a little general question for change :)
what are the "biggest" (performance) differences using PD on windoze or linux
i'm (at the moment) mostly interest on audio analyzing and visual creating (GEM)
This depends a lot on the flavor of window$ you're running,
on 95/98/ME, i can tell it's a total mess because
the scheduler is so unpredictable that PD
can loose control at any moment.
PD is coded on linux and then ported to win, right?
i will be still using PD on windose because of framestein...
Communication between Framestein and PD is made thru a socket,
so you can control Framestein from another machine running
Linux. I will be better for the frame rate in Framestein too.
btw. what are the minimum linux requirments for PD, thinking 4 (future) installations...
(any1 making a PD "optimized" linux distribution :)
depends on the patches you're using. I ran very simple ones
on a P200. You can always make a patch that crashes any hardware.
i'm installing redhat for starters, any know problems with PD+GEM ?
yes, graphic card, guys here may help, not me.
