AV Linux is a free shared downloadable and installable snapshot ISO image based on Debian/GNU Linux pre-configured to facilitate use as an Audio and Video production workstation OS. It is really intended to just be that simple, an AV production system prepared and shared by a single user with some practical experience in setting such things up. It is not really intended to be a full “Linux Distribution” in the proper sense. As its sole maintainer I do this in my spare time because Linux has many positive attributes as a Content-creating OS. AV Linux is provided ‘as-is’ with absolutely NO guarantees.
Read All About It:
Before downloading AV Linux it is essential to read it’s User Manual, Most FAQ’s and many specific operational details including Installation are covered in it’s 130 illustrated pages. The User Manual is also included within AV Linux and can be found in the ‘Accessories’ Menu.
– AV Linux uses Systemback as an installation method and therefore inherits it’s limitations, at the current time UEFI boot is only possible with 64bit.
– Be aware the AV Linux LiveISO will also automatically mount hard drive partitions for Read/Write Access, this is NOT malicious in nature it is simply a convenience feature to facilitate accessing media files to demo with the Audio/Video Applications, a side benefit is it also makes AV Linux a very useful tool for data rescue. After evaluating the AV Linux LiveISO you may want to check and reset the permissions of your hard drive partitions if you do not proceed with an install.
Distribution of the AV Linux ISO files would not be possible without the generous assistance of the following people: Anahata, James Lawrie and Jeremy Jongepier.
