1. Introduction

This document describes how to install and configure ALSA, JACK, and JAMin on various GNU/*/Linux systems (taken in account in alphabetical order). We encourage you to pick the distro that is most close to yours at once.

1.1. Acknowledgements

The JAMin developers are Steve Harris, Patrick Shirkey, Jan Depner, and Jack O'Quin. Ron Parker is the principal documentation producer. Many other people have contributed to the design/debug phase. Three that immediately spring to mind are Alexandre Prokoudine, Mark Knecht and Yuri V. Sedunov. There will surely be a score of others (how about you?).

1.3. Feedback

If you like this or hate it or are indifferent or want to make corrections or are going to the Virgin Islands on vacation and would just like to take Jan along all expenses paid, drop him a line at Jan's email and he'll take the appropriate action (let's see...suntan lotion, sunglasses...). Any distro specific changes would be welcome and will easily be added to the site.
