AV Linux 6.0.1 Released....Finally!!
« on: June 04, 2013, 08:51:19 PM »
AV Linux 6.0.1 Released!

Out of the uncertainty of the successful AV Linux 6.0 release an unexpected 6.0.1 update has arrived. What began as a minor update to bring a few bug fixes and fresh releases of Ardour 3 and Kdenlive to the ISO has ballooned into a major update encompassing many of the main applications and bringing the best of what is new and happening to Linux Audio and Video enthusiasts.

Thanks to: Tony Brijeski (Remastersys), Trulan Martin (AV Linux Kernels), Allen Tate (Torrents), Ed Diehl, soppel, anahata, totalchaos, and RickBrock for help with the ISO pre-testing

User Manual Here: http://bandshed.net/pdf/AV601Manual.pdf
AV Linux EULI Here: http://bandshed.net/pdf/avlinuxeuli.pdf
Release Notes Here: http://bandshed.net/pdf/av6releasenotes.pdf

**PLEASE NOTE**

An updated AV Linux '6.0.1B' ISO has been uploaded with a few changes, fixes, and updates most notably the hotfixed 2.3.1 version of the Mixbus demo. If you are using AV Linux as a Live system only you will have to download the updated DVD ISO image to get all the changes, however if you have already installed AV Linux 6.0.1 to your hard drive don't fear, just read the 6.0.1B Addendum to the changelog below with links to the updated packages. Please note Ardour 3.2 was released today at the time of this writing, the Ardour 3.1-134 GIT builds on AV Linux 6.0.1B are only a few commits different than the official Ardour 3.2 release.

Please watch the release screencast, the first 10 minutes covers general Desktop features and after that I get to the good stuff including a running Ardour 3.1 Session.

Re: ATI
I'm not sure if this is relevant to your footnote about ATI drivers, but I think my system has an ATI graphics card and AVL 6.0.1 installed and ran without any graphics problems. However my hardware may not be of a type affected by the problem described. Is there anything I can check that would be helpful?

The problem isn't that ATi video cards don't work, it's that ATi's proprietary drivers don't currently seem to install properly using our normal methods.  By default, you'll be using the open source radeon video drivers.  They will work fine on most systems.  The proprietary drivers (also known as Catalyst or fglrx) are needed for some hardware, and they are also often helpful with 3d acceleration and when using dual monitor setups, things like that.  If your system is working to your satisfaction, I'd recommend keeping it as it is.

The problem is in the process of being fixed by the (very frustrated) sgfxi dev.

 :yahoo: Hey Gmaq, Trulan, you guys rock!

I have been waiting for something like this for years. It just works, you guys did a fantastic job.

I have a Lenovo i7 laptop that I bought last year, so would only work properly with a kernel newer than 3.2.0. As a result I was forced to use KxStudio with the realtime kernel. Even this would occasionally freeze though.  Avlinux 6.0 would boot most times, but the jack performance on my machine was simply sub standard, so could never really use it seriously. I use Pianoteq as my primary instrument, which requires a fairly stable jack setup, so 6.0 would regularly throw xruns when it decided to boot.

Bring 6.01 - different story. The kernel is fantastic. Solid as a rock. On Kxstudio with the 3.2 realtime kernel I could run stable down to 48KHz at 128 frames (I use a Mackie Blackjack USB 1.0 interface) which gave a pretty usable latency, but the Windows driver would go down to 64 frames, although with a bit of tweaking. Avlinux 6.01 runs beautifully at 64 frames. Open pianoteq and Ardour3 connect record - not one xrun.

I have a simple test to see how stable the jack setup is. I open Pianoteq, hold the sustain pedal down, turn the volume down , and run the mouse up and down the keys to see how many keys can play simultaneously without jack conking out. If jack is substandard, it conks out at about 70 sustained notes. Avlinux on this laptop - I stop at 256 notes, from a sore wrist.  Yes it is an i7 but the kernel has to be able to handle it requiring the realtime patch. Avlinux 6.01 is a beauty. This is what I have been waiting for.

Well done guys! :howdy:

Hi

Congratulations,  :howdy:

It's nice that you decide to go on with AVLinux and keep "THE ONE" debian based Multi-Media Distro on the road and puzzle all the small pieces together into a great frame.

Nice, impressive Video as well.

Hi,

@durfnap

Thanks very much for your support! The MLT version on the LiveDVD is 0.8.8. I wasn't aware 0.9.0 was out (it's hard to be everywhere at the same time  :))

@Kimble

Thanks, Glad to hear you are getting good performance..

@brummer

Thanks for all your help and the last minute patches, the new Guitarix LV2's are awesome! Great work!

Congratulations,

I'd installed avl 6.0.1 and could make ati drivers working, installed by using the "sgfxi" command at boot as root. Now i've my two screens co-operating!  :yahoo:

I'm really digging 6.0.1. I might be imagining things, but it feels like my computer is running faster and smoother after installing it. I really like the themes, new wallpapers, conky, Wbar on the side (except the text only shows up halfway, but not a big problem). JALV Launcher is my favorite new app so far (haven't yet explored all of them). Minicomputer unfortunately has no audio outputs in jack....dunno what needs to happen to fix that. Other than that, I'm really happy with 6.0.1. Awesome work Gmaq.

That's good to hear!  Though the person responsible for getting the ATi drivers working again is 'techAdmin' from the sgfxi/smxi forums:
http://techpatterns.com/forums/about2297.html

@GMaq: You can delete the ATi notice / warning from the OP if you want.

@Kimble: While we do our best to deliver optimum performance, I have a hard time believing that AV Linux is THAT good.  Or should I say that much better than KX Studio?  I'm just curious here, did you ever try running Jack in synchronous mode in KX Studio?  (adding the '-S' switch to the Jack command line).  KX Studio uses Jack2, and back in the day when I was a Ubuntu user I found I was able to get lower latencies on Jack2 that way.  AV Linux uses Jack1 which is always in synchronous mode.

I've installed this on an old eMachine from 2000, an Averatec 2200 series laptop from 2004, and a quad-core HP desktop and it FLIES on all of them! No problems anywhere, and my licensed version of MixBus is very, very happy on the HP (I cannot believe how fast everything runs on that quadcore!)

This is such a sophisticated distro - so many thanks! You've supplied me with a distro that also has made working on the old machines fun again (had no network problems whatsoever, YouTube plays great, Skype works great, Libre Writer is a very welcome inclusion!)

At last these older computers of mine are useful again. Thank you so much! This version of AVLinux is out-performing all the others, and is definitely my gold standard OS now. What supreme wizardry!  :wizard:

I have posted my experiences with 6.01 in the thread

My experience with AV Linux 6.01 so far...

My system specs are in the Sig.

But I DO have to ask if your great track that you used in the 6.01 video is included somewhere on the DVD, I would LOVE to play around with that!!  ;)

Great Job!  :cool:

Hi,

Well I'm certainly no wizard but I am so glad to hear that! Older machines should be productive not poisoning people in tech dumps  :angry:

I totally agree with you on that point! I've been refurbishing computers and giving them to handicapped and elderly to "bridge the digital divide" since 1997 (135 machines so far, originally "modernizing" 286 and 386 machines, then the real glory days with the 486. I still have a Windows 98 machine running the Sounddiver patch librarian and Opcode Midi-8 interface in my studio - and it runs Cakewalk 9 and Samplitude still just fine! Instant boot-up and shut down on those older machines!)

Even the oldest machines had their utility. It is crazy to keep throwing stuff into the landfills as if their chemicals will just "go-away" and not poison our aquifers and rivers down the road.

Thanks for putting another tool out there that allows us to keep these machines running! (About to put it on an old Thinkpad from 1998 to replace Windows 2000 on that...)

Hmm... I've Lubuntu on an old Thinkpad; I wonder how well AV Linux would work instead. No intention of using it for audio and video stuff, but it might give good general system performance anyway.

@timur

LiVES was not included on the AV Linux 6.0.1 LiveDVD because the last 3 versions had repeated build issues and the developer indicated he was moving on and favoring GTK3. You are welcome to use the last version that built correctly from the AV Linux Packages FTP here: http://bandshed.net/avlinux6-debs/lives/lives_1.8.0avlinux6-1_i386.deb

@marc

Thanks!, welcome to the forum

@terrybritton

Keep up the great work with the refurbishing, what a great idea for helping the elderly.  :cool: I totally agree that older computers have numerous ways to remain productive 'appliances'. I also had a killer studio setup on Windows 98 back in the late 90's, If I could go back in time I would have just left it alone as it was instead of letting XP ruin it all... but then I suppose I never would have discovered Linux...

And you just missed Ardour 3.2 !

But that was always going to be a moving target.

Hi anahata,

 :rolleyes: Yep... but truthfully those updated Ardour builds are from GIT just a few days ago and have all of the important changes since 3.1.10 anyway except the new version number.

I am having a SWAP issure.  Seems that when I create the swap (before main ext4 or after).. al;so rebooted then tried again.. still nothing found, no swap.  So install stops.

Is there a command like .avinstall --nosawp ?  or something like that?  I have a laptop using a 128 GB SSD with 16 gb ram... dont really need a swap I believe....

Got it to install.  Dont really have an answer to how ... I installed ubuntustudio then it saw the swap.  But it works now so all is good.

3.6.11.2 Kernel with Yamaha THR-10 patches and USB-2 Audio clock switching patch
What are the functions and features are added using these patches?

 In the repository is CinHV-4.4-quicktime-patch http://bandshed.net/avlinux6-debs/cinelerraHV/
What function it performs? For what purpose is it for?

Hi,

The THR-10 kernel patches (provided by joek) support USB connections with Yamaha THR series guitar and bass amps that have USB outs. Some USB-2 Audio devices (ie Presonus 1818VSL) had issues if someone changed the front panel sample rate to a different setting than the default and that patch is to fix that.

The Cinelerra patch was uploaded for safekeeping in order to help me to build Cinelerra 4.4, however it was a waste of time because Cinelerra 4.4 will only run it's executable on a 64bit system, (which was not mentioned in any of the documentation or release announcements  :rolleyes:). So that patch is simply there so I know where to find it for future reference.

I use ubuntu and CinelerraCV from ubuntu ppa.   CinelerraCV from ppa has a problem with export to H.264
There is another version - experimental code by monty. This version is capable of handling more formats.  But I do not know exactly which ones.
And as compiled version of this program CinelerraCV in your distribution AV Linux 6.0.1?
----
I compiled Сinecutie and it works   good on my Ubuntu 10.10  (except H.264)
It would be nice if the developer went on to develop it. But it seems that the project is closed.

Hi,

Yes AV Linux 6.0.1 has a custom Cinelerra 2.2CV build from Monty's branch with the new overlay engine however I'm not 100% sure how complete and functional the new ffmpeg stuff is in it, as far as I know the ffmpeg changes are to help with importing formats and don't fix the export issue. However Cinelerra can export using it's relatively crappy own export utility OR it can 'pipe' exports through ffmpeg which is far better and AV Linux comes with some H.264 ffmpeg export presets all ready to use which you won't find anywhere else, if you pipe export you need to do the audio and video streams separately and AV Linux also has a separate graphical muxing utility called FFMultiplex to make muxing the exported streams easy as well.

Now honesty time...

I have been an active Cinelerra user and project supporter for years and I've learned my way around it's quirks and have been able to reliably produce good work with it and I've tried to roll what I've learned into AV Linux to make things easier, however in recent times Kdenlive which was also maddeningly inconsistent and buggy for many years has risen to the challenge and really produced a top-shelf Linux NLE that can simply import files in ANY common format and export them to most common formats. Cinelerra requires so much preparation and conversion of input sources (especially with HD) and truthfully the export is a convoluted mess even though good results can be achieved with ffmpeg pipe that I am questioning if it is worth continuing to maintain. The core developers and maintainers are very dedicated, friendly and talented folks but even in the last 6 months their mailing list has been ominously quiet and the successor to Cinelerra 'Lumiera' seems to be stuck in limbo.

I don't want to discourage you from Cinelerra if that's what you truly want to use but these are simply the bare, cold facts as I see them. For what it's worth Cinelerra 4.4 is much the same and although it's H.264 export does work it doesn't have any option for ffmpeg pipe exports.. as I mentioned it isn't an option for AV Linux anyway but even if it were it still has the same source input issues seen in the CV version.
