Installing over an Ubuntu Studio installation.
Hello all, I am checking out a few new distributions for audio recording. I am new to Linux and currently I am set up with Ubuntu Studio. I only been on it for a month, but in that month's time, I been having a hard time getting my sound to work. Unfortunately I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi card and that only seems to be partially supported in Linux. I do know now that I am probably going to have to change my sound card to something more compliant with Linux. However, there are other things going on with the current version of Ubuntu that I am not too particularly happy with and I been doing some reading and as it turned out there are many that have switched from Ubuntu to other distributions for recording work. In my research, I found two standouts. The first one is JackLab and the second is 64Studio. Anyway, to cut to the chase what I am inquiring about is how I would go about installing 64Studio in place of Ubuntu Studio. I currently have a dual boot system in which I have two hard drives. The first hard drive is only for Windows XP and it's programs. The second hard drive is for Ubuntu and some storage space for both OS's. Now should I decide to go with 64studio, I would like to know what would be involved to install it in place of Ubuntu. I don't really want to mess with my partitions or Grub settings though because I got the dual boot working perfectly. Thanx, Geo
