" Too many levels linked..."Note: Every time I run RK I see messages like:This didn't happen before, I think. So maybe it has to do with the fact that I changed recently RK's MIDI listening channel to 16, instead of channel 1 by default. So maybe this issue has to do with Rakarrack not taking the configuration. I've checked configuration file when running without gui and it is what I configured, just reading it in a text editor, it's the same as with gui.Hello again.I've experimented some curious behavior in Rakarrack (RK). It behaves different when I call it the same way (command line parameters and configuration) but adding parameter "--no-gui".
When I start RK with GUI it reacts (I can see lights in buttons and hear the incoming signal with effects applied) when I switch on/off effects with my pedalboard via MIDI, but If I use it without gui it doesn't respond to any switching (you can here the incoming untouched).
... or something like that. I supposed that it was because of having RK's configuration directory linked with a symbolic link to another place in the file system where It is placed, but I tested with just the directory not linked and messages are still there.
Note2: I also thought that it had to do with lack of free harddisk memory available on root partition, or with Raspberry PI lack of resources, but I guess that if it works with GUI it should work without given that it should have more resources available.
Thanks in advance.The message is exactly this:
Failed to create secure directory: Too many levels of symbolic links
It seems that in no-gui mode RK just "listens" to MIDI on channel 1. I can change programs with MIDI on channel one, but no changes when I try to switch on/off individual effects on channel 16.
