japa trouble

Hello:

I've just yum updated my main ccrma box to include a new ccrma kernel
(thanks!) and new versions of jaaa and japa.

Now, when I start japa, it runs for about four seconds and quits, at
which time I get 1(2) xrun(s). This happens consistently.

When run within the command line, it says simply "illegal instruction,"
after having exhibited the same behavior.

Oddly it runs normally on my laptop with the same updates.

jaaa runs normally.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks,

Michael

sound issue update

Well, looks like the sound issue is hardware related.  Below is my 
result using the verbose command for aplay, which starts with "Playing 
WAVE . . .".  My daughter reports she does not get that, but does get a 
truncated report that shows file playing.  We're now going through steps 
of opening case and checking to make sure all connections of hardware 
are correct, and then will try another sound card.

What processor are you running on?
I'll check the build, most probably the new version is building for p4
class machines and you have a processor that is missing one/some of the
instructions it needs.

I rebuilt a new version without the -march=pentium4 default flag, it
should work on all processors (I hope), albeit probably slightly slower.
Let me know how it goes...

Both machines on AMD, albeit different versions. 

The one that did NOT work with japa:

vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 6
model           : 10
model name      : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3000+

The one that DID work with japa (in 32-bit mode):

vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 15
model           : 4
model name      : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+

Is p4 your default target when building these applications? What about
kernels? 

I've been building my own ardour for a while now. Maybe I should
consider the same for additional "critical" stuff I use. Do you
recommend this, or only when there is a specific problem like I've
encountered with japa?

Hmmm, strange, I would have imagined this one would have worked.

No, it is normally what is default for Fedora as a whole (requires at

File-browser & nm-applet

After resent, 2 days ago, update nm-applet claims to already running. 
The file-browser runs with no connection to the file system, trying to 
kill it repeatedly does nothing and my desktop is totally useless, no 
Menu or icons.
The 2 problems seam related. and have tried to re-update.
Luckily FF and TB spawn automatically.
All updates are CCRMA. FC5
Anybody else experiencing this and/or have a fix.

Keep up the good work.
Thanx Mitch

What are FF and TB?

I don't think I follow what's happening. 
Could you describe the problem in more detail?

If you do a "top" do you see a process using a lot of cpu or other
resource?

He means after a recent update - two days ago.

These must be firefox and thunderbird (email client)
