11     The LinuxSampler library (liblinuxsampler) and its applications are
12     distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (see COPYING
13     file), and may NOT be used in commercial applications without asking the
14     authors for permission. Also note that liblinuxsampler and its applications

18     Description
19     -----------
20    
21 schoenebeck 579 LinuxSampler is sampler backend, thus server-like console application. It
22     provides a TCP based network interface with a custom ASCII based protocol
23     called "LSCP" to control the sampler and manage sampler sessions. You either
24     have to send commands manually to LinuxSampler, e.g. by connecting via
25     'telnet' or by using 'netcat' or you might want to use a graphical user
26     interface (frontend) like QSampler.

31     Requirements on Linux
32     ---------------------
33    
34     o A low latency enabled kernel
35     (see http://www.linuxsampler.org/faq.html#dropouts).
36     o At least ALSA and optionally JACK and their respective development
37     (header) files as MIDI input and audio output drivers.
38     o libgig and its development (header) files for loading Gigasampler
39     format files.
40 schoenebeck 654 o libtool
41 schoenebeck 579 o If you are compiling from CVS you need to have the autotools installed
42 schoenebeck 654 (autoconf, automake (>= 1.5)).
43 schoenebeck 697 o If you want to generate the liblinuxsampler API documentation you
44     need to have Doxygen installed.

47     Compiling on Linux
48     ------------------
49    
50     a) Compiling and installing directly
51 schoenebeck 654
52 schoenebeck 579 The general procedure by calling './configure && make' on the source's
53     toplevel directory will compile and 'make install' as root will install
54     LinuxSampler on your system.
55 schoenebeck 654
56 schoenebeck 579 Note: if you are compiling from CVS you have to explicitly call
57     'make -f Makefile.cvs' before doing the above procedure. This will
58     generate all autotools managed build files.
59    
60 schoenebeck 697 LinuxSampler itself is a library called liblinuxsampler. You can
61     generate the API documenation for liblinuxsampler by explicitly calling
62     'make docs'.
63 schoenebeck 654
64 schoenebeck 697
65 schoenebeck 579 b) Creating Debian packages
66    
67     Simply calling 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b' from the source's
68     toplevel directory will compile and build the Debian binary package.
69     The Debian package will be placed one directory above the source's
70     toplevel directory (thus ../).
71    
72 schoenebeck 654
73 schoenebeck 579 c) Creating Redhat packages
74    
75     You need to have the rpmbuild tool installed and properly configured to
76     create RPM packages. To create the RPM packages do the following:
77    
78     * Get .spec file generated by ./configure and edit it as appropriate.
79    
80     * Copy the source tarball to "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/SOURCES" directory,
81     where <rpmdir> is dependent to the system you are using. For SuSE
82     <rmpdir> will be "packages", for Mandrake <rpmdir> is "RPM" and for
83     Redhat / Fedora <rpmdir> always equals "redhat".
84    
85     * Build the rpm(s) by invoking 'rpmbuild -bb <specfile>' from the
86     command line.
87    
88     On success, the resulting rpm(s) can usually be found under the proper
89     "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/RPMS/<arch>" directory.
90

92 letz 364 Compilation on OSX : Stephane Letz (letz@grame.fr)
93     --------------------------------------------------
94    
95 schoenebeck 654 The compilation on OSX currently uses an XCode project.
96 letz 364
97     - Download and install the JackOSX package (www.jackosx.com)
98    
99     - In the "osx" folder, possibly manually edit the version.h to change the version number
100    
101     - In the XCode project, build the "LinuxSampler" target
