2012-08-27 Thread jimmy

 Once you have a low-latency kernel, check related
 configuration in:
 
    /etc/security.d/limits.conf  , or 
 
    /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf
 

Oops, I meant:

   /etc/security/limits.conf  , or

   /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf

Mine had at least:

@audio   -  rtprio 70
@audio   -  memlockunlimited
@audio   -  nice  -10


it means your userid, which start jackd, needs to belong to the groupid called 
audio.

I think in Debian, the /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf portion is done by 
the package manager when jackd2 is configured to use realtime priority.  But 
you need to check the userid that starts up jackd belongs to the audio group.  
The command groups should list all the groupid's that the current user 
belongs to.

This is the low-latency configuration portion of a pre-compiled low-latency 
kernel.

You can check to see similar configuration done within the Musix liveCD 
environment.

Again, once you understand all the numerous steps and things which need to be 
in placed, you can configure any Linux distro to do similar thing, but each 
distro may have done things slightly different.  If any of those are out of 
placed, you may not get Linux MIDI to work, or may have numerous problems like 
no sound, latency (out of sync, long delayed note) issues, skipped notes...

Like the others, I offer my sympathy for what little it's worth.

I've tried a variety of distros form Mandrake, to Slackware and derivatives,
but always seem to come back to Debian. I now have a two text files, one with
step-by-step instructions on a cold install to my preferred 'office' setup, and
the other a similar one for my DAW.

I install the basic image *without* desktop etc. then load in just the bits I
want. It is actually much quicker than you'd expect - especially when you
realise that apt-get -install synaptic will magically drag in most of X too :)

[Rosegarden-user] Audio segments not showing their contents (waveform)

 Confirmed.  I've looked at this one more than once, but I've never managed to 
 figure it out.

I had that problem never with 11.04 but with 12.04 there is no audio
segment at all showing content. Bad for fine-alignment.

Something must have changed since then.

 I think XFCE is a fair option for people who were happy with the
 previous generation of desktops and are quite content to watch history
 pass them by.

Of course, this is a problem if those people are developers, since
they end up not testing their software in the environments that most
people actually use. Recent reports of problems with RG under Ubuntu
Unity, which no RG developer really knows how to respond to, are a
case in point.

For my part, these days, most of the software I write is (sadly) used
on other platforms more than on Linux -- this does at least mean I get
to develop on Linux as a sort of neutral platform that I can align
more to my own preferences and habits than to anyone else's. In fact,
I am probably as happy with it now as I ever have been.

I use Arch Linux, which has a rolling update schedule without any
numbered releases. It's worked well for me. They seem to be getting
more and more ambitious in the sorts of changes they include in
rolling updates, which is sometimes problematic -- this year there
have been three updates requiring significant manual input -- but it
has never yet actually broken anything for me, it always just refuses
to update until I go back and read the instructions. If you don't mind
reading instructions, and remember to do so, it's fine. It has the
benefit of clarity, it's generally easier to fix than Ubuntu (or other
operating systems) if it does break.

 Sorry to hear your upgrade didn't go well, Michael.  I've had a few things

That's interesting -- I was put off KDE4 very quickly when it first
appeared, simply because of the ugly putty-like theme it used by
default, and I probably never gave it the time it really deserved.
It's good to hear from people who have found that it all works out for
them. I'm happy at the moment with XFCE4, but alternatives are always
nice.

 I pulled the development snapshot 12981. It's not fixed. It draws a
 horizontal line but no waveform. Sometimes it draws nothing.

I deleted ~/.config/rosegardenmusic and now the audio tracks are
displayed fine.

I tried Musix-2.0 live and installed it when rosegarden just plain worked out 
of the box, also installed Ubuntu-Studio but haven't tested it yet, seems 
promising. 64studio bombed on reboot twice so something in that one is broke, 
anyway with the other two I should be OK.

So thanks for you help one more time. I'll probably back later with small stuff 
because unless I move to Debian full time I will still want to set up Suse like 
a studio.
