I thought, that Ubuntu Studio was the one, but we didn't really find something like a live-DVD for that. My question: If I'm right and it really is Ubuntu Studio, that I'm looking for, could someone recommend a good place to get a live-DVD.Ubuntu Studio has not published a live DVD in several years. However, the upcoming release, scheduled for late April, now in beta, has one. Daily build available here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/dvd/current/ The daily build is built for AMD_64 only, the final release, as well as the Beta1 (March 1st) will be available for several other architectures as well. I just booted yesterday's daily build on my laptop. jack started up readily, as well as Ardour. The Ardour release is 2.8.2, with a copyright date of 2009. Current release is 2.8.12 (sept 2011), so it looks like the debian & ubuntu packagers haven't kept up... AVLinux, which was mentioned by another, is only available for i386.
I use Aptosid, which is Debian Sid based and realy very stable (the Aptosid team do a lot of checking of Sid packages and have their own scripts that help filter out the Sid oddities. There's an RT kernel in Sid now, requires the PAE extensions so I haven't tried it out (my music systems don't support PAE).
