AGNULA: A GNU/Linux Audio distribution


The AGNULA (A GNU/Linux Audio distribution, acronym pronounced
with a strong g) project, supported by the European Commission
under the Key Action IV.3.3 (Free Software towards the Critical
Mass) has started on April 1st and will last for 24 months
up to March 2004. The project is coordinated by the Centro
Tempo Reale in Firenze (
and has the following partners:

* IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique),
  Paris (

* Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Music Technology Group, Barcelona

* Kung Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), Music Acoustics Group,
  Stockholm (

* Free Software Foundation Europe (

* Red Hat France (

AGNULA's main goal will be the development of two reference
distributions for the GNU/Linux operating system completely
based on Free Software (i.e. under a FSF approved Free Software
license) and dedicated to audio and multimedia. One distribution
will be Debian-based (DeMuDi) and the other will be Red
Hat-based (ReHMuDi). Both will be available on the network
for download and on CD. In the second year the project will
also extend to hardware platforms other than PCs (e.g. PowerPCs,
64-bit architectures).

A new website ( is available with further
information on the project. Other announcements will be
posted on relevant mailing lists.
