-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 reading through our policy once again , two (unrelated) questions (so please forgive me for addressing both in the same mail) sprang to my eye.
#1 "1.6. midi" there are ideas about using /usr/share/debian-multimedia/midi/ and/or /etc/debian-multimedia/midi/ for specifying (default) midi connections. did anybody ever implement that? i couldn't find anything like that on my harddisk (which i believe has plenty of multimedia packages installed :-)) #2 "1.4 sound input/output selection" it clearly says: "the applications should not start jack/... daemon themselves". however, if the application is using the jack API call "jack_client_open()" without special flags, this will automatically start the jackd server if it is not already running. so the question is, whether applications should indeed avoid starting jackd (e.g. by passing the "JackNoStartServer" flag to the jack_client_open() call) or whether the policy is a bit unprecise here and (should) only request(s) to not try to start the daemon if it is already running. i don't know when this part of the policy was written, it might be well before the advent of the jack_client_open() function; in the olde days there was only jack_client_new() which would _not_ automagically start the jackd if needed. mgfdad IOhannes  http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/Policy -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.11 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iEYEARECAAYFAk3kvZ0ACgkQkX2Xpv6ydvQQ0QCdFdXFRTMni4U5i4UunLwCYr/2 P5IAn2EzWns18Lh7ErHvK7+Z93ZJo9BU =VAjA -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
