Musix GNU+Linux 3.0.1 Stable released!

Download from najval: MUSIX_GNU+Linux_3.0.1stable.iso (md5)

The development team of Musix GNU+Linux is proud to present version 3.0.1 Stable. This is a bugfix release related to installation fail due to lack of grub package. Also, now the ISO image is isohybrid, ie support boot from USB or DVD media.


For this version of the installable Live DVD/USB Stable we added some video editors like kdenlive 0.9.6, avidemux and cinelerra, added french and serbian language support, openoffice, solved some minor KDE desktop bugs… Musix 3.0 boots by default in LXDE, but you can choose the tailored KDE and IceWM desktops or the original fluxbox and openbox; os-probe was installed to detect other systems during HD installation. The Kernel 3.4.14-gnu-RT23 is compiled from linux-libre kernel source and deblobed to be 100% free as well as all software in Musix and operates in real time for audio and music production. For a full list of installed software, please see: package_list3.0.1stable.txt


Special mention to the developers Ariel Errera, Carlos Sanchiavedraz, Gilberto Borges, Daniel Vidal, Javier Llorente, Pablo Sastre, Pablo Lozano, Jose Vazquez Viader, Suso Comesaña, Mariano Ibaldi, Claudio Caldas, Martin Carr and Jacobo Najera (sorry if forget someone) to have accompanied the project during this 2013 and 2014 even with wide swings and the low availability of free time.

Musix GNU+Linux 3.0 is based on Debian GNU/Linux 7.2 «Wheezy»

Some useful information:

User: user

Pass: live

* site is only an archive of past versions, our new site is


* If you are new to music/audio on GNU+Linux, we recommend opening any of the .starter demos in the folder /home/user/demos/starters/ (right click from the file browser, Open With -> musixstarter)

* For newbies, we do recommend UNetbootin to create a Live USB, but if you want to install from USB to HD, please see «Installation» below.

Mailing list:


The recommended method is burning a DVD and install from there. If you dont have a DVD device and only can boot from USB pendrive you need to:

1) copy the ISO image to the USB memory:

cat file.iso > /dev/sdX

…usually /dev/sdb [warning, this will erase all your files on that device]

2) sync

(to flush  kernel filesystem buffers) and

3) just reboot from the USB pendrive and choose install.

Or refer to Debian installation for USB.


Known bugs from RC1 solved in RC2 and Stable:

There were some annoying bugs that didnt prevent use Musix at its true potential, these were: KDE warning about the loss of avant-window-navigator, the demos do not work from the LXDE menu because musixstarter not find the file «~ /. jackdrc «, KDE doesnt launch a network manager (nm-applet) at the start by default but is installed on the system, sudo does not work for graphic apps into Xorg (xhost +local:root), and some icons such as audacious2.desktop are ‘broken’; os-probe was needed to detect other Operating Systems during HD install: all these bugs were  corrected for the RC2 and Stable version.

TESTING version

There is the next Musix version masterized by Daniel Vidal, based on new kernels:


(you can also boot in english, portuguese, french or serbian)

    • Bien Darío: aún no sé si el problema radicaba sólo en la falta de GRUB en el LIVE o si había algún faltante más… es decir, quizá falte GRUB en lo que el instalador tiene como disponible a la hora de instalar… ya veremos en base a los reportes… gracias

      • Dario dijo:

        bueno, sin animo de ser molesto… intente instalarlo desde el dvd y se detuvo en una instancia del mismo. volvio a la pantalla deonde debo seleccionar qué hacer. cuando le doy que siga con la instalacion de grub me dice que voy a instalar en destino no limpio, le pongo que no y sale dandome opcion de instala sistema base y sistema. le doy sistema y se va a nomal o live. le doy normal y da aviso de fallo en la instalacion… lo intente en modo grafico y lo mismo. verifiqué el dvd y me dio error no sabe si de disco o el archivo Squash.fs… en fin me maree demasiado y decidi consultar con uds. que hago? seguro que hay algo mal en lo que estoy haciendo… espero por vuestra respuesta.

    Seems interesting, but I get a CPU detection error (failed) either on live mode (any of them) nor after installation (tried all of them). My config is:
    Gigabyte F2A75M-D3H // AMD A8-K5600 // 16GB RAM // PCI-E ATI X550 // WD 160 GB

    Please help!

    P.S. Could you please write the list of music software and plugins included in this release.

    He probado varias versiones de musix arrancandolas directamente sin descomprimir la iso utilizando grub. Me indica problemas con el modulo swap y lo soluciono pidiendole al kernel que no lo cargue. Cuando llego al login no acepta user/live. ¿alguna pista?

    I loaded musix onto a PC and entered username–user, password—live and it seemed to work OK. But nothing would save. If I saved something, it would be gone next time I logged on. Also, how do I become a super user? Thanks.

    I’m at a loss. I’m considering switching from Windows to Linux, but haven’t had much luck. I have Windows 8, I loaded MUSIX_GNU+Linux_3.0.1_Stable.iso from harddrive into Oracle VM VirtualBox to try Linux. I open it with username «user» and password «live». It seems to run but not really. Any files or directories I make disappear when I shutdown. I can run «sudo su» and it seems to work even though I get message «sudo: unable to resolve host musix». I use useradd to add new users, but they too disappear upon shutting down. File etc/fstab is empty so I can’t connect to a USB drive or CD drive. Pretty worthless. Am I missing some little thing? Is this a demo? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Excuse my ignorance. This OS is free or there is a cost. If so, what is the price? The software that comes installed Do you have to pay for them? Thank you
