Thread: The Linux Studio Project

  1. #1

    Post The Linux Studio Project

    I've re-written my "Free Studio Project" to reflect recent changes in both Debian and Mixbus (Harrison released a new product called Mixbus 32C when I started this new version).

    My goal is to keep this more up-to-date with recent and upcoming changes.

    With the help of Elmeaux and Frank from the Harrison Mixbus forums I've created a PDF manual to install Harrison Mixbus/Mixbus 32C on Debian GNU/Linux 8 (codename Jessie).

    The latest version (it's version 1 at the moment) will be available on github for all to Download.
    The link will open the PDF inside of github, to save the file to your computer click the Download button.

    I hope this proves to be useful for those trying to setup a (dedicated) home studio.

    It's a very informative paper that demonstrates Patrick's skill and knowledge on the subject. He works very hard to create this material for The Row!

    Thanks for the kind words C.L. ... and the editing of my typos ;-)

    Default Debian Stretch Update

    With the new stable release of Debian (version 9, codename stretch) I found that the swappness settings for Debian 8 (codename Jessie) no longer works (if you follow my guide, the swappness will remain 60 and the Realtime Quickscan will report this).

    To fix, this there is a minor modification that needs to be made:

    add the line :
    vm.swappiness=10
    to /etc/sysctl.conf


    the file /etc/sysctl.conf should also contain the line : "fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288" as stated in my guide.
    so now the bottom of the file looks somewhat like this:

    Code:
    #################################################################### Magic system request Key
    # 0=disable, 1=enable all
    # Debian kernels have this set to 0 (disable the key)
    # See https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/sysrq.txt
    # for what other values do
    #kernel.sysrq=1
    
    
    ###################################################################
    # Protected links
    #
    # Protects against creating or following links under certain conditions
    # Debian kernels have both set to 1 (restricted) 
    # See https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/sysctl/fs.txt
    #fs.protected_hardlinks=0
    #fs.protected_symlinks=0
    fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288
    vm.swappiness=10
    Also, I've upgraded my custom RT kernel for Debian 9, and now it's 5 DEB-packages (but you don't really need all 5).
    these packages are :
    linux-firmware-image-4.9.35-rt25-cloudywizzard
    linux-headers-4.9.35-rt25-cloudywizzard
    linux-image-4.9.35-rt25-cloudywizzard
    linux-image-4.9.35-rt25-cloudywizzard-dbg
    linux-libc-dev

    the "linux-image-4.9.35-rt25-cloudywizzard-dbg" contains "Debugging" symbols and is not required for normal use
    the "linux-headers-4.9.35-rt25-cloudywizzard" contains the "Headers" for the kernel (only needed to (re-compile) the kernel or to compile kernel modules (if needed)
    and as I understand "linux-libc-dev" is also only needed for development

    They can all be downloaded from gemfury : https://gemfury.com/cloudywizzard
