The joy of software audio mixing [Oct. 10th, 2006|12:28 am]

[music |A cacophony]

So, I now have proper audio mixing on linux. Yay!

To celebrate I played both the George W version of Imagine and Sleater Kinney's "One Beat". It works well to begin with.

Never has a cacophony sounded so sweet!

Hey YOU, you linux-savvy lord-of-the-nerds;

I'm currently using FC5, but after umpteen years using it I still know sweet fuck all about linux. Can you link me to any good sites where I can teach myself general stuff? Also, I really really wanna play with the new XGL and AIGLX desktops, but as far as I know FC6 isn't going to support XGL, but AIGLX instead. I'm not even entirely sure of the differences between them. Can you recommend me a better distro, or should I just update to FC6 and check out AIGLX? I am confuddled ;)

The way I learnt was through randomness... and linux magazines.

The cheaper ways is : http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz -it's called RUTE. It teaches a lot of cool things. I still don't know everything it has in there... but then I know some other things.

XGL is Novell's baby - there are reasons why people don't like it. Mainly because it breaks the X client/server idea, and it's mostly geared to nvidia. I'm not sure about AIGLX much, but that Redhad/Fedora are one of the big guys behind it, and that it's a little more friendly on the client/server stuff... and it's mostly for ATI chipsets.

There's a gentoo-wiki article on getting the two up and running as well.
