Hi, A big pro of 64studio is the stability of it! a bit of a disadvantage is that some apps are bit out of date and that it could give some troubles to build for example the new ardour on it. So my question or suggestion is: Why not make also a 64studio based on Debian testing? A great advantage is that you are able to got the newest apps more easy and that it is not necessary to build or more easy new apps like ardour etc. It hard to add some packages from debian unstable to 64studio or debian stable. But it's far more easy and safe to mix unstable packages with debian testing... I'm looking forward to some reactions and discussion.

Ok, thanks for the info and

Hi, I can't answer your question on the developers choice of version control, 64studio is based on being a stable environment for audio/video work, and with compatible hardware it certainly is. I always have a lenny upgrade going on using a test disk, but it is not straightforward, and it's easy to break your install. CheckOut these mailing lists, the Linux-audio-tuning has info on kernel development. http://lists.linuxaudio.org/listinfo/ http://www.64studio.com/mailing_lists Cheers, dave

Ok, thanks. You couln't use a sort of PDK which could also be used for testing/unstable? And will there be a new rt kernel version soon? And the new testing release, based on Sid, will it have an up to date kernel? Thanks,

64 Studio is build on PDK. It works very well and is quite stable, but PDK does not like moving targets (like testing) The core packages should stay stable, and testing has core packages changing all the time. When Lenny is released as stable, "Squeezy" the new testing will be quite unstable - a snapshot of SID. This is why we are running a backports repository.

PDK? What is that? I do not

PDK? What is that? I do not know it, so I can't say if this is a right choice, but I believe you ;) A ok, so the testing release is now based on testing but will be based on sid? Interesting. So there will be also a more up to date 64studio rt kernel? (you make good kernels and I like to use it with debian sid!)
