View Full Version : faulty softsqueeze startup with linux (kubuntu)
the main bug that bothers me is that sometimes softsqueeze starts and sometimes it doesn't. Today's build 7.3.2 - 24679 works fine.
Othertimes the damn thing tries to start, but dies immediately.
Flirefox says that it uses javaws for jnlp files. (What is javaws? I am guessing that it is the java webstart tool?)
Can anyone shed some light on this even with the limited information that I have provided?
.jnlp files are indeed Java web start related. I'm sure some of the readers could make educated guesses about what goes wrong if you provide:
- the OS you're working on (i.e. Windows XP or linux ubuntu 8.0.4)
- the Java version you're working with (try "java -version" on the command line)
- any (error) messages the system produces
- whether you have other processes using the soundcard (mostly important on linux with alsa)
Without some info it will become a long list of guesses.
thanks for the reply
1. kubuntu 8.10
2. java version "1.6.0_10"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-b33)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b15, mixed mode, sharing)
3. Which error messages/ java or sc7 and where should i find them.
4. no other processes running with alsa.
I'm running unstable and softsqueeze still starts.
I,ve just run kaffeine and softsqueeze fails. I stop kaffeine and it still fails. re login and softsqueeze works again.
I tried the same with Amarok and no problems. Either programme will work and gives up the driver when play stops or the programme closed. The problem with kaffeine is that once it gets hold of the alsa driver it won't release the driver unless i close kaffeine completely.
I am really chuffed at this partial answer. Soddin' obvious really as Amarok and kaffeine used to have the same problem. Amarok has now been fixed in my build. (1.4.10 (using KDE 3.5.10)
i'm off to Kaffeine to try to sort this out!
PS The Coral "in the morning" loops almost seemlessly as a test track!
