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 :(.

[edit]
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.

I fixed all the ladspa plugins. When I release the next version, there should be 200+ ladspa plugins ready run  :D

Good news.
It would be nice to get as many people test as possible to help get the bugs out.

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  :()

Wow... I have to say, at first I thought this was not such a good idea, but the results I'm seeing here have changed my mind... I only wish I had enough space on my hdd to try this...

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.

Once 5.9 is declared stable, I will try this out. For the moment, no time to test a lot. Next time, I will be back here with a bug list ;)

Same here, as soon as I can I will test those packages. Great work there, btw.

I just remembered about a software project that had been presented during a Lan Party organized by the √Čvora 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 ;)

Cool! I'll do that one. I've already done QJackctl and this one doesn't introduce any new dependencies. Should be easy.

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.

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.
