Fedora Installation Help

Hi y'all,

Can anyone recommend a responsive and responsible forum for installation help?

I've been flailing with the Planet CCRMA since about Fedora 6, modprobing madly to get my
Audigy recognized and trying (mostly in vain) to mediate between PulseAudio and Alsa.
In my early days on a screaming 600 MHz machine I'd fire up Ardour and 45 minutes later
it would still be trying to draw the first screen.   Mostly I just use Audacity, Hydrogen, and
Zynaddsubfx in Windows--because they work.  Recently I actually briefly got Jack to work
In Fedora 19 with Hydrogen and Zynaddsubfx--a major breakthrough for me which was soon
wiped out when I played a Youtube and I guess the flashplayer reset the audio to some
configuration foreign to Jack.

So I rashly decided to upgrade to Fedora 20 and see if they've fixed some of this.  The Live
DVD just put multicolored snow on the screen.  So I tried a Yum update and it neglected to
bring in the keys.  And then though I'd get the Fedora ice cream cone I'd get no login screen
and no terminal.  After I learned to append a "3" to the vmlinuz line in the grub script I got
my terminal and yum seemed to be chugging along but after I tried to update grub I only get
grub rescue.  Using that I identified the location of the carcasses of my long-defunct Fedora
10 and Fedora 11 installations and found my Fedora 19 and 20 installations, but at this point
I need some hand-holding because I am very near but still so far away.

Fwd: Grace only loads as root

Is your non-root user in the "jackuser" and "audio" groups? It needs
to be there to fire up 'jack'. Also, you may need to start up
'Qjackctl' before Grace.

Grace only loads as root

Hello everybody, new user of planetccrma repository here. (Thanks for the great work!)

I installed common music and the cm-grace package but I noticed that I can only start Grace if I run it as root. If I run it as a regular user it just closes immediately without showing any gui. Is this normal behavior?

If it is, than the problem is that Grace doesn't seems to see jack running (the opposite occurs with jack, i.e., i can only run it and load jack server successfully as a regular user).

When running Grace as root I get the following error:

Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
Cannot connect to server request channel
jack server is not running or cannot be started

Thanks for the help!

cpufrequtils, kernel-tools problem on fedora 19

Hello list,

I am attempting to use the cpufrequtils set of programs (i.e. cpufreq-set, cpufreq-info, etc) and am having difficulty with the kernel-tools package I installed form planet ccrma. I'm using Fedora 19. After installing kernel-tools and kernel-tools-devel, cpufreq-set and the others are not getting found.

My installed kernel tools:

  kernel-tools.x86_640:3.10.25-200.rt23.1.fc19.ccrma                                                          

My uname -a:

Linux her-box 3.10.25-200.rt23.1.fc19.ccrma.x86_64.rt #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Fri Jan 10 12:09:13 PST 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Reinstalling kernel-tools has not resolved this issue. Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers,
Bion

miniAudicle and Chuck: no sound

Hello,

I meet a problem with miniAudicle on fedora 20 64 bits.
I installed Chuck and miniAudicle.
Then, I started jack vai qjackctl, then I started miniAudicle.
miniAudicle appears in the qjackctl connections pannel and is correctly connected.
When I start an example script from the chuck examples directory, no sounds are played.
If I start this example directly via chuck, chuck is again correctly wired in qjackctl and sounds are now
correctly emitted.

Do I miss something with miniAudicle ?

Best regards,

YC

Stereo problem

Hi all!

i'm having troubles with my stereo output, the difference between the left and the right channel is almost imperceptible, it's not mono, but it's "almost mono". I'm running a fedora 19 planet ccrma, with a m-audio fast track ultra (this one).

I use pure data, but i tried with ardour an different software, the strange thing is that when i see the signal (i use QaRecord on the jack output, but i also have some audio meters on the master channel on pd) it is well balanced. I think this happens on the sound card, or maybe i have a trouble on the fedora sound setup. But i've tried without jack and with different audio servers and the result is the same. On the same computer i've tried with a different OS and the same algorithms on pd and the sound card responds normally,

any ideas?

best

agustin

Fedora 20 64-bit 3.12.5.-302.rt7.1

Hello -

Anyone out there have any experience with the latest CCRMA RT kernel on Fedora 20 ?  ie,

    3.12.5.-302.rt7.1.fc20.ccrma.x86_64+rt

installed with

    planetccrma-core-2013.12.19-1.fc20.ccrma.x86_64

On my HP Elitebook 8540w (Intel i7 <at> 2.67 GHz, 8 GiB RAM, nouveau nVidia driver), it works fine - I tested quickly with jack and Ardour, using the internal Intel HD sound card - but the computer freezes when I try to suspend, requiring a hard power-off to reboot.  I'm able to suspend and resume fine with the stock F20 kernel.

Not sure it's relevant, but it also throws kernel warnings with backtraces during boot-up, like these (from journalctl)

> kernel: WARNING: CPU: 2 PID: 858 at kernel/sched/core.c:2428 migrate_disable+0xed/0x100()

> kernel: WARNING: CPU: 2 PID: 858 at kernel/sched/core.c:2462 migrate_enable+0x17b/0x200()

> kernel: WARNING: CPU: 3 PID: 865 at kernel/sched/core.c:2428 migrate_disable+0xed/0x100()

some of which say the kernel is tainted (flags G W), while others say it isn't.  I don't seem to see those issues when I look at previous boots using the stock kernel.

I'd be happy to provide details, but first wanted to see if these are known issues...

Thanks!
Don

support for Fedora 20!

[do not reply to planetccrmanews!, that's only for posting news...]

Hi all, ho ho ho...
The first batch of packages built for Fedora 20 is available!

This morning I built the first 3.12.x rt patched kernel, just in time 
for this "release". It is based on the latest Koji build for fc20 and 
3.12.5-rt7. Thoroughly tested. Just kidding. It boots and seems to work 
nicely in one (1) laptop, my T61 test machine (which I upgraded 
yesterday with fedup). Hopefully it will be as good as the 3.10.x series 
has been (which has been superb in my experience).

Pointers to the repositories are, as usual, in the web page at:
https://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/

Start by installing the Planet CCRMA yum repositories as indicated.

Some packages are missing, but not that many. One notable absence is 
pd-extended (newer version!). Its lua code in pdlua.c is not compatible 
with lua 5.2 which is what ships with Fedora 20. A patch would be most 
welcomec!

Let me know if there is anything you need that was there in 19 and seems 
to be missing in 20.
Enjoy!
-- Fernando

PS: missing: gmorgan, pd-*, latest version of faust and assorted toys. 
Some stuff missing also in 19 but nobody complained: cheesetracker, 
fweelin, zyn, etc.

PS2: think about helping Brendan and all others by packaging or helping 
package audio software in Fedora:

Hey all,

the number one reason for me floating the audio spin was to get more
developers/packagers interested in Fedora. Waste of time it turned out..
Orcan has since toned down his contributions, but I'm sure he's amenable
to sponsoring new packagers. I'm just worried if I get hit by a bus or
something, which will leave us with no maintainership

At the present time, I'm maintaining 100+ packages - crazy. There are a
lot of ppl here who are capable, so if you have the time please step up

[Fedora-music-list] wine bug dssi-vst


Hi,

Using dssi-vst we can use many (not all) VST plugins on our Linux Fedora 
systems. Unfortunately several VST plugins that used to work fine stopped 
working since around Wine version 1.5.16 and up.

I reported it upstream and it has been confirmed by others:

 	http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32637

The reason I mention it is because I hope someone here might be motivated 
to do a proper regression test so that the wine developers can fix the 
bug:

 	http://wiki.winehq.org/RegressionTesting

I think the same bug also affects using VST plugins with Festige instead 
of dssi-vst.

I hope this bug will be fixed. There are some really good VST plugins that 
I use that don't work right now :-(

Who takes the challenge?
