I have recently gone through the pain of relocating countries, setting
up new workstations etc. and would love to have all the packages I use
sitting in Fedora. As a result I've packaged a few things which I use
What is the status of the Fedora Audio SIG? After going through this
myself I am keen to resurrect the idea of a Fedora Studio. We could even
make it a feature of Fedora 17.
We would probably need to coordinate from planetccrma what desperately
needs to be in mainline Fedora and any other packages which are missing.
If there is anything you would like packaged which is not let me know.
In the meantime there is a new packages that have hit Fedora 16 (at
.least) in the last month or so.
zita-at1 - Fons' auto-tuner
zita-rev1 - Reverb from Fons
phat - GTK toolkit for audio software, was in planetccrma, depandancy of
specimen. New project coming soon to Fedora petri-foo, which
replaces/inherits specimen (currently FTBS in planet)
clxclient - dependancy of zita*, previously in planetccrma*
I also have a couple of lv2 plugins awaiting review here .
Also thinking of packaging Neil, although this will probably need to
reside in rpmfusion
Freenode: bsjones (not often but will lurk in #fedora-audio,
#opensourcemusicians for a bit)
Some of you may have seen my recent posts about my desire to actualise
some kind of Fedora Audio spin.
I think the first step in this process is to determine what software
Fedora Audio users are using on a regular basis.
Once we have this we can determine a usable subset of audio packages
that can form the basis of a yum group. Whilst we can garner a lot of
the information from .desktop files and the work of the multimedia menus
package, I think it is important to find the lowest common subset of
So what I propose is a poll!
Firstly, list your name , DE, (XFCE/KDEGNOME/LXDE/OpenBox/..etc) then
with a list of packages that you regularly use, in descending order of
importance. Please specify where you obtained the package if not in
Don't be afraid to repeat what others have posted, that way I can gauge
This data can then be used to come up with a minimal subset of Fedora
audio packages that we can lump together in a yum group.
So, Merry Xmas! And I look forward to seeing everyone's replies!

Thanks for the info - awesome stuff.
Just a few questions. 1. There's no reason why these scripts cannot run
with 0.9.2 right?
2. what version of jackd are you using - from the repos? or have you
compiled your own with DBUS support? (jackdbus only just hit f16
recently and you are using f15)
As for your question about a2jmidid I just pkill it also.
Another script I use in f16 that I put in my path is this: (the $1
parameter is either start or stop. pre|post in yr examples). I'm a
developer so most people won't be using a lot of these services anyway,
but you can tailor it for your needs:
fedora16:~ $ cat ~/bin/audio_services
beesu systemctl $1 nfs-idmap.service nfs-lock.service ksm.service
ksmtuned.service abrtd.service cups.socket cups.service
sm-client.service sendmail.service ntpd.service mysqld.service
httpd.service libvirtd.service crond.service sshd.service smb.service
if [ $1 == "stop" ]
then beesu modprobe -r ath9k
else beesu modprobe ath9k;
Cross posting to Fedora-music also as I think this is of keen interest
Due to upstream author Joerg Anders having discontinued development of
upstream nted, I have retired the "nted" package from Fedora starting in
The existing nted-1.10.18 packages will remain in F-15 and F-16 until
the end of life of the respective Fedora release, or until the nted
package stops building/working - whatever happens earlier.

Just a friendly reminder that JANUARY 11 is the deadline for all
submissions to the Linux Audio Conference (LAC 2012), which will take
place at CCRMA (Stanford, California) in April 2012!
Santa LACus wishes a great paper-and-music-submitting holiday to all!

LAC 2012: the Linux Audio Conference - Call for Participation
April 12-15, 2012 @ CCRMA, Stanford University
[Apologies for cross-postings] [Please distribute]
Online submission of papers, music, installations and workshops is now
open! On the website you will find up-to-date instructions, as well as
important information about deadlines, travel, lodging, and so on. Read
on for more details!
We invite submissions of papers addressing all areas of audio processing
based on Linux and open source software. Papers can focus on technical,
artistic or scientific issues and can target developers or users. We are
also looking for music that has been produced or composed entirely or
mostly using Linux and other Open Source music software.
The Deadline for all submissions is January 11th, 2012
The Linux Audio Conference (LAC) is an international conference that
brings together musicians, sound artists, software developers and
researchers, working with Linux as an open, stable, professional
platform for audio and media research and music production. LAC includes
paper sessions, workshops, and a diverse program of electronic music.
The upcoming 2012 conference will be hosted at CCRMA, Stanford
University, on April 12-15. The Center for Computer Research in Music
and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University is a multi-disciplinary
facility where composers and researchers work together using
computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research
tool. CCRMA has been using and developing Linux as an audio platform
Stanford University is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, about one
hour south of San Francisco, California. This is the first time LAC will
take place in the United States.
We look forward to seeing you at Stanford in April!
