I've been spending a lot of time on the #opensourcemusicians channel
talking to Ubuntu Studio users about their kernel and latency times they're
getting. Seems like most of them are using g a stock kernel with the
preemptive option enabled and they are getting great latency results
(2ms)while utilizing the @audio group on their user. I ended up compiling
my own low latency kernel and I haven't had any issues with it yet. If this
is what we are missing for the spin I'd be happy to maintain packaging for
the kernel. I know ccrma has been behind a few kernel releases.
I saw the instructions for adding the real time patch for a tick less
kernel and from what I can tell it wouldn't be hard to get that rolling as
I'm not entirely sure what ccrma does differently with their kernels
compared to other Linux users, and I'm still a bit of a noob so I could be
off base with this, but I would reason that we should be able to just
utilize the same settings to archive similar performance enhancements.
I thought I read that ccrma uses a unique scheduler, but if we could get a
2ms latency time without it, the point may be moot.
I have a little E350 'net-top' computer running fedora 20-i686 with default
gnome, xfce, and most of the music packages from f20 and PlanetCCRMA, that
I will be using at the fedora booth at LFNW.
How can I add all the Jam-KDE packages?
I can't find instructions on the wiki and can't find jam with software or
yum (except backgrounds).
Since my focus will be music, I might as well show off the Spin.
I will be giving a talk, "PD - Programming for Artist"
and the OLPCs will be showing off tam-tam.
