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)

Open Octave uses the new LV2 stack (Lilv, sord, suil, and serd), none of
which have been packaged yet (I'm doing them at the moment and shouldn't
be too far off). When these are complete I can have a look at Open Octave.
You probably already know that this is a fork of Rosegarden which we do
have in the repos.
I stumbled over this some weeks ago: http://www.openoctave.org/ . I think it
looks very interesting and I definitely need to give it a try, but I failed
miserably at building it.
I contacted Thomas Moschny to ask if maybe he could do a package for it, but he
has no time for it and suggested that I could try this list.
Is there anyone who build it already and give me some instructions, or even
provide a package?
That would be so awesome!
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!
For the packagers on this list I am awaiting peer review on the following:
lv2-ams-plugins - LV2 port of the Alsa Modular Synth modules
lv2-kn0ck0ut - An LV2 spectral subtraction plugin (linux audio)
lv2-abGate - an LV2 Noise Gate plugin
I've knocked one of my list but the 3 above are still outstanding. lv2
plugins are REALLY easy to review. 2 for one offer still stands, and
I have many others ready to package.
Also the lv2 spec has recently been updated. Some changes will affect
all lv2 packages. There is also a lot of lv2 development stuff which has
not been packaged, which should. If I could draw everyone's attention to
this bug coordinating the upgrade:
There are some exciting ports coming to LV2 (in adition to the above)
which we really need to include in Fedora.
Be nice if all of this could be done pre-branch
Thanks for the tip.
Happy new year, Simon

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
