Best, & stay safe,
CCRMA is seeking a Systems Administrator. The Systems Administrator
will work under general supervision of the Academic Technology
Specialist to install, configure, document, optimize, and maintain
integrity of servers and the desktop audio/video environment at CCRMA.
This includes building and installing hardware and performing upgrades
for servers and workstations, as well as providing consultation,
advice, and training for CCRMA's diverse community of artists and
researchers. The successful candidate will be able to learn from
example; understand, question, and critique existing and proposed
methods; imagine and reimagine boldly; experiment freely; test
carefully; and upgrade supported facilities cautiously and frequently.
Attention to detail, interest in understanding why something does or
doesn’t work, and self-initiative within teamwork are essential.
Communication should be accurate, detailed, pertinent, timely, and
respectful. Applicants should have a strong intuitive grasp of digital
and analog audio concepts and systems. In keeping with the spirit of
the center, creatively-inclined engineers are encouraged to apply.

I am hoping the Fedora maintainer of Carla is on this list. Carla is not
showing up in GNOME Software as available to install since the Fedora
package does not container the needed metadata to display it there. It
should be fairly simple to fix, in fact I think this 2013 blog post from
Richard Hughes explaining what is needed is still correct:
It is basically ensuring the .desktop file has the correct metadata and

This is a strange problem. I record a video with audio using guvcview
and when I play it back there is no audio (video is fine). However, if
I playback a video I created with guvcview under Fedora 33 the audio is
guvcview with every combination of audio codec and audio device (both
from my web cam and from my MOTU audio interface.)
gucview audio level bars (overlaid on video display) indicate audio is
being received during recording
Playback: VLC and Dolphin. If I play an older Fedora 33 video vlc shows
up in carla correctly, if I then try to play a new Fedora 34 video it

Since upgrading to Ardour 6.7 I noticed that when Ardour 6.7 crashes
(due to bad plugins) Fedora no longer captures the crash and presents
the Report dialog window.
I don't know if this is due to a recent Fedora system update, or a new
bug. I did notice that the crash reporting system was working
differently within the last week or two ("crash reported but issue not
created with Bugzilla").
