AV Linux 2018.6.25 ISO Update with UEFI Fixes Released!

Hi everyone,

AV Linux 2018.6.25 (aka “50 years of GMaq!”) has been released, I have entered a new decade today and want to celebrate with an improved AVL Release..

The April AV Linux 2018.4.12 release had a lot of improvements and updates with regards to the Audio and Video applications but some improvements needed to be made for systems with UEFI booting and systems with recent AMD Video display adapters not covered by SGFXI. I personally have no UEFI (or AMD) computers to test with and only could use VirtualBox for UEFI testing and thanks to bug reports from a few users and several fixes provided by our forum member ‘korakios’ I think many of the issues for actual hardware UEFI machines have now been addressed. If you have already successfully installed and updated AV Linux 2018.4.12 then you will not really need to be concerned with the updated June ISOs.


-New 4.16 kernel with full RT Preempt and improved support for newer AMD Video cards.
-threadirqs was accidentally removed from the grub boot options, now fixed.
-UEFI boots that failed due to missing FAT32 ascii modules should now be fixed.
-Unetbootin boot failures due to missing FAT32 ascii modules should now be fixed.
-Virtualbox Guest Additions will now be automatically removed on Non-Virtualbox installs.
-Cinelerra 5.1 (aka Cin) has a new functionality to support LV2 Audio Plugins (initial release, may require restart on first run).
-LSP Plugins are updated to 1.1.2
-Cleaned up wrong menu entry of ZynAddSubFX JACK multi
-Updated relevant info in the AV Linux User Manual.

A huge thanks to korakios for the work on UEFI improvements and trulan for the updated 4.16 kernels, thanks also to those who provided bug reports and tested ISOs, your time is very much appreciated!

The linuxaudio.org mirror up and running, Bytemark will come online sometime in the next few days.
