As much as being defined the team leader of a great Linux audio
distribution can really pump up your ego, I have to correct (slightly)
the above: the `live' version of AGNULA/DeMuDi (which, if I understood
correctly, will be offered both at the meeting and to Linux Magazin
subscribers, thanks to the kind work of Frank Neumann who acted as a
glue between AGNULA and the people at Linux Magazin) is not the first
live GNU/Linux distribution dedicated to multimedia.
Medialinux (http://www.opensourcelabs.it/) and Dyne:Bolic
(http://www.dyne.org/) have been developed before AGNULA/DeMUDi, in
One could say that AGNULA/DeMuDi is more focused on audio and sound
than the above distributions, which are more for "multimedia guys"
(whatever than means :).
I suggest trying the above mentioned distros - they are really
nice. Of course, trying AGNULA/DeMuDi (and reporting all the bugs you
can find) would be a plus.

I'm quite curious seeing it. I'd love having AGNULA/DeMuDi inside the
Mediastation - who knows? :)
Feel free to write me for any information on AGNULA and AGNULA/DeMuDi,
and pardon me for the off topic message.
