rtirq-init is an important package for low latency audio system configuration.
The current version has a 2021 version and regular updates: https://www.rncbc.org/drupal/node/2163
Problem 1. the version in the repositories is chronically outdated, from 2015(!): https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=default§ion=all&arch=any&keywords=rtirq&searchon=names
Problem 2. RNC releases the source code and .rpm's, but they follow different naming conventions than the version found in the Ubuntu repositories (Debian/Ubuntu appends *-init). I have tried building from source in the past and the difference in naming conventions broke system dependencies. So there is some sort of modification/configuration or dependency reconciliation that I need to do for other apps that depend on "rtirq-init" and not "rtirq"
Problem 3. I would like to provide an updated package version for the community, but have never done this before.
- What are the instructions for building the script for Ubuntu from source?
- How do I follow the correct naming conventions so the package doesn't break existing dependencies? Specifically, in Ubuntu/Debian it is packaged as rtirq-init, not rtirq. Will this workflow resolve this issue: https://askubuntu.com/a/411799/672975 as well as #1 above?
- Where or to whom do I submit it once it is built? Is this question relevant: https://askubuntu.com/a/16456/672975 What would be the most preferable course/workflow in this particular circumstance?
