GO LIve
« on: 19. February 2017, 01:26:05 »
Hi Martin or anyone else who can answer;

I am thinking of trying GOLive and have a few questions.

1.Can I run it on a computer that has Windows already installed? As long as Windows doesn't start, can I safely just turn the computer on and off as you describe?

2.Can I run it on a computer that has GrandOrgue installed in Windows?

3.In the bootable USB stick install, what about other software? I like to run KXProject for audio, would I still be able to do that? (there is a Linux version of KX)

4. You say the MIDI is not implemented in GO Live. I don't understand this, it's useless without MIDI. Can you clarify?

5. Is there detailed documentation for GOLive anywhere? I'm not finding any.

Thanks,
Mick
All the best,
Mick

Yes - but you need to keep windows seperate. GOLive requires its on partition(s). Don't mount Windows partitions to keep them seperate [if Windows is shutdown (not hibernate), you many temporarily mount a windows drive - but don't forget to unmount before stopping GOLive]

GOLive does not event notice your windows installation - the live installer might just suggest to mount your windows drives.

Pointer to the linux version?

"The kX Project is an independent development project, focused on providing free WDM Audio Drivers for kX-Compatible sound cards."
Linux has not WDM driver model.

GOLive is intended to be a "as-is" ready to use preconfigured solution. Its based on openSuSE Leap 42.1, but it is different (eg. no displaymanager, systemd user sessions, ...).
If you want something flexible/configurable, start with a normal linux distribution.

Pointer? GOLive supports MIDI (A real world example: http://mps-net.de/orgel/seite/include.php?path=forumsthread&threadid=910)

There is not much documentation. It just keeps GO running and does not offer much other things.

PS: A GOLive update is overdue - GOLive will get the persistent device name feature by running in a terminal

Hi Martin.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I didn't see it sooner, I don't seem to be getting email notifications from this forum, which I will look into.

Mick
All the best,
Mick

I've had GO live on a usb stick running nicely, but I've added some other sample sets, and have been able to run them instead of the simple set included for GO live.
Haven't had enough time to follow up properly yet, (Easter services and choir rehearsals etc!), but I tried plugging same usb stick to a different machine and it didn't quite boot correctly, so I need to sort that out!
However, I think it's promising..
Thanks to all the people putting the work in!

I doubt, that this causes boot issues - but using one stick on multiple machines might cause trouble, because eg. the saved settings have the audio interface of the other machine configured.
