My name is Nick. I am running Gentoo-2.6 with KDE-3.5. I am not sure if this is the proper email address to try, but it's the only one I found in the readme. I am trying to install LMMS, but keep having the following problem:

The installation went smoothly, and there were no errors, but when I type lmms from user into the console, it kicks out the startup screen for a split second then gives

could not set realtime priority.
Unable to set hw params for playback: Invalid argument
Setting of hwparams failed: Invalid argument
lmms: pcm_plug.c:67: snd_pcm_plug_close: Assertion 'plug->gen.slave == plug->req_slave' failed.

If anyone could provide me with some insight on what the problem might be I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
