rt kernel and lmms

Postby LinuxForever on Wed Oct 01, 2008 5:52 pm

I installed “linux-rt” from synaptic, rebooted and installed lmms. Lmms can't find an rt kernel. Should I have installed the rt kernel a different way? Is there something else the rt kernel needs installed? How do I get lmms working? Thankx for any help.

I´m having the same problem as LinuxForever. Maybe tomorrow (time pending) I´ll install Audacious and see if it has the same problem.
Anyone who is into audio production and knowledgeable in Linux (I'm a noob) can help :?

LinuxForever: I did a complete Ubuntu x64 8.04.1 Install, On top I installed all the Ubusntu Studio packages including rt kernel. lmms runs OK, no errors,
Any ideas :?:

EDIT: :!: On Mint x32: If you run sudo lmms IT WORKS, no error messages, as root also works.
Must be something to do with permissions :?: (don't know if in Linux the concept is the same as windows)

ElQuia I don't know if it's a good idea to run a program as root. I looked at the lmms documentation but it doesn't have anything about running it as root. As long as it works though. May be I'll have the answers after I read the book for Linux From Scratch.

In regard to Ubuntu Studio, it's great for writing music. Until I understand more about the differences between Mint and Ubuntu I can only say use Ubuntu Studio as long as it works for you.

I can't figure out how to get the rt kernel and lmms to work right in Mint. There must be a secret to it.

In regard to permissions, lmms might be using the / partition instead of the /home partition to save files in. Or may be lmms has to be be run as root to work with the rt kernel. Really though, I remember lmms running in Ubuntu Studio without root permission. I don't know.

All OS's are like a work-in-progress. No matter how much one learns there's always more to learn.

I found this list of other audio distros of linux. I've tried 64 Studio and Dynebolic and I like Ubuntu Studio better.

Yep, I know. I was just trying to diagnose the thing ....

And thats a truth if I ever heard one :!: :lol:

I tried 64 studio also, in matter of fact I have it installed in a VM, but mmmmmm, I don´t like it....

The thing is I love Mint, it´s ease of use, it´s community, the interface, the sheer QUALITY of the work, obviously there are things that can be better, but as you say: all oses have that. Ask win users :lol: :!:

I´m trying out ubuntu, with the complete ubuntu studio package on top ... but ... it´s second best.

I´m going to wait for the final release of 64bit Mint, do a complete install, then (previous backups, always backups) do some tests with audio. Maybe the standard kernel works OK ... I don´t do audio production in the composing sense, I record audio from external sources and do some mastering and editing. Ill do the same tests on ubustu and after that I´ll try with rt kernel on x64 Mint, and see what happens.

Meantime, I´m using Mint for customers who want to migrate to Linux, (Main ed), and mint xfce for some older machines.

Thanks for all :D
