkg)

Both these tools are pretty new and are in no way as sophisticated as slackpkg and sbopkg, but features will be added and bugs ironed out when they are found.

We also have a git repo on github here: https://github.com/eviljames/studioware

I'm a little bit confused here Dive. I just type in "sepkg -b Mixxx" and all I got is:

/usr/sbin/sepkg: line 218: Mixxx: command not found

Fixed.

If you run sepkg -l and follow the prompts it will grab the latest version.

This is sooooooo cooooool !. I can see it's early days on your website and wiki - but one of the first things you absolutely must document is how to get a really nice low-latency setup going. Otherwise, congrats ! This is going to be really useful.

Regarding that, the slackbuilds for anything that needs realtime have a setcap command in doinst.sh, like this one for jack:

Code:
if [ -x /sbin/setcap ]; then
    /sbin/setcap cap_ipc_lock,cap_sys_nice=ep usr/bin/jackd
fi
This seems to work quite well but is probably not a real substitute for a patched kernel with realtime preemption. Recent patches haven't been working very well but I'll definitely have another look at doing some real time kernels again soon.

For now we have a generic one that eviljames made for x86:

A very nice project. Congratulations! Yes, there is a need for multimedia focus because a lot of us are creative types
