I know this is more a kernel/slackware config issue but if anybody can
help with this....
I recently patched my 2.4.31 to the ck real time and chose the
right chip set for alsa (emu10k1), however now the sequencer does not
start! So Rosegarden has a hissy fit when I start it. I do have a
version of alsa that is greater than 1.0 so permissions should not be
the problem. However... might a chmod on /dev/sequencer help? Here are
the current permissions which seem correct.
eric@...:~$ ls -l /dev/sequencer
crw-rw--w- 1 root audio 14, 1 2003-08-29 00:47 /dev/sequencer
I have audio going and the card I am using is the sblive value ct4830. I
had the sequencer going before but make menuconfig did not give me any
options other than the sblive emu chip set. Might my only option be a
Slackware reinstall and then a patch pl with the Con Kalvas set? Or can
I just mess with modules and get the sequencer to load? My modules.conf
file is blank.
Here is the current setup;
eric@...:~$ cat /proc/interrupts
0: 1690676 XT-PIC timer
1: 2894 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
9: 12032 XT-PIC usb-uhci, usb-uhci, eth0
10: 75736 XT-PIC EMU10K1
14: 13763 XT-PIC ide0
15: 41370 XT-PIC ide1
As you can see the right chip is compiled in the kernel... why the heck
the onboard sequencer is not available is beyond me. It was working
before the kernel patch! Now I have realtime audio recording and play
back, which is great, but no midi (which some might think a blessing in
disguise)...the only problem is that this really throws Rosegarden for a
loop... it takes for freaking ever to load and crashes without a usable
sequencer! Most likely because it cannot run asfxload anymore, and I
cannot get at settings to stop it from trying to load a soundfont! A
royal pain in the butt to say the least.
