Serious problems with JACK in Multimedia 5.5
« on: September 30, 2018, 05:17:40 pm »
Installed SL Multimedia 5.5 and found JACK (essential for low latency audio work) completely inoperable.  Attempted to reinstall but to no avail.  Unfortunately my LINUX issue-sleuthing ability is limited so beyond reporting this bug I hope that other more capable souls can intervene.

projectm-jack   jackd     or jack?      jack is for ripping  see "man jack"


The following is for   jack    (funny guy in past named his ripper   --  jack the ripper  --actually not that funny).
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?dist=testing;package=jack      ##testing
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?dist=stable;package=jack       ##stable

     ## Note: you are not eligible to report bugs in the Debian base when using Sparky, but using the Debian Bug  Tracking System is a fantastic skill set to learn.

possibly  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=898075

1.  If you are in Sparky 5 and have limited skills - especially in sleuthing bugs -  I would strongly recommend going to Sparky 4. 

2.  (Only if your problem is for JacktheRipper) Install   inxi and post "inxi -A" and "inxi"  also post "apt-cache show jack"  ##Note:  to copy from terminal use Ctl-Shift-C

paxmark@raunes:~$ inxi -A

      ##Note Use the "sharp" button above to post code or use the xml tags.

If it is due to bug 898075 in jack (the ripper) then "apt upgrade"  "apt full-upgrade"  (as sudo or root)  should fix  jack   

But probably -

The following is for the low latency system - with jack as part of the name of many components  --  i.e  like jacks on an audio board. 
  jackd  - special daemon named jack. 
http://www.jackaudio.org/
.   
If it is due to the special low latency jackd environment not working maybe try
https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/start

You can take the following as harsh or as learning.  Your post did not (in my view)  report a bug.  For me, bug squashing involves bug reporting that gives enough info to aid in the squashing process.  We do not know your kernel, whether you are using a special low-latency kernel from elsewhere, etc .  In the future, more information.   

peace out

peace out.
