View Full Version : [ubuntu] problem starting darkice

January 26th, 2010, 12:08 AM
Hi I'm getting the following error when starting darkice on my ubuntu machine

Using config file: /etc/darkice.cfg
Using JACK audio server as input device.
Using POSIX real-time scheduling, priority 98
Registering as JACK client darkice-14039
DarkIce: LameLibEncoder.cpp:75: lame lib opening underlying sink error [0]

I installed darkice with lame and jack support, I had to compile it as the one in the ubuntu repo didnt seem to support jack, jack could not see it. lame is installed and I think i have all the libraries needed (suggestions welcome). Jackd is running and i control it with qjackctrl. Password and mount point for the icecast server are fine, i searched the internet and the error seems to be that the connection isn't possible due to password but that isnt the case. What else can i check?

this is my sound card:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

It'd be happy to send /etc/darkice.conf if you would like to have a look but the only thing that's relevant is that I'm using jack and not the sound card for the input and jackd is running.

thanks in advance

if your password is definitely right check you have the right port.

Also make sure your connecting to the right version of Icecast and it is running. i.e The header should be [icecast2-0] for Icecast2 and [icecast-0] for icecast1.x
