I just tried this on a new install of DietPi with allo gui. Was this supposed to leave a file called sound.sh on my system. It didn't.

It should place /usr/bin/Sound.sh: https://github.com/dynobot/Linux-Audio- ... all.sh#L13

So you should be able to call it from command line via Sound.sh command.

Audio systems in Linux are terrible. You’ve never known true pain until you’ve tried to set up a recording or broadcasting workstation running Linux. I did, twenty years ago, and nothing has changed since. This wasn’t really a problem when Linux was either used in server spaces or some nerd’s battle station, but now we have small single board computers that everyone uses and wants to turn into a modular synth. Welcome to paintown, because the Linux audio stack is terrible.

For the past ten years, [Dynobot] has been working on improving audio in Linux. This is a decade of reading manuals from IBM and Oracle, and a deep knowledge of how to adjust settings so audio actually works. All of this work is now combined into a single script that improves everything. This means the priority of the Audio group is changed, the thread priority is better, the latency is better, and for anyone who wants to set up a local streaming service, the network latency is better. It’s not everything, and there’s no mention of recording multitrack audio, but we’ll accept the baby steps here.

Seems the new correct network address of the tutorial is:

https://github.com/tml3nr/Linux-Audio-Adjustments

Had problem finding it at first with original adress posted in first post of thread.

User changed from dynobot to tml3nr, so you need to edit the url in basic-install.sh as well or it won't work because of a 404

Fork from https://github.com/brianlight/Linux-Audio-Adjustments? I'm confused now :lol:.

But https://github.com/dynobot/Linux-Audio-Adjustments exists regularly as well with newest commit (no 404). I'd stay with the original repo as long as even the contained links/scripts contain all "dynobot".

But I guess @Edward can make things clear :).

Wow thanks I just stumbled onto this and will definitely install it in the near future.
Thanks for putting it out there

I just had a quick browse through your install script and had one small request
instead of

Code: Select all

[[ -f /etc/security/limits.conf ]] && mv /etc/security/limits.conf /etc/security/limits.conf.bak
maybe incremental backups to avoid
install *2+ overwrites the original file
if something goes wrong you have two broken files

Just an idea.
Thanks it really looks good.

Or even better: Use /etc/security/limits.d/audio_adjustments.conf and leave limits.conf untouched?

At best open an issue or do a PR on the repository :).
