Default Very puzzling bug

Below is a strange bug with Rosegarden, but I'm reporting it here as
well as they seem to be drawing a blank.


With V 1.7.0 while in record mode RG crashes spectacularly when it gets
a MIDI 'note-on' event. This happens regardless of whether the source
is my sound card (2496), or from a virtual keyboard. I haven't found any
other events that have the same effect. Mod Wheel, Pitch Wheel and
program change all seem to be handled correctly.

I have no problem with V 1.6.1 (so have dropped back to that for now).

I'm running in Studio64 V2.1 rc2 on a dual core Athlon.


Update.

I've been able to pin this down a little more. This doesn't happen with
a fresh install of debian 'lenny' but it does happen with 64studio V 2.1
- even if that is then upgraded to 'lenny'.

I'm wondering if maybe there is some KDE library conflict. It is very
odd that that Rosegarden 1.6.1 doesn't suffer the same crash.

Please be online for a while, I now will check out if it's the same with
my 64 Studio, this version of Rosegarden and KDE. The Setup is DX7 as
master Keyboard to an SWISSONIC USB-MIDInterface. To be continued ...

Here it is

I have a 64 Studio 2.1rc semi-upgraded to Lenny.

KDE is 3.5.9 (using KWin and not some extravagant WM)
jackd is 0.109.2-3
qjackctl is 0.3.2-1
Rosegarden is 1:1.7.0-1~etch1

Playing and recording a note-on-event is fine, but I've got another problem.

If my USB-MIDI is fine, the TerraTec sound card isn't fine. If the
TerraTec sound card is fine, the USB-MIDI isn't fine.

So I won't be able to make music at the moment.

I haven't the time to chek it out right now.


Cheers,
Ralf

The board is an ASUS M2A-VM HDMI with latest BIOS-Update, resp. I didn't
check the ASUS BIOS updates today.

I will be short in time for the whole month and especial right now. I
will test GNOME and vkeybd tomorrow. I can't use the TerraTec MIDI
because there's missing some hardware.

Try to install a complete KDE if you have the space on your harddisk,
even if you only will use GNOME or another DE/WM. Do this just to check
out if it has to do with libs.

As I said it's fine with my system, but I have another problem .

Day of the PSs:

"I have a 64 Studio 2.1rc semi-upgraded to Lenny."

It was a 2.1rc1 upgraded all the time, so I think it was also a 2.1rc2
upgraded to Lenny and after this some packages were changed manually.

Full acknowledge, but in this case there might be missing something. I'm
not fine with Linux, but there's no alternative OS I can use, because
I'm not fine with capitalists.

Install KDE by Synaptic, so you will get a history and you will be able
to reset your system, using the informations of the history.

------------------------------

Hi Ralf, ;-)

I think you have a full lenny upgrade here.
If my memory is right you did this upgrade before the
64studio lenny back-ports were available.
So I don't know what would happen if you enabled them now?

If you install kwin-style-crystal, gtk2-engines-spherecrystal
in Synaptic, search "crystal".
You will have the option in kcontrol to claim back large
amounts of desktop area if your screen resolution is limited.
(ATI driver).

The Plastic (default) theme window borders are massive
in comparison and you have no option to adjust them.

Cheers,

dave.

Hi Dave

yes and no.

Until now I never used Lenny backports and (security) upgrades but I
have done some reinstallings and installings without any Lenny
repositories, that might cause the troubles with Envy and USB-MIDI.

I didn't go on with the ATI. I get an advice from a Suse multimedia
moderator (a bragging penpal I often have troubles with), who alleged to
build his kernels himself and I especially told him that I've no AGP
port, and he told me he is using 5,- EUR NVidia cards that are PCI, but
he was wrong, the cards are AGP and I bet he never build a kernel
himself, he might do some patches, otherwise he should know what AGP is.
I stopped my work and searched for this card as an AGP version. Back to
me. I need a missing kernel module but until now I didn't have the nerve
to check out how I can install it.

For me the time has come, I will give a dam about graphics and about one
Linux for all needs. I think I will install a stable 64 Studio 2.1 too
and will make some music, instead of doing handicrafts for my Linux.

The screen resolution is fine. I can't change the vertical refresh rate
and 3D won't work because of a missing module.

There might be a way to get this module and to get 3D working but the
problem with the settings for the vertical refresh rate, has been the
same for my old hardware with a NVidia AGP card. With my old hardware
everything else has been fine and for Suse it also has been possible to
change the vertical refresh rate, but when using more than one kernel,
the way how to implement the 3D driver for several kenerls won't work
for all kernels.

Thank you, anyhow I'll take a look at the themes.

Cheers,
Ralf
