AGNULA/DeMuDi has now an all-in-one bootable CD-ROM ISO image,
i.e. you just insert the CD-ROM in the reader, boot your machine and
follow the installation instructions.
After installation is completed you will get a fully working audio
system with ALSA automatically configured, a lowlatency patched kernel
optimised for you processor and all the applications grouped in a
rationale menu tree.
This ISO image is still in beta, but should be quite usable. You can
download it here:
And some brief instructions on how to install it can be found here:
