Jack server won't start

Postby IVXCVI on Wed Dec 30, 2009 11:57 pm

I can't seem to get Jack to start under any circumstances.

Here's the output from the log:

Anyone know what's wrong? I can't seem to figure it out.

I don't have the time right now to research this, but I know that someone got Jack to work recently
Search the forum for Jack - don't add my user name as a search criteria - not sure if I was in that topic
You did not mention anything about your system - hard to help if you don't

Oh damn that was the wrong link. Sorry. Yeah I entered the #jack on irc.freenode.net and got help there. I'm starting Jack through jackd -R -d alsa in the console. For some reason starting the GUI doesn't work. I also had to make sure I was a part of the audio group.

To get real time support I had to do this:

Real-time scheduling

JACK requires real-time scheduling privileges for reliable, dropout-free operation. The server requests these privileges when running with the -R option.

Most recent distributions use PAM to manage the permissions of users on a relatively granular level. If the file /etc/security/limits.conf exists on your system, it is using PAM. In order to configure PAM such that normal users can run jackd with realtime privileges make sure the following lines exist:
@audio - rtprio 99
@audio - memlock unlimited
This assumes that the users that are allowed to run jack are members of the group "audio". If you want to grant this right to one specific user you can replace @audio with the username of that user. Usually the limits.conf file contains some instructions on how to use it. Note that after modifying limits.conf and/or changing your group membership you must logout and then login again before any of this will take effect.


from: http://jackaudio.org/faq.

If anyone has similar problems just log into the irc channel for more specific help. There is usually someone there and they know what they're doing.

Thanks for your attention Husse.
