For those who can't wait for Version 3.0 to arrive.
I know that a lot of you are getting quite impatient waiting for the release of 64Studio 3.0 (it's been well over a year since 2.1). So i jumped ship (sorry...but read on). I had read that 64Studio had teamed up with Indamixx and made this awesome OS called Transmission. It has 64Studio mixed with ubuntu 9.04. Yes there is basically a "64Studio 3.0" version already out...but it's not free! so i started checking... Here's what i did. My research found that the new Linux-rt 2.6.31.XX kernel is working very stable with ubuntu as well as other Linux distros that add this realtime kernel. So I took the plunged and loaded Ubuntu 9.10 clean install and followed the instruction on the Ubuntu Studio Preparation site (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudioPreparation). This DOESN'T load "ubuntu studio" instead it points you to loading essential apps for audio production while keeping the shiny new Koala in the tree. I am up and stable with NO xruns in ardour 2.8.2. The newest Jack, the newest hydrogen and newest gnome. The newest everything. Even Pulse audio is playing nicely with realtime access to apps. Can even use Pulse audio in real time! (why i don't know but i just had to check) Never been so tickled with a system in many years. Amazingly stable and solid. All good Karma with my new Koala!! Anyone interested on how this hybrid system in put together step by step, i'll share. Perhaps this might tied some people over till Daniel and Free get the new 3.0 ready.... if you like to tinker and want a new system try this... (you might not even switch back). Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala with Linux-rt kernel (from Ubuntu community) loaded with essential audio apps like Ardour, Jack etc ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!....thanks Indamixx for this wonderful idea. Happy Trails!
