Am I right to think that F10 is in a bad way when it comes to music
Reading around, it sounds like good things nearly happened, and the whole
of CCRMA nearly made it into this new Fedora Unity thing.
On the face of it, that'd be great, and I could install my RT kernel,
FFADO, Jackd, and Hydrogen/Ardour easily.
It sounds like the RT patches aren't maintained though, is this right?
This pretty much shafts the whole of music production on Linux doesn't
it? Won't new versions of Ubuntu and everything else be screwed over by
I'm feeling really let down by this. I can go back to F9, but what a
faff. I thought if I waited a while after release, all would be well.
And what about when F9 stops getting security updates?
Any news on the state of play, and whether its likely to change would be
I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Orcan Ogetbil. I am a
theoretical physicist, recently graduated from Penn State University.
I have been using Redhat Linux/Fedora since Redhat 7.2 . I play mainly
bass, also guitar and some percussion and I compose in my free time.
Here you can find some of my work (sorry, mp3 only):
I have been using ardour+hydrogen quite extensively (the above work is
done entirely with these applications) and PlanetCCRMA has been one of
my most frequent stops to obtain kernel-rt and audio applications.
I recently started packaging for Fedora. My packages include
tuxguitar, hydrogen-drumkits, TSE3, musixtex, kguitar; where the last
two are awaiting review. Until today, I wasn't aware of the existence
of such a SIG. Actually, I was thinking of starting such a SIG lately.
It looks like I am a little late. Very well...
Before sending this email, I did some work on the wiki, mainly created
some tables to ease the categorization of sound applications. I will
work on it more, but it will make things a lot easier for me if
everybody adds his/her audio application to the relevant table.
Also, if you have an audio creation application awaiting a review,
please put it on the second table. It will attract more attention and
this way we can get our applications faster into Fedora.
I will add to the wishlist in the following days as I made a list of
interesting audio applications that would be good to include in
Please feel free to modify/add to/improve/undo what I did in the wiki.
Hi, I made an SRPM with a recent hydrogen svn checkout. Hydrogen is
now ported to qt4 and has quite nice new features. Here you can find
the SRPM if you want to try it out:
I am still working on this together with the upstream. Since the
application looks quite stable and works fine, I wanted to submit this
to rawhide and F-10 testing (I'm sure, quite a lot of users will be
interested in this). I became a co-maintainer of hydrogen through
pkgdb but since the package building scheme changed a lot (to scons) I
didn't want to do this without the approval of the primary maintainer,
Anthony Green. I sent an email to him last week about this but I
didn't get a reply. Does anyone know of his whereabouts? I don't know
him very well, he doesn't come to IRC. Would he mind if I update
hydrogen in rawhide and F-10 testing?
