Full Version: "Failed to find JACK audio-server"

Hello. I am a rookie on Linux and MUSE. I have programming experience though. I run Fedora 17.

I have downloaded and installed the JACK2 audio-server. I have compiled and installed it via these instructions. When I try to run MUSE however, it wil fail to find the JACK audio-server. From then on, the audio won't work in the whole system until I have rebooted it. Then Rhythmbox will play ok again, but when I start MUSE again, the whole thing goes down again. Maybe it's because I compiled JACK multiple times?

Can anyone help me out here? I want to make some music! <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Ofcourse you do! <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
Sorry for keeping you waiting..

Where did you get MusE? If muse was preinstalled on fedora it is very unlikely you need to build jack, MusE should already depend on a Jack version.

Basically, if you compile your own version of a low-level software like jack you need to compile own versions on all software depending on that part.

If you didn't already I think you should uninstall your selfbuilt jack and install MusE using yum.
Something like:
yum install muse

Hopefully you have already found a way
