First “public” release for alsa-backup

For a long time, we’re using continuous recording tools to record our radio broadcasts. Many of these tools were homemade and alsa-backup is the latest project of this “serie” (after jack-backup and just-record).

alsa-backup can :

  • record several channels,
  • change record file according your naming policy (… without a blank),
  • run as daemon,
  • log into syslog,
  • stop record and retry after errors

And many other features are coming :) This piece of Ruby code is more flexible than just-record. It uses the awesome ruby-ffi library which allows to use C libraries with few lines of ruby code.

alsa-backup is available as debian/ubuntu packages on Tryphon’s debian repository. Source files are available in GitHub alsa-backup repository.

Debian packages for Phusion Passenger 2.2.4

The Debian packages for Phusion Passenger 2.2.4 are available on the debian tryphon repository. This time, I have been a little faster than John and his ubuntu packages.

But : these packages don’t include nginx support and the documentation is, for the moment, skipped.

librack-ruby1.8 under lenny seems very old (Mauro confirms the problem in his comment). I’m trying to backport a fresher release.

Démos Rivendell à l’Ubuntu Party à Paris

A l’invitation d’Olive (et de Solvik), il devrait y avoir moyen de faire quelques démonstrations de Rivendell à l’Ubuntu Party 9.04 à Paris le 16 et 17 mai.

Donc pour ceux qui sont intéressés par Rivendell et une solution libre pour la gestion d’antenne radio, rendez-vous à la Cité des sciences et de l’industrie ce week-end.

Les horaires ne sont pas bien définis, donc jetez une oeil sur mon Twitter pour en savoir plus … ou dans le studio d’OxyRadio où je risque de trainer (on se refait pas ;-) )

Dans tous les cas, les démonstrations seront basées sur ce survol des fonctionnalités de Rivendell :

Rivendell, Libérez votre antenne – format pdf

… et mon fidèle laptop sous Debian unstable, bien sûr :-°

Make nicer Rivendell (or Qt application) under Gnome

If you’re using Rivendell under a Gnome environment (like me), the Qt interfaces look like this :

If Clearlooks looks good for you, you can setup Qt to use Klearlooks. As you don’t have the KDE environment, this setup is manual but very easy :

Install needed packages :

sudo apt-get install kde-style-qtcurve gtk2-engines-qtcurve

Install this very minimal qtrc file into your ~/.qt directory

Restart rdairplay

Enjoy :
