This is a test install\upgrade of the last released version 2.1. It is based on etch (lenny is now the Debian stable release). It also runs an older kernel which works fine with older hardware. Please use the latest 3.0 testing version if you have newer hardware. Clean install 64studio 2.1. Into a multi-boot environment with ext3 /media/data/ backup partition. 64studio_2.1_i386.iso 797.8M 06-Jun-2008 SetUp Audio configuration and prepare default benchmark projects. Prepare for initial upgrade. Note: Qsynth will give errors when trying to upgrade so we need to pin it. Cheers! Dave.
