Agnula turns to Red Hat Linux to develop a new distribution aimed at both professional and amateur musicians July 1, 2002

Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq: RHAT) is directly involved in Project Agnula (A GNU Linux Audio distribution), which is subsidised by the European Community, and will use the opportunity to create a new Open Source distribution based on Red Hat Linux. With its numerous professional and multimedia audio applications, this package will be distributed free of charge under the name ReHMuDi, which stands for Red Hat Multimedia Distribution.

Entirely designed within the concept of Free Software, this version will at the same time be easy to install and update, and will also offer all the tools required for musical creation and production, compilation and distribution.

This ambitious project, scheduled to run for 24 months, is being coordinated by the Centro Tempo Reale in Florence and implemented in close collaboration with acoustics and musical research centres, notably:

  • IRCAM, the Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Acoustique/musique in Paris,
  • KTH, Kung Tekniska H
