Fedora Jam Installation

Is Fedora Jam still available? I don’t see the Lab (.iso) available on the Lab page any more. Is the groupinstall option still available? I am at least interested in installing JACK on my system. Many thanks!

Fedora Jam seems to be discontinued.

I have not yet setup Jack on any of my systems, but here are two first hand guides that may help…

http://jackaudio.org/faq/


Also https://github.com/JupiterBroadcasting/GetJacked. Maybe take a look at the jack-setup and the get-jacked scripts.

The option itself is there, but I don’t see any specific Jack group.

You can see the list of available groups like this:

sudo dnf group list

And to see info about groups of interest:

sudo dnf group info 'name of the group here'

You can find all your information here, and get and downloaded ISO :

Install it via DNF is another thing, You can install the group via DNF too:

sudo dnf groupinstall "Audio Production"

but what I get is a dependency problem,

This two packages are broken

ams x86_64 2.1.2-2.fc30 fedora 415 k
jamin x86_64 0.97.16-18.20111031cvs.fc30 fedora 578

No match for group package “ladspa-swh-plugins”
Error:
Problem 1: conflicting requests

  • nothing provides ladspa-swh-plugins needed by ams-2.1.2-2.fc30.x86_64
    Problem 2: conflicting requests
  • nothing provides ladspa-swh-plugins needed by jamin-0.97.16-18.20111031cvs.fc30.x86_64
    (try to add ‘–skip-broken’ to skip uninstallable packages)

I install it the group exclude those packaged:

sudo dnf groupinstall "Audio Production" --skip-broken
Installing Groups:
 Audio Production                                                                         
Skipping packages with broken dependencies:
 ams                            x86_64 2.1.2-2.fc30                          fedora  415 k
 jamin                          x86_64 0.97.16-18.20111031cvs.fc30           fedora  578 k

I also suggest how you have an FAS report a bug, against that group:

I’ve also found this:

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/18/html/Musicians_Guide/sect-Musicians_Guide-Using_JACK.html

It’s for quite an old version of Fedora, but it can be still useful. At least skimming through – but not blindly following! – may provide some useful info.

Many thanks, all. These will help.

Just an update – the bugs mentioned by hhlp have been reported by others and assigned for action. Thanks again; there is a lot of good information and help you all have provided me with.
