Jack, the cat and its tail...
I am currently trying to "jackify" my system with jackd and
I am also running some kaffeine, therefore the basic kde stuff
is installed (as less as possible). I am running openbox and slim...
The problem is: Kaffeine produces no sound.
Since Kaffeine uses xine I set ~/.kde4/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config
to use jackd (audio.driver:jack).
This results in nothing audible and the screen freezes after a short
Therefore I tried xine itsself...and patches ~/.xine/config according
to the above.
But this time xine prints at the commandline:
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.6.
(c) 2000-2007 The xine Team.
This system has no accessible HPET device (Device or resource busy)
I used fuser to get the name of the guilty....and gues who it is?
USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
/dev/hpet: mccramer 4221 f...m (mccramer)jackd
So .... I cannot use xine/kaffeine with jackd cause jackd is running?
The cat and its tail...
How can I circumvent this relly nice deadlock?
