As the author of the first project (Turn-key Linux
Audio), I can tell you that I have been talking to
Fernando at PlanetCCRMA about a Mandrake "port", but
have not had time to do this just yet.  Planet is very
well maintained, easy to use, and very complete,
making it a great model for future work.

For now, I would recommend looking at Thac's growing
list of rpm's for 9.1 (his entire site can be accessed
with urpmi, an apt-get like tool on Mandrake), and/or
checking out the main Mandrake repositories, as I
understand the Mandrake folks did some rpm building of
there own for this release (jack, audacity, etc).

Thac's Mandrake 9.1 site can be accesssed with one
number different than the address listed above:


Turn-key itself will also be getting a major update in
the coming weeks, including the addition of scripts to
automate PlanetCCRMA installs in redhat (with kernel
tuning, runlevels, apps, etc), new stuff for Mandrake
9.1, as well as a new and improved core package of
utilities, examples, etc, the majority of which are
not distro or even *nix specific and have even been
used in OSX.
