I want to build a system that monitors several audio signals. It will
need to run:
meterbridge (3 stereo pairs)
silentjack (3 instances)
There will be three soundcards.
Synchronicity and realtime are not important. Long-term stability (i.e.
running 24/7) is.
Silentjack will need to run scripts that send emails in the event of
It will need to boot into a script that starts all the above.
It will not need a desktop - a straightforward windowmanager like fvwm
It would be nice if it ran on elderly hardware - a PIII/733 with 512MB
I am expecting to modify meterbridge, so the existence of a binary
package is not important for that application. The others, however,
will be standard.
Any thoughts which distribution would be the best starting point?
