21 schoenebeck 701 Description
22     -----------
23    
24 schoenebeck 579 LinuxSampler is sampler backend, thus server-like console application. It
25     provides a TCP based network interface with a custom ASCII based protocol
26     called "LSCP" to control the sampler and manage sampler sessions. You either
27     have to send commands manually to LinuxSampler, e.g. by connecting via
28     'telnet' or by using 'netcat' or you might want to use a graphical user
29 schoenebeck 937 interface (frontend) like QSampler (C++/Qt based) or JSampler (Java based).

34     Requirements on Linux
35     ---------------------
36    
37     o A low latency enabled kernel
38     (see http://www.linuxsampler.org/faq.html#dropouts).
39 persson 1652 o At least one supported MIDI input system (i.e. ALSA, JACK, CoreMIDI or
40 schoenebeck 937 MidiShare) and at least one support audio output system (i.e. ALSA,
41     JACK or ARTS) have to be installed, along with their respective
42     development (header) files.
43 schoenebeck 579 o libgig and its development (header) files for loading Gigasampler
44     format files.
45 schoenebeck 654 o libtool
46 schoenebeck 579 o If you are compiling from CVS you need to have the autotools installed
47 schoenebeck 654 (autoconf, automake (>= 1.5)).
48 schoenebeck 697 o If you want to generate the liblinuxsampler API documentation you
49     need to have Doxygen installed.

52     Compiling on Linux
53     ------------------
54    
55     a) Compiling and installing directly
56 schoenebeck 654
57 schoenebeck 579 The general procedure by calling './configure && make' on the source's
58     toplevel directory will compile and 'make install' as root will install
59     LinuxSampler on your system.
60 schoenebeck 654
61 schoenebeck 579 Note: if you are compiling from CVS you have to explicitly call
62     'make -f Makefile.cvs' before doing the above procedure. This will
63     generate all autotools managed build files.
64    
65 schoenebeck 697 LinuxSampler itself is a library called liblinuxsampler. You can
66     generate the API documenation for liblinuxsampler by explicitly calling
67     'make docs'.
68 schoenebeck 654
69 schoenebeck 697
70 schoenebeck 579 b) Creating Debian packages
71    
72     Simply calling 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b' from the source's
73     toplevel directory will compile and build the Debian binary package.
74     The Debian package will be placed one directory above the source's
75     toplevel directory (thus ../).
76    
77 schoenebeck 654
78 schoenebeck 579 c) Creating Redhat packages
79    
80     You need to have the rpmbuild tool installed and properly configured to
81     create RPM packages. To create the RPM packages do the following:
82    
83     * Get .spec file generated by ./configure and edit it as appropriate.
84    
85     * Copy the source tarball to "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/SOURCES" directory,
86     where <rpmdir> is dependent to the system you are using. For SuSE
87     <rmpdir> will be "packages", for Mandrake <rpmdir> is "RPM" and for
88     Redhat / Fedora <rpmdir> always equals "redhat".
89    
90     * Build the rpm(s) by invoking 'rpmbuild -bb <specfile>' from the
91     command line.
92    
93     On success, the resulting rpm(s) can usually be found under the proper
94     "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/RPMS/<arch>" directory.
95
