Looking at the CCRMA website a couple of months ago, it appeared that
Fedora 10 was the bet initial install for CCRMA. That's how I installed
it on my quad core AMD 64 machine. But now it keeps reminding me that
Fedora 11 upgrades are available. Should I let it do the upgrade ? or
would it be better to do a fresh install ?
I'm about to try assembling a new machine and I am having trouble
figuring out which soundcard would be best for a PlanetCCRMA install. It
seems like the ones best supported by alsa are no longer available
readily. Do you have a preference ?
Your paper on 'noiseless computers' is excellent. Could you recommend a
parts list that you would prefer to use if you were configuring a new
machine today ?
