AV Linux 2019.4.10 Released!
« on: April 02, 2019, 11:53:12 PM »
Hi AVL Friends!

AV Linux 2019.4.10 has been released (8 days early!) ;)



This release is basically an update of the ISO that fixes a couple of annoying bugs from the 2018.6.25 release with some notable updates and additions. It will mark the last release based on Debian Stretch and sadly it will also be the last release of the 32bit version. Future AVL development will focus on Debian 'Buster' and 64bit only. In the meantime I think this 2019.4.10 version will provide a fast, stable well prepared platform for AV Content creation for quite some time.

CHANGELOG:

Refreshed expired Repository Keys for WineHQ and Spotify.
Updated and Fixed Repositories for New Cinelerra-GG site.
Updated and Synced all Debian and 3rd Party Repos (including KXStudio).
Fixed VBox Guest Additions removal script to allow /etc/rc.local to remain executable and enable Automount of external drives. (thanks korakios)
Fixed missing 'linvstconverttree' in LinVST.
Removed some obsoleted udev rules.
Installed and configured new Numix Circle Theme with AVL Customizations.
Updated Mixbus Demo to 5.2.191.
Updated LSP Plugins to 1.1.9.
Updated LinVST to 2.4.3 (now provided and working on 32bit and 64bit ISOs).
Removed redundant 'ArdourVST' build on 32bit ISO.
Updated Dragonfly Reverb Plugins to 1.1.2.
Added KPP-Plugins 1.0+GIT
Added AViDemux (very handy Video tool)

Best Regards and Enjoy!
Glen

Nice work Glen! Your magnificent work is greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately I just did a complete nuke n' pave of my system a few days ago and installed from the 2018 iso. Is there anything I need to do apart from full-upgrade to get parity with the new version? I'm thinking mainly of the new theme and Vbox GA removal script.

Hi,

Thanks all for the kind words!

@sunrat

Actually the Vbox script uninstalls itself on first run so you don't need the script itself but if you want any external drives and partitions to automount after installing 2018.6.25 you need to reset the execution bit on /etc/rc.local in a Root Terminal:

Code: [Select]
chmod -x /etc/rc.local
As far as the theme if you're interested I can upload the new theme package somewhere

Thanks Glen. I would definitely be interested to try the new theme if you could upload it. I've been experimenting with theme changes but not quite satisfied yet. One problem is I use a UHD monitor and the hidpi theme selection is limited.

Here is the new theme: http://www.bandshed.net/packages/avlinux-2019-numix-theme/avlinux-2019-numix-theme_0.0.2-avlinux8-1_all.deb

Numix was built from the projects latest GIT, I'm not sure if it has built in hidpi features or not. If you want the new SLiM theme you need to edit /etc/slim.conf and then change the default theme from 'avl-2016' to 'avl-2019'

Hi Glen,

Is there an option for updating to this new version without having to do a clean installation?

Thanks for the beautiful new recording environment, Glen. Also loving the behind-the-scenes improvements. Nice work!

Probably like many here, I found AVLinux after going a few rounds with Ubuntu Studio an being unhappy with the results. My Jam Crew loves what we've been able to do with AVLinux. I'm the house nerd in the group and have been using AVL since the 2017 release, which our JamNight 32-channel system is still running. Got a couple of shows to get through before I try to install the new release on that system. My personal 20-channel studio system is already running the recent 2019 release. Thanks for doing what you do.

Only 3 months later and I ran into a problem, that command should be:
Code: [Select]
chmod +x /etc/rc.localFirst time I wanted to record something since reinstalling and Mixbus failed to start recording. Turned out the default session location drive wasn't mounted!
The new Numix theme looks nice but the old Default-xhdpi theme is a little better on a 4K monitor. The new one would be quite useable though.

AVL is performing like a champion so thanks again.  :cool:

I just had another quick look through the changelog which prompted a couple more questions. I don't use WineHQ, Spotify or Cinelerra but it may be useful to some users to post how to update these repos. LSP plugins are now 1.1.9 from KX repo. Most other packages appear to have happily upgraded with the standard apt full-upgrade.
I'd like to update Dragonfly Reverb and LinVST, did you build .deb packages for these or do I need to build from tarballs?

Another thing I sometimes do is use journalctl as regular user but user needs to be added to systemd-journal group for this to work -
Code: [Select]
usermod -a -G systemd-journal <username>That would be a good default for a future release if possible.
