Hey guys,

     Thanks for the replies. This morning I tried reinstalling it without ALSA, which allowed me to open the program but without sound. Then I rebuilt my kernel modularizing ALSA, where previously I had only installed the drivers. Then I rebuilt lmms with ALSA support, then with the /usr prefix. Both of these newest ways produced a new error in the console, while opening the program without audio capabilities.


could not set realtime priority.
Couldn't create MIDI-client, neither with ALSA nor with OSS. Will use dummy-MIDI-client.
which: no x-www-browser in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/opt/bin:/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/4.1.1:/usr/kde/3.5/bin:/usr/qt/3/bin:/usr/games/bin)
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:864:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave


My system is built with the -midi flag enabled so it should have integrated program support, I suspect that the problem is ALSA as well because it also gives me errors with the gkrellm sound scope plugin saying

Can't open ALSA monitoring.
Look for an "ALSA lib" console error message.

Maybe the problem could be that I don't have sdk? but during configuration it only gives me a warning that I won't be able to use the mallots portion of LMMS, not that the sound won't work. I guess I am going to try to dissect ALSA to see if I can't get to the bottom of this. If anyone sees anything I am missing I definitely appreciate the feedback.

Thanks,

Nick

Also, I don't know if it is related, but: gentoo is a distro where the
prefix is /usr, you must pass set the prefix to /usr during your
configure. Like so:

./configure --prefix=/usr

Hope this, or disabling alsa, fixes the problem.

Are you using the latest versin of LMMS (0.3.2)? Looks like your ALSA is
somewhat broken... try to disable ALSA-support by passing --without-asound to
configure and install again
