xwax

Post#1 by djt » 30 Nov 2015, 21:05

Hi all,

I'm trying to make xwax running on my laptop, I have three packages :
celt-0.11.3-x86_64-1ponce.xzm
jack-audio-connection-kit-0.124.1-x86_64-1ponce.xzm
xwax-1.5-x86_64-3_slack.xzm

First problem :
activate "name of the package" works till I reboot
install "name of the package" / did none (or bad things I don't know, I'm so noob for that).

Second problem :
Once launching xwax by xwax -l . -a hw:0
I get a ALSA open: No such file or directory
Failed to open device for capture.
root@hostmane:/home/user# find: './.gvfs': Permission denied

By the way... I have no idea about what is ./.gvfs

Third problem :
I would have a clean installation of jack starting at boot time, how to proceed?

Thanks by advance for your patience.

Welcome to porteus forum xwax djt.
First problem :
activate "name of the package" works till I reboot


Do you know about the persistant feature of porteus? How did you install porteus?

Other interrogation, missing package maybe, try:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:/root$ su root
Password: guest

root@porteus:~# usm -u all
root@porteus:~# usm -g gvfs

 The following items were found.
 Choose an number to confirm. 
 ctrl+c to quit

1) gvfs-1.16.3-x86_64-2.txz
2) gvfs-1.16.4-x86_64-1gv.txz

Pour ce qui est de démarrer jack, il y a moyen d'utiliser un script qui irait dans autostart. Quelle est votre environnement bureau (kde, xfce ...)? Vous connaissez la commande pour faire démarrer jack?

Translation:
To start jack, you can use a script to be located into the autostart folder. What is your desktop environment? Do you know the command line to start jack?

All modification I do are persistant (file creation, status modification of rc.sshd for example, etc...)
But impossible to install packages persistantly.

J'ai installed porteus on two computers :
Partitionning one partition ext4 with boot option and another as linux swap then
Copying folders /porteus et /boot at target hdd root launch as root user /boot/Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com

On one of both, I've no installation and persistance problems.

I've mate, and I'm discovering Jack.

If you have mate, the best thing is to keep with the english communication. It would be nice that you modify your preceeding posts in conformity to the english language, and make a fusion of your two last posts. Alas, I work mainly with xfce and kde.

fullmoonremix is a specialist of audio installations. He should come to the rescue, and if not you could send a pm (personal message to him). However, in the meantime you can have a look at jack audio linux command line as keywords for duck to go or google web searchs. See:
http://en.flossmanuals.net/ardour/ch015 ... on-ubuntu/

Code: Select all

qjackctl&

À bientôt,

I installed it as I said :

Porteus software modules, .xzm files, go in the /porteus/modules/ folder. Is that where you saved them?

Even not in boot time jackd doesn't start.

I typed : jackd -R -d alsa -r 44100
and I got : jackd ALSA: Cannot open PCM device alsa_pcm for playback

Something else is already running on alsa device.
Does porteus starts esd or something else at boot time?

cliexec cheatcode for jack has to be included into the syslinux bootloader instructions:
open the file /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg

Code: Select all

LABEL PORTEUS
MENU LABEL Graphic mode
...
...
Append initrd initrd.xz changes=/porteus cliexec=qjackctl&
See my first post.

Do I realy need it?

Sure qjackctl will face the same issue if another sound server is already probing my sound cards.

But i'm gonna try.
