Thanks for your explanation Nedko. It is clear to me that you see D-Bus
as the best practical solution at the moment. But that you do not
necessarily stick with it for always. You are open for discussion
which is good in my opinion. Others seems to think that D-Bus is not
the solution for an session handler for Linux audio. It doesn't have to
be bad to have different opinions or different ways to solve a problem.
Nedko, is LADI an project of your own, or are you willing to collaborate
with other developers who might have interest in the project? Do I
understand it right that characteristics of LADI are still open for
Maybe it aint that bad to have two types of Session handlers for Linux.
The LADI approach and another approach without D-Bus. It's not bad to
have choice as user and maybe someone needs the features of LADI and
others features of more minimal session handlers.
Till now, LADI seems to be the only project that has reach an status so
that it actually works and is useful for musicians. Other projects seems
to be ideas on paper, nothing practical useful yet.
As a user I'm hoping that LADI will become an success, cause at the end
we really need an workable session handler. On the other hand I also
hope that people like Fons, Bob, Torben and David are able to release an
session handler without D-Bus. They have proven to have good ideas and
I think it will be good to have as much as consensus and especially
collaboration as possible. It would be good if others join the LADI
project I think. But I can't say which project goals are somewhat close
to the LADI project goals. Someone said that Torbens ideas could be
implemented or used in LADI in some way maybe. Then it would be good
maybe, to have a good (privat) discussion between the developers (at
least Nedko seems to say he stands open for that).
And what about the other ideas? Is there a chance that David, Fons, Bob
and others could find consensus between each other for a non D-Bus
solution? I think everyone would agree that collaboration should be
Today there is only one choice and that is LADI, so I'll test that first
and hope it works good enough for me so that at least I don't have to
launch all different applications again and again. It would be a big
breakthrough in Linux Audio imho. And then wait till an non-D-bus
solution appears, and see if that really works better...
