Hi Andy


We have 2 CAs running Galicaster and LectureSight on 18.04, for a while now without issues (Datapath VisionLC cards).


There’s a weird thing with the colours on the VUMeter that are reversed, but that’s just cosmetic.

Hi Andy,

I've been running 18.04 in production since last summer on just over 30 machines with Magewell cards and no issues (just the colours on the vu meter as Stephen mentioned, keep meaning to take a look at that but nobody has complained yet!)

Now there are finally some datapath drivers I'm planning on moving the rest of my machines to 18.04 so i don't need to maintain 2 OS versions in production.

On a related note, has anybody seriously looked at making a snap for galicaster and using ubuntu core? I've had a quick look enough to see that it should be possible but not got much further. Might also be worth checking out flatpak as that is more widely supported.

Thanks both. I found similar good results but it's alway worth knowing if real usage is going ok

I went as far as thinking about making it a snap. I'd welcome this and willing to help out
