:: WHAT IS DYNE:BOLIC ?
Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable cd, containing a whole
operating system that works straight from boot, without the need to
install or change anything on the hard disk.
If you like and want to have it on harddisk you can simply copy the
/dyne directory on your computer: the simpliest installation ever! Your
older system is untouched and comes back booting without CD.
Dyne:bolic is user-friendly: recognizes your hardware devices (sound,
video, firewire, modem, network and USB) and offers a vast range of
software for multimedia production: audio and video manipulation, sound
composition and synthesis, 3D modeling, photography, peer2peer
filesharing, web browsing, veejaying, desktop publishing, word
processing, cd burning, email, encryption, anonymity tools and more.
All software is free and there is no market operation behind
dyne:bolic, just a communal effort to widen access to modern technology
and let people be Free to Create.
Dyne:bolic is being developed since 6 years by independent and well
skilled artisans optimizing it to run on computers commonly found in
Africa America Asia Europe and Oceania. It includes code from hundreds
of programmers all around the world, with a lively community of
artists, teachers and developers who use, distribute and adapt this
platform according to their needs and desires.
This operating system is a grassroot effort to share independent
knowledge, it keeps away from commercial speculations and capitalist
corporations, because CREATIONS WANT TO BE FREE.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: QUOTE OF THE DAY :::
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: : : : : : : : : ::::
Go ahead, capitalize the T on technology, deify it if it will make you
feel less responsible -- but it puts you in with the neutered,
brother, in with the eunuchs keeping the harem of our stolen Earth for
the numb and joyless hardons of human sultans, human elite with no
right at all to be where they are --"

=== WHAT'S NEW in 2.5
After 6 months of development this release stabilizes and updates the
core system, also providing recent versions of most used software and
some important new functionalities.
New features: writable NTFS support (ntfs-3g) now lets you save data
and nest also on WindlowsNT formatted partitions, firewire audio cards
are now supported by Jack (Freebob). Nesting capability is made even
more easy to operate as nests can be mounted without reboot: just
stick your usb key and double click on a nest to have it mounted.
New software: Ekiga, Guarddog and Wireshark plus all the GtkPython and
WxPython libraries. Text console usage is enhanced by a fully
functional mail setup with Mutt Msmtp Fetchmail Procmail and
Spamassassin, the text based presentation tool TPP and the Rtorrent
download client. A graphical desktop repair button and a mount utility
for Ssh accounts are also provided.
Updated software include Ardour2, Gimp, Audacity, FreeJ, Nicotine+,
Pidgin, Ktorrent, Rox and toolkit libraries as Gtk, Cairo and Wx.
Fixes include a better interface for wifi configuration, a desktop
repair button, harddisk storage detection and yet more issues have
been solved for an increasingly smooth usage.
Also external modules are on the way to be updated and an EXTRAS 2nd
CD will be soon released providing automatic installation of popular
additional modules as OpenOffice, Devel, Java, Wine and kernel
As if all this wouldn't be enough, the dyne:bolic community is
blossoming several specialized modules, developed by and for musicians
and media artists ___ _ _
____ ___ _ _ http://lab.dyne.org/DyneModules
=== new dyne:II core features:
- - - it is a multiuser system, private data can be encrypted
- - - it includes all compiler and development tools needed to build dyne
- - - you can easily modify the system, pack a new CD and redistribute it
- - - it has advanced thin client functionality, booting from usb and net
- - - it's modular, so you can easily add and combine different software
- - - it's slick and snappy like the preceeding dyne:bolic, even better ;)
=== upgrading from version 2
To upgrade just replace the dyne/ directory with the new one, or run
the CD and answer yes when prompted.
To upgrade your nest to encrypted the easieast way is
- backup your home data on the harddisk outside the nest
- create a new encrypted nest overwriting the old one
- import manually your data into the new one
=== upgrading from version 1
Upgrade from version 1, or not? here is an overview of reasons:
- better usability and stability, support for more devices
- possibility to run from usb and solid state devices
- ability to run in thin-client setups
- cryptographic protection for your privacy
- gathers more software and can be customized easily
- version 2 is not running on XBOX game consoles
- version 2 does not include the OpenMosix clustering system
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: FOR ACTIVISM IN CRISIS AREAS
____ __ _ _ http://www.linux.com/articles/61665
We imagine improvised expressive devices like a CD that turns your PC
into an on line streaming studio. Imagine a mob that creates a traffic
jam. Think of the religious policeman in London, the konfused kollege
kid and the jealous dentist in Baghdad and the jailed blogger blogging
on in Cairo. Building autonomous networks in extreme conditions.
Streamtime uses old and new media for the production of content and
networks in the fields of media, arts, culture and activism in crisis
areas, like Iraq. Streamtime offers a diffuse environment for
developing do-it-yourself media. We focus on a cultural sense of
finding your own way in the quagmire that is Iraq, and its
representation in the global media. We should not try to change
politics in order to foster cultural change; we should support cultural
manifestation in order to force political change.
___ __ _ _ http://streamtime.org
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: AUTOMATIC CRYPTO AUTONOMISM :::
A public presentation of our privacy protection mechanism was held at
the Ars Electronica Symposium 2007 - here are the slides:
__ _ _ http://bricolabs.net/directions/goodbye_privacy
People have the right to protect their privacy as much as their freedom
It is important to keep in mind that noone else than *you* can ensure
the privacy of your personal data. Server hosted services and web
integrated technologies gather all data into huge information pools
that are made available to established economical and cultural regimes.
Since version 2.4 dyne:bolic supports strong encryption of your /home
private data with Linux dm-crypt i586 optimized Rijndael hashed SHA256,
to provide an efficient and user-friendly tool to protect your
bookmarks, addressbook, documents and emails by carrying them back with
you, protected with a fairly strong cryptographic algorithm.
A passkey to read your data is stored inside a file, which is also
protected by a password. It is possible to keep everything with you on
a small usb stick, still being sure that the data won't be easily
recovered in case you loose it. You can also give the passkey
protecting your data to a friend, to make the data unaccessible until
you meet again, which can be useful in case of tricky transports.

=== ROLL THE GEEK DRUMS - tell Slashdot about the dyne:II release
dyne:II development reached a sufficiently advanced stage of
development to be reviewed by the geek community worldwide.
We provide unique features as strong encryption, docking and nesting
still they haven't been acknowledged by the larger geek audience...
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: DEVELOPMENT HISTORY
The dyne:II core has been compiled from scratch by Jaromil and Smilzo
in 2005. During 2006 Jaromil completed a full rewrite of startup,
nesting, docking, configuration and sdk scripts, aided by the
experienced testing of Aymeric Antonios and Chun of Goto10.
The new foundation of the dyne:II core opens up the development to more
people, providing a modular packaging system for software collections
and the possibility to customize the liveCD with your favourite
applications. So it is born Pure:dyne, as the first dyne:II
customization focusing on real time audio/video processing with pure
visit the Developers Lounge -> http://dev.dynebolic.org
We salute and support all development done outside the capitalist
empire, to produce and distribute low power and affordable computers.
We look forward to support chinese dragons and simputers, solid state
workstations and all kind of 100$ laptops. In fact, we are there
already, the next step in this development will be adoption of a
cross-platform build environment to cover all kinds of hardware around.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: BIG UP \o/
First of all salutes and great respect to the many developers who have
written software included in dyne:bolic: a long list of names that is
impossible to include here, you'll find information about them inside
the CD and in the documentation of each software.

-Screwed up the rt_readin_tag fix by adding the wrong file. Big thanks to
"edu" for reporting the problem so quickly.
Dear mailing list users,
As some of you might have noticed, the lists on linuxaudio.org have
gone silent for two whole days. This incident was due to a crash of
the mailman process. The exact causes remain as of yet unknown, but
will be investigated.
Please accept our apologies for this disturbance.
Snd-ls is a distribution of Bill Schottstaedt's sound editor SND.
Its target is people that don't know scheme very well, and don't want
to spend too much time configuring Snd. It can also serve
as a quick introduction to Snd and how it can be set up.
Snd-ls also serves as base code for the San-Dysth softsynth
(http://www.notam02.no/~kjetism/sandysth/) and the Snd-rt music
programming language (http://www.notam02.no/arkiv/doc/snd-rt)
Changes 0.9.7.12 -> 0.9.8.2
-The rt_readin_tag startup bug is finally fixed. Thanks to Josh Lawrence,
Luke Hammon, Martin Rumori and Renick Bell for helping me finding it.
-Improved the build system a bit.
-Guile >=1.8.0 is now required to build and run Snd-ls.
-Fixed bug that caused snd to fail starting if no previously used
soundfile was opened during startup.
-Updated Snd from 8.4/12.9.2006 to 9.3/30.7.2007. Many important fixes.

On behalf of the entire Rivendell development team, I'm pleased to announce
the release of Rivendell v0.9.82. Rivendell is a full-featured radio
automation system targeted for use in professional broadcast environments. It
is available under the GNU General Public License. From the NEWS file:
*** snip snip ***
OVERLAP Transition. A new transition type, called 'OVERLAP' has been
added. Operation is similar to that of a SEGUE, except that audio from
the finishing event is not faded out, but will play at full volumne to the
end of the event.
Scheduler Integration Enhancements. A number of additions have been
made to allow for greater control and integration between Rivendell and
third-party scheduling tools. These include:
Music Log Reconciliation. Additional data fields have been added to the
Music Log parser to allow for proper Electronic Log Reconciliation (ELR)
to be configured for Music as well as Traffic logs.
It's now possible to schedule voice tracks from imported Traffic logs by
means of the 'Insert Voice Track' string setting in
It's now possible to insert a Log Note from imported Music logs by means
of the 'Note Cart String' setting in RDAdmin->ManageServices.
RDImport Options. A new '--title-from-cartchunk-cutid' switch has been
added to RDImport to allow title data to be extracted from CartChunk CutID
field of imported files.
Dependency Changes. As of this release, the LibRadio and LibRHpi packages
are supplied 'built-in' as part of the core Rivendell distribution. Thus,
it is NO LONGER NECESSARY to install these packages separately. As part of
this process, a new utility called 'RDHPIInfo' (formerly the 'RHPIInfo
utility in LibRadio) has been added.
Bug Fixes. A major emphasis of this release has been to fix as many known
bugs as possible. See the ChangeLog for details.
This version of Rivendell uses database schema version 141, and will
automatically upgrade any earlier versions. To see the current schema
version prior to upgrade, see RDAdmin->SystemInfo.
As always, be sure to run RDAdmin immediately after upgrading to allow
any necessary changes to the database schema to be applied.

a quick update for the ladspa filters broken out of nova:
- Changed plugin names, using "Nova " as prefix (to distinguish the
filters from others with similar names)
- added new plugins: Nova Low Shelf Filter, Nova High Shelf Filter, Nova
Low Pass Filter & Nova High Pass Filter
- changed unique ids to official ones
- fixed initialization bug (big thanks to olaf hochherz)
compile-time dependency: >=boost-1.34 (array, foreach, and mpl), scons,

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
i just releases some filters as ladspa plugins, that i originally wrote
for nova, so that they can easily be used from any ladspa-aware
the filers are:
Low Shelf Filter
High Shelf Filter
- based on a mitra-regalia filter topology (like the 4-band parametric
eq filter plugin by Fons Adriaensen)
- up to 16 cascaded steps
- double-precision internal sample representation
- smooth interpolation in case of parameter changes (2205 samples, 50ms
