The goal is to have each of the dependencies upgraded to the latest version and included on the cd. I made a folder in my vectorcontrib directory for us to keep all the packages. If you want to help out, download and install/upgrade all the packages that are in there so that we will be using the same libraries for the development.

P.S. Now I'm crossing out all the ones that are in the BonusDisc folder.

I find myself in a maze of twisty little passages trying to satisfy the dependencies to build libXv. One of those dependencies is libX11, which I'm not sure I want to mess with. The latest version of libXv is in the Slackware repos at http://packages.slackware.it/package.php?q=current/libXv-1.0.3-i486-1 and perhaps it would be the best solution to use this.

[Edit] I've confirmed that this package installs OK.

I suppose if it works it might be okay. Just convert it to a .tlz first.

I'm recalling the nasm that I built. Cinelerra doesn't compile with it. If you upgraded it, revert to the original with this package: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.8/packages/dev/nasm-0.98.39-i586-4vl58.tlz (http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.8/packages/dev/nasm-0.98.39-i586-4vl58.tlz)

I've now done sox-13.0.0 and uploaded it. I'm a bit stuck on vorbis-tools and ffmeg2theora.
With vorbis-tools I get many pthread errors during make, such as:

/usr/include/pthread.h:285: error: conflicting declaration 'typedef struct pthread_st*pthread_t'
/usr/include/bits/pthreadtypes.h:150: error: 'pthread_t' has a previous declaration as `typedef long unsigned int pthread_t'
/usr/include/pthread.h:285: error: declaration of `typedef struct pthread_st*pthread_t'

I get these errors even if I uninstall pth first.

With ffmpeg2theora, make fails with reported coding errors (undefined references).

PS As the latest version of vorbis-tools is already in the repos, but in i486 form, it's probably not worth spending much more time on an i586 version?

I had similar problems with your pth package. When compiling Cinelerra. Strangly, as you pointed out, removing the package didn't solve the problems. I found that starting from a clean install of VL 5.8 Standard without the pth package removed the errors. I think that if the latest is in the repo, let's just use that.

Yup. That's what we'll do.

Yeah, I know. I was trying to compile it with all the latest dependencies. However, to say the least, it hasn't been playing nice. I'll finally just used your package and added in the symlinks to the latest libraries.

I reorginized the VideoBonusDisc folder to make it easier to see what are the main programs and what are the deps. Cinelerra is done!

If you can help I would appreciate it, as I really don't know anything about pthreads. The package which I built was from http://www.gnu.org/software/pth/ but I see that there are numerous other packages which also offer pthread support. Al I know is that libpthread is one of the dependencies of Kino.

Well, do press on until you hit a sticking point and come to me then. If it helps, I can ask uel if we can coordinate an SSH session on his box sometime (I have an account there as 'penguinpoker') and solve the mystery together.

I just tried to compile dvgrab with the pth package installed. It spit out a huge amount of errors all relating to pthreads. Uninstalling the package didn't fix the problem. Only starting over with a clean system worked.
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: roseway on August 23, 2007, 11:18:31 pm
Yes, I've had the same problem trying to build Kino, and unfortunately Kino won't build without libpthread. I can't see anything in the configuration of pth which would eliminate this error, and it has to be built with --enable-pthread. I've rebuilt it a couple of times with the same result. I've also tried the Slackware 12.0 version of pth-2.0.7, but this doesn't have pthread support so it's no use to us.

I've looked for alternative sources of libpthread, and found http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/faqs/Threads-FAQ/html/ThreadLibs.html but this page seems to be old - several of the links are no longer working, and I couldn't build any of the packages which I could download for various reasons (some of them didn't recognise i686 as a valid machine version).

So I'm stuck. I'm wondering if the pth error is a gcc version problem?

By the way, if you've installed pth and want to eliminate it you don't need to reinstall VL. When it's uninstalled it leaves behind a couple of pth* files in /usr/include and /usr/lib, and you can manually delete these.

Are you sure that Kino won't build without it? I was just using the Kino that's in the repo and it works fine without it. I tried building the latest Kino myself but ran into other problems not pth related (/usr/lib/libX11.la not found or something)

Yeah, I know, I had messed up my install anyway and needed to reinstall.

I'm really liking the combo of Vector and the multimedia stuff. It's perfect. VL is so fast that it makes an IDEAL video production platform!

Pretty sure. The configure stage fails with "You need the pthread library to compile Kino". I've tried --without-pthread and similar things, but it always fails with the same error. If I install pth then the configure stage completes but make fails with multiple pthread errors.

Hmmm...the configure goes through alright for me. Perhaps you have a 'dirty' box? Except for a *cough* minor issue of Kino needing some Xorg 7.2 libraries, it compiled fine for me. I had to track down the libraries and have included them in a separate package in the Kino directory. VL 5.8.6 users shouldn't need this package, in fact, they shouldn't install it. However, it fixes the problem for 5.8 boxes.

Post by: easuter on August 24, 2007, 03:03:30 pm
Dweeberkitty: I'm just a bit worried about the fact that Kino will need a separate package with a couple of Xorg 7.2 libraries in order to work, if one of its goals is to be added to the repo. Having both Xorg 6.9 and 7.2 libraries installed at once is not a good idea unless you have the xorg 7 libraries in a standalone location alongside kino, like /opt for example, and even so its likely to cause problems.
Secondly, the package KinoX11Libs.tlz does not follow the Slackware package naming standard, and will cause problems with slapt-get  and gslapt.

roseway: there is a bug in VL 5.8 Standard's Xorg package that may be the cause of the problem you are having (its also the cause of xcalc's weird layout). Try reinstalling the xorg 6.9 package with:

Code: [Select]
slapt-get --install x11 --reinstall

Eauster, the libraries are installed in /usr/lib/ and do not replace any files there. I don't think that any other programs on VL5.8 are going to be using them. Also, it's not a full Xorg-7.2 package, just a few of the files from one. However, if need be, what must be done for this to be accepted in the repo? I realize the package doesn't follow standards, I just put that up as a temporary thing until we get that part sorted out.



Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: easuter on August 24, 2007, 03:43:33 pm
You could prefix the Kino package to be installed in /opt/kino for example, and the include the xorg libraries in /opt/kino/lib.
Then to run Kino from that location, and using the xorg libraries installed there, use an ajusted library path variable:

Code: [Select]
LD_LIBRARY_PATH='/opt/kino/lib' /opt/kino/bin/kino
By running kino like this, it will use the libraries in /opt/kino/lib first. This way you also don't need to change /etc/ld.so.conf for the libraries to be found.

BTW, this in an ugly way to do things, so its not encouraged for "everyday" use. When its necessary, then at least it keeps potentially "dangerous" things compartmentalized.
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: roseway on August 25, 2007, 12:11:37 am
Thanks for your advice easuter. I think I'll reinstall VL 5.8 Standard to make sure my building box is clean, then maybe reinstall x11 as you suggest.
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: roseway on August 25, 2007, 08:40:32 am
OK, I think I've resolved the Kino problems. It doesn't need any X.org-7.2 files to build or run. I reinstalled VL 5.8 to return to a clean system, and installed all the packages in Dweeberkitty's collection except pth. I also needed to install texi2html from the repos.
After this Kino built with no issues and seems to work fine. I'll upload this version to my vectorcontrib directory shortly.

I suspect that the X dependency problems which Dweeberkitty found were resolved here by installing the xproto and xextproto packages. I did slightly mess these up by building them as TGZ instead of TLZ, but they install just fine anyway.
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: easuter on August 25, 2007, 09:54:32 am
Thats great news roseway, glad you found a way to build them in a clean manner.
BTW, you can convert a TGZ package into a TLZ package by using the convertpkg command

Roseway, glad you got the Kino thing figured out! BTW, did you compile it with --enable-local-ffmpeg? If not, you might want to recompile it with that option. We have an updated ffmpeg and it would be a shame not to make use of it.

I've now rebuilt Kino with --enable-local-ffmpeg and uploaded it to the VideoBonusDisk folder. The new version is kino-1.1.1-i586-2vl58.tlz.
I've established that libXv isn't actually a dependency of Kino, so if nothing else needs it, it can be removed from the collection.

Excellent! We won't remove libXv just yet. (just in case). I'm going to be working on tovid right now, we still have a lot more programs to go, so pick one and let's get going. It should go a little easier from now on because we have most of the base video programs and libraries already built. Also, I fixed all the package descriptions in the folder. These should now be ready for the repo. See here:

Okay, so now that I just found out that the VL 5.8.6 release has been canceled, I'm wondering what to do. I had originally planned to try to get the Bonus Disc done about the same time that 5.8.6 was released or a little bit after. Also, I was hoping to make sure that it was compatible with it. However, since that release has been canceled and work has started on the 6.0 development line, I'm wondering if we should try to make this Bonus Disc compatible with the 6.0 release or just keep working on 5.8. I think we should try to look at our packages and asses what it would take to make this work with 6.0 also we need to talk to the devs to see what their projected release date for 6.0 might be. That way we can get an idea as to how much time we have, also what changes might happen to 6.0 during the development process that might break packages that we made at the beginning. Any suggestions? It would be nice to have some input from the devs on this since they are more experienced at this kind of thing than I am.

Since we have only just started on the Bonus Disc, it really wouldn't be too hard to repackage some of the programs on 5.9.x and just make sure that everything from this point forward is 6.0 compatible.

Heh, heh :D. It's a typo, I meant "assess" which means:

 1.  to estimate officially the value of (property, income, etc.) as a basis for taxation.
 2.  to fix or determine the amount of (damages, a tax, a fine, etc.): The hurricane damage was assessed at six million dollars. 
 3.  to impose a tax or other charge on.
 4.  to estimate or judge the value, character, etc., of; evaluate: to assess one's efforts.

Right now I'm working on redoing all the packages that we've done so far and getting them to work on VL 5.9. However, I'm having trouble compiling a lot of things with the Pseudo (not the packager version) and I can't download the packager version because I'm actually away from home right now, (with slow Internet). I'll be back home in the next couple of days and then I can try to get back to the point that we were with the 5.8 packages.   >:(

Big difference.  Not such a puzzling statement now.  The first statement sounds pretty darn funny where I come from.  :P

Sorry about all the extra work on the project.  :-\

Okay, so now that I just found out that the VL 5.8.6 release has been canceled, I'm wondering what to do. I had originally planned to try to get the Bonus Disc done about the same time that 5.8.6 was released or a little bit after. Also, I was hoping to make sure that it was compatible with it. However, since that release has been canceled and work has started on the 6.0 development line, I'm wondering if we should try to make this Bonus Disc compatible with the 6.0 release or just keep working on 5.8. I think we should try to look at our packages and asses what it would take to make this work with 6.0 also we need to talk to the devs to see what their projected release date for 6.0 might be. That way we can get an idea as to how much time we have, also what changes might happen to 6.0 during the development process that might break packages that we made at the beginning. Any suggestions? It would be nice to have some input from the devs on this since they are more experienced at this kind of thing than I am.

Since we have only just started on the Bonus Disc, it really wouldn't be too hard to repackage some of the programs on 5.9.x and just make sure that everything from this point forward is 6.0 compatible.

I vote for 5.9/6.0.  A lot is already in the VL 5.8 repositories and it is now clear that 5.8 isn't much longer for this world, at least as the current release.  I know that all the packaging I'm now doing, as well as my Vector Mini project, are based on 5.9

Yep, I've already started working on making this for 5.9. But...the libiconv thing kind of messed things up for me.

Post by: Dweeberkitty on November 10, 2007, 08:15:36 am
Actually it was built on 5.9. And I have my build environment set up to make it extremely easy to rebuild everything on future releases.

EDIT: I need some suggestions on video programs. I was amazed as I started packaging how many cool audio programs/plugins/stuff was out there for Linux. However, I couldn't find nearly as many video/dvd programs. I need people to give me the names to some video programs that aren't already on the list. Thanks!

Okay, for those of you who don't know what this Multimedia Bonus Disc is, here's a description along with some screenshots.

Prior to this bonus disc, it was very frustrating and difficult to find and install the programs needed to edit video and audio and create DVDs. Built upon the sleek and stable Vector Linux 5.9, the Multimedia Bonus Disc solves all your multimedia problems and provides the perfect platform for video and audio production. Gone are the days of searching through forums trying to find a program to just create a DVD. Now all the programs you need are installed at once and are available at a click.

This is what the Multimedia menu looks like after installing what I've done so far  ;D :

Wow, this looks really awesome! Great idea!

If I have the time in the near future I will help you search for even more programs you could include.
(Ardour looks like a nice audio tool, didn't know that yet)

A little note on the menu, maybe it would be nice to group the applications by their purposes. Something like: Audio / Video / ....

Once this is out, I'm really going to give it a try. Always wanted to play with sound, but didn't had the capabilties to set everything up correctly.

Are there any KDE dependencies? Maybe you could write the version numbers of the programs you included.

There aren't any KDE deps yet. I skipped the ones that do. All the programs are the latest and if you look at my post with the list of packages, you'll see the versions.

Thanks Uelsk8s,

I need everyone who's using VL5.9 to test this, make suggestions, post bug reports, and request applications. I'll do my best to keep up.

There are known problems with these programs: Hugin, Tovid GUI, Mixxx, and the ladspa plugins. Everything else seems to work fine so far...

BTW, I made it very easy to install. Just put the disc in your computer and double click on the Install icon. I created a VERY simple GUI installer. Warning: There is no way to chose individual applications yet. You get the whole shebang. Thanks for being patient with me.  :)

Hmmm.... so no individual packages in the repo either??? That's a shame. By the way, is there any special reason why it's called a meida disc? I was pretty sure it was going to be a media disc ;). Trouble with the ladspa plugins is a shame, I need them :(.

Oops, just realized I sounded very negative. I didn't mean to, keep up the good work!

Individual packages will be in the repo, as soon as Easuter gets to them.  ;)

Ladspa and the plugins work, just some of my plugin packages didn't package, if that makes sense.  >:( I should have paid more attention when I did those. They will be fixed in the next release. To see the ones that are working, open Audacity and click on the "effects" menu. All the ones that are working should be there.

Give it a test run and let me know what you think.

Yep. We need testers! I fixed Mixxx now.

The libmad package that's included in VL5.9 doesn't show up in pkg-config. I'm making a new package for it which needs to replace the existing one in the VL5.9 release, unless it's already been fixed, (I'm still on Beta2.8  :()

Good work guys..

It'd be nice to keep this fully compattible with the regular STD or SOHO releases... so you dont have to rework all your packages and stuff.

Keep it up.... you guys rock!

It is fully compatible. Hope you can check it out sometime!

Okay, I fixed the libmad package. Developers, it is in vectorcontrib/Dweeberkitty/deps/libmad/

The only thing that I changed was added a mad.pc file. Audacity wouldn't compile without it.

I just remembered about a software project that had been presented during a Lan Party organized by the Évora University in October: QTractor.
Here is the project page:

http://qtractor.sourceforge.net/qtractor-index.html

Don't know how I forgot to mention this earlier!  :D
Anyway, its written by the same guy who wrote QJackctl (Rui Nuno Capela).

And Qt4 is available for 5.9, so thats one less dep out of the way ;)
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: Dweeberkitty on November 17, 2007, 04:04:08 pm
Cool! I'll do that one. I've already done QJackctl and this one doesn't introduce any new dependencies. Should be easy.
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: The Headacher on November 17, 2007, 04:50:17 pm
Qtractor looks very promising. I already knew about it, but I haven't had the opportunity to really test it yet. Something else I've been wanting to give a go is the latest Rosegarden. I already liked 1.4.0, but since lilypond (an optional dependency) doesn't compile on gcc3 I never felt like installing 1.5.1 without it and stuck with 1.4.0. 
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: Dweeberkitty on November 17, 2007, 06:34:26 pm
Yeah, I started working on lilypond, but there were a lot of weird dependencies so I put it off. I know I'm going to have to package it but ever being the procrastinator that I am... ::) I don't want to compile some things without it either. It's really the best typesetting tool out there. I've been composing a prelude with it myself and it turns out really nice. I'll get to it, don't worry.

I did the Qtractor program. Easy to package. I was also trying to package this sweet looking media center program: http://elisa.fluendo.com/  but all the python-stuff dependencies were driving me nuts. I put that one off too and will finish it later.

I packaged Timidity. Previously, when using Timidity, one had to download soundfonts or something and make a timidity.cfg file to make it play anything. The package I just made, already comes with the sounds and is setup so one should be able to play midi files out of the box. Now when you compose your music in Demeno, Noteedit, Rosegarden etc... you should be able to play it back. (very useful)

I also found another program done by the same guy that did Qtractor, Qjackctl, it's Qsynth. I packaged that one as well.

Already did that one. Here's the list that I've been working on.

If people could suggest programs that aren't already on that list, that would be great. Sorry I didn't mention that before. Thanks!

Weird program.

I need help. I've packaged all the dependencies for lilypond but now it asks for mf mf-nowin and a few others along the same line. I found that the mf programs are part of MetaFont but for the life of me I can't find where to download the thing. It seems to go hand in hand with Tex. I've never had any experience with MetaFont stuff and I don't know where to get it. It appears that mf and mf-nowin etc... are programs. Here's the man page for them: http://linux.die.net/man/1/mf-nowin but I can't find where to get the source. I'm sure it's really simple but I can't find it. The sooner I can get this packaged, the sooner I can do lilypond and the other music notation editors. If someone could direct me to the right place, that'd be great. Thanks!

You are right, they won't be messing with it anymore as the HUGE Tex Live will be replacing it.  But it will take a while before everyone makes the transition since the last release really hasn't collected any dust.

I've never seen any program that needs pulseaudio (there are a few that support it though). I'm not sure what it can do that Jack can't, or how it will work together with Jack. As far as I can see, it's designed to be a replacement for esound, which is useless. The features it offers don't seem very useful in a production environment, looks like a waste of space to me. But then again I've been wrong before.

Now, I'm not sure where you keep your package list nowadays, but is Blender on it yet? Now there's a gem :-).

Yeah, you are right. But I though we were looking for apps... Anyway, the future will say. I think jack is a dependency here. Seems like jack with network capabilities. It is cross-platform, not too much to say.

will wacom-tools be on it? Set to automatically add entries to xorg.con when the tabled is plugged,so one can start using it only after ctrl++alt+back ...like it is in ubuntu,mandriva and most common distros?
If so,you should also add expresskeys to enable media button support in tablets:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/wacomexpresskeys/

works great with gimp and blender

also,a must tool for any graphic designer/photographer is a image batch processing tool. Kde image menu or Phatch would do the trick.Phatch is using python and its imaging library.Kim is using imagemagick and kdelibs.

Possibly. I'm not so much of a guru at stuff like that but it may be setup that way in the future. One problem I have with doing that is that I don't have any tablets to test it on. I'd either need someone who has one to help me do it, or have people donate their old tablets to the cause.  ;)

Also that might be a project for the devs to work on and integrate into VL itself.


BTW, here's my TeTeX build script. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but in case anyone knows the solution, here it is:
Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/bash
# This script assumes it will be launched within "/NAME/VERSION/src" dir.
# With all sources in "src" Your Vector Linux .tlz package, slack-desc,

Whooohooo! I finally got a working teTeX package built. I would have never figured it out myself without that build script. With like a bazillion patches and things, it got pretty involved. Thank you Patrick Volkerding! Now lilypond compiles with teTeX up until this error:

Arrrggh! They say on their site that building lilypond is an involved process, but man! Lilypond is a nice typesetter an all, but is it really worth all this when you can just download their installer.sh thing? Whatever, I've come this far, won't stop now.

Blurymind, I'll see what I can do as soon as I get these other packages done.

That's awesome you got Tetex worked out.  Surely if Lilypond puked, others would as well.  Nice job.  Why not install the needed font, build lilypond, and then include the font (with dir tree) in your package?

I didn't understand the error message about
Cannot open /usr/share/fonts/TTF/DejaVuSansBold.pfb

Well, of course! There is no such font as DejaVuSansBold.pfb because a pfb font is Type 1 and DejaVuSansBold comes in TrueType. To get a Type 1 font for DejaVuSansBold, you'd have to convert it. Maybe that's what the fontforge stuff is about. Fontforge can convert between TrueType and Type 1. So you'd need fontforge on the system. I used to have it but haven't installed it on the 5.9 release candidates I'm now using. The Century Schoolbook OTF would be an OpenType font. I don't know if OpenType fonts come with any Linux distros; they don't come with VectorLinux, to my knowledge.

I don't know if this helps.

Dweeberkitty, if you can't get around that problem then maybe posting a message on the lilypond mailing list may give you some answers:

Apparently that is part of the lilypond init files placed in the scm directory. You can configure the lilypond expressions from there. I wonder why the built didn't placed some default scm files there.

One video app: http://www.jahshaka.org/

I noted yafray is in the list, are you planning to build it? It is almost the official render engine for advanced Blender users.
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: Dweeberkitty on November 26, 2007, 11:31:04 am
Yep, I will do Yafray. I just did Blender so Yafray's coming. I'll see what I can do about Jahshaka, I had tried to build it one time but it didn't like me.

Here's the specific error I get with lilypond:

After some detective work, I found that make install gives this error:

Not sure what you're up against with that error. Not looking at your script, but make sure you:
Quote
make || exit 1
Your script doesn't care if make is successful or not, it'll just keep on packaging.  You can also
Quote
set -e
right under the #! line so it will stop on any errors in the entire script.

Yup, I know. I did forget the "|| exit 1"  after the make install. That's why I didn't see the error in the first place. But that's fixed now.

I finally got a working lilypond package! I copied the folders as I mentioned above and it works! However, lilypond puts a WHOLE bunch of other stuff in those folders that doesn't need to be there. The package weighs in just over 22Mb! So, I have a working lilypond installation, but it's not something I'd submit to the repos yet. Still trying to figure out where that error comes from.  ???
Title: Re: Multimedia Bonus Disc development
Post by: Dweeberkitty on November 26, 2007, 03:24:34 pm
Whooohooo! I did it! Lilypond is packaged.  ;D :D ;) :) After countless hours of work, I get a....2Mb file in a folder.  ::) Was it worth it? I don't know, but I have to say, my Prelude No. 1 came out looking Beeautiful after using lilypond with it.

My "fix" was to pass the -i option to make install. Listen up all you wannabe packagers, I am NOT endorsing the use of the -i option EVER. Don't think you can pass it to make if something isn't working and submit it to the repos and get away with it. The only reason I can do it, is because make install was hanging up on a nonexistant file, I made sure everything that was needed but that file was installed, and I tested it thoroughly. Also I didn't pass the -i option to "make all". That would be a very big no no. I only passed it to make install which just installs the files, the actual compiling of lilypond occurred without error. For those of you who are wondering, the -i option tells make to ignore all errors.

When I saw on their site that they said "Compiling lilypond is an involved process" I didn't pay any attention. Now however, I believe them. Whew! I hope someone can get some use out of this package. I know I will. I better, after all that work.  ;)

Great job dweeberkitty. Surely is an useful package. I remember some time ago a new member requested a musical notation soft. There is no much options in Linux for this. Noteedit is not developed anymore and it fork, Canorus, is still too young. Lilypond wont compile in 5.8 because of the toolchain.
Well, we can print some scores now, thanks! BTW, would be nice to listen that prelude sometime ;-)

If I can make a descent recording of it, sure! I don't have any microphones worth anything. So far, the only way I can record anything that sounds relatively good is by hooking up my computer to the electric piano, which as you can imagine isn't quite as good as having a good microphone set underneath the baby grand.

EDIT: I found another vid app: http://kdenlive.org/index.php

Thanks for posting that app. I was going to do it a while back but skipped it because of the KDE deps. Now I can do it since VL5.9 has KDE libs installed. I'll do that one.

I'm starting to wrap things up for releasing Alpha 2. I will have it uploaded soon!

wow, you have a grand. I recorded my brother and his verticall piano a few month ago. We used to have a cheap Maya44 pci card, it can record 4 channels, full duplex. A friend o mine gave me four nice condenser mics. We recorded a small piece for a short movie. I was amazed about the possibilities. A home studio is a great thing to do, and one of the betters way for having fun without lose your time  :D.
I gave the Maya to my brother, it has no linux drivers  >:(

That is what I though. And honestly, I think kdelibs is a small piece of hard disk compared to the benefits. By now, I think you have most of the deps already.

It's only a 5'9" 1934 Kimball but it's pretty nice and has just been tuned but needs to be regulated. The only sound card I have is the one that's built into my mother board. And the only microphone I have is one of those cheesy voice microphones. I've been thinking about getting some better equipment but I haven't done anything yet. I'll probably finish writing my prelude before I actually buy anything. As it is, I only have about two pages written but the rest is all still in my head.  ;)

Multimedia Bonus Disc Alpha 2 is out!

I would like as many people to test this as possible to get the bugs worked out. Thanks!

The iso is here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/Uelsk8s/old-pkgs/MultimediaBonusDisc-Alpha2.iso

EDIT: I made a stupid mistake in the installer. Not all of the packages get installed. To finish the installation, go into Data/Packages and as root run this command:
Code: [Select]
upgradepkg --install-new *.tlz Sorry, I should have seen this before. It works fine after installing the rest of the packages

Here's what's changed since Alpha 1.1:
** Added packages:
pigment
python-setuptools
qtractor
lives
fluidsynth
swami
csound
qsynth
TiMidity++
guile
fontforge
autotrace
mftrace
tetex
libpano12
lilypond
qdvdauthor
dssi
fluidsynth-dssi
rosegarden
libatomic_ops
pulseaudio
tapiir
libsigc++
blender
tse3
XML-Twig
potrace
t1utils
ttf2pt1

** Updated packages:
Avidemux
TiMidity++
Audacity
Manslide

** Removed packages:

hugin (Deferred until next version: Bug prevents it form working with wxGTK >= 2.8.5)
wired (Deferred until next version: Too buggy and doesn't work)

** Fixed:

Fixed ladspa plugins.

Hi Dweeberkitty, I think Hanumizzle and I found something, wxGTK-2.8.6 is missing from the Audacity required.
Do you get clean audio recording with ardour2? I get some noise, but my soundcard is crap so I don't really know the cause ???

I have already done that and it made no difference. the sound card works fine with xmms movies and other sound events.  so don't know what the trouble can be.

Perhaps the problem is that I'm Using an Intel sound card instead of Creative Labs.  But this sound card has worked in the past with Audacity on other Distrobutions , So there must be something I can do to make it work in VL 5.9 Also.  Just haven't found it yet.. Anyone got it working with and Intel Sound system?

However, switching back to default works fine. Also you may want to check the project samplerate (In the lower left hand corner) and see if that has anything to do with it. Let me know!

Hi Dweeberkitty,

Here are the Options that Edit>Preferences>I/O give me
Record  OSS: /dev/dsp
              ALSA: Intel 82801AA-ICH: Intel 82801AA-ICH (HW: 0,0)
              ALSA: Intel 82801AA-ICH: Intel 82801AA-ICH - MIC ADC (HW: 0,1)
              ALSA: spdif
              ALSA: default
              JACK: Audio Connection Kit: Alsa_pcm
I have tried them all and none work
Have also tried every project rate and it make no difference.

don't know what else to try

kc1di,
can you try this kernel: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-2.6.22.15ck2-i586-1vl59.tlz
and modules: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/kernels/kernel-modules-2.6.22.15ck2-i586-1vl59.tlz
maybe the in kernel alsa drivers will work better for your soundcard

That is the strangest thing. It works great for me. Try installing the latest RC1. I think I rebuilt Audacity to use wxGTK-2.8.7. Give it a try. Beyond that, the only thing I can think of is maybe it's a bug in Audacity. This is a development version after all.

A new jack has been released yesterday : http://jackaudio.org/node/17

It seems like a lot has changed.

I have not tested it yet, so I have no idea if programs compiled against jack 0.103 will work with jack 0.109. Since the change is only a minor number, I guess it should be backwards compatible.

Thank you will give it a try. I specifically need Mp3 encoding.
