Thank you so much for the midi clock add-on, it works great and my other equipment is now happily pounding and humming in sync with qmidi arp and qtractor!
QJackCtl turns out to be an excellent midi patchbay, performing midi merge, split, and routings from one midi or jack interface to another without any effort, a must have for every bedroom studio Pandora!

Good to know someone it's making good use of this tools.

It would be great to see a video with that setup in action, ;)

I once again have problems with smplayer, it whines about some libqjackc++ or something. Same as last year, I suspect it had something to do with qjackctl which I recently updated?

first thanks for providing this package!!

did have an issue:
it seems the way libjack is updated breaks some packages?? (I have problems with audacity)

as far as i can see it copies over libjack to /usr/lib, but it has a dependency on on a newer libstdc++, so anything that does not include this newer stdc++ will break?

dunno what a good solution would be, but this doesn't feel like the best..
(why is it necessary to overwrite system libjack??)

Because system libjack is very old, it's not installed by default and the newer version i compiled refuses to work directly on the PND.

So far, the only program affected was Mplayer, so the best solution would be to update them, compiled with then newer libjack.

ok, have you asked notaz about maybe compiling the newer version of libjack for the firmware, this might work as there are not a lot of dependencies??
(also might be worthwhile to figure out why it wouldn't work from the pnd..it shouldn't be impossible)

hmm ... about updating the rest of pnds, these would then get another prerequisite.

I think fundamentally its not a very clean solution to copy things over, moreso with incomplete dependencies...wonder what the 'correct/preferred' way to distribute libs with pnds is...

No, but if i did, the libstdc++ version would be different, as i'm compiling with Codeblocks command line PND.

It's not, but it's the best solution i found in this case.
The rest of the PNDs i do, use the preferred way when it comes to distributing libs.

I think it may work if an updated libjack compiled against the firmware libstdc++ is included in the firmware, since links against libstdc++ are typically forward compatible
(but maybe this should be checked with people more knowledgeable than me ;-) )

Don't use codeblocks for stuff aimed to go the firmware, gcc is too new for that. Prefer CDevTools that use the same gcc version as the firmware one to avoid incompatiblities. But you may miss some dependancies. Still, it can be usefull to just build your updated JACK with CDevTools.
