AV-Linux is a
versatile, Debian-based distribution featuring a large collection of
audio and video production software. Additionally, it also includes a
custom kernel with IRQ threading enabled for low-latency audio
performance. AV Linux can be run directly from a live DVD storage
device, though it can also be installed on a hard disk and used as a
general-purpose operating system for everyday tasks. AV Linux is a
Linux-based operating system aimed for multimedia content creators.
Available for the i386 and x86-64 architectures with a kernel customised
for maximum performance and low-latency audio production, it has been
recommended as a supported Linux platform for Harrison Mixbus.
The system is built on top of Debian, and was originally made with remastersys. Versions prior to, and including, version 6 were 32-bit only, running a 32-bit Linux kernel with the IRQ threading and rtirq-init patches activated by default. For computers with more than 4 GB of RAM there was a PAE version available. From AV Linux 2016 onwards, there are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions available. Window management as of version 6.0.2 is handled by the Xfce Desktop Environment. Previous versions used the LXDE Desktop Environment.
It is possible to boot AV Linux from either a live CD or a hard drive. Audio playback and routing is handled by JACK (for advanced audio operation) or ALSA (for basic audio operation). Most any audio interface compatible with FFADO is usable out of the box.
