The LinuxSampler Project
There are several subprojects, each having its own license terms, as follows:
[*] LinuxSampler is licensed under the GNU GPL with the exception that USAGE of the source code, libraries and applications FOR COMMERCIAL HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE PRODUCTS IS NOT ALLOWED without prior written permission by the LinuxSampler authors. If you have questions on the subject, that are not yet covered by the FAQ, please contact us.
The following figure illustrates the compile time / linker dependencies.
gigedit | (mandatory) | V QSampler ~~~(optional)~~~> libgig JSampler | A | | | | (mandatory) (mandatory) (mandatory) | | | V | V liblscp LinuxSampler jlscp
Or again in words: you have to compile and install libgig before being able to compile and use LinuxSampler. You don't need libgig for compiling and using QSampler, but it's definitely recommended. You cannot compile nor use QSampler without liblscp though. As QSampler is communicating with LinuxSampler via TCP, there is no linker dependency between them, but of course you still need to have LinuxSampler installed to be able to use QSampler (either locally or on any other computer in your network). JSampler is also communicating with LinuxSampler via TCP, so there is no linker dependency between them either. JSampler requires jlscp though. You have to compile and install libgig before being able to compile and use gigedit.
We currently provide pre-compiled binaries for the following operating systems:
Additionally there are the following platform independent Java executable packages (note: you need to have the Java Runtime Environment 6 installed to be able to execute these software packages on your computer):
Source code packages of the latest official releases:
This project's CVS repository can be checked out through anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following instruction set. When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key. There are currently seven subprojects in the LinuxSampler project, pick the line of the respective subproject you want to checkout from below:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/var/cvs/linuxsampler \ co libgig cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/var/cvs/linuxsampler \ co liblscp cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/var/cvs/linuxsampler \ co linuxsampler
You don't need to checkout the sources again later on, just for keeping track to the latest development version. For updating to the latest CVS version you can simply run the following command at any time from the checked out source directory:
cvs update -d -P
You can also browse the CVS repository.
