I am still pretty new to Linux but I already really love it.
It's a little faster than windows, prettier, safer, free, a lot of distros, ...
But I also want to work with audio on my computer. (Like I did on windows.)
I would like to use REAPER (I have a license so I really want this to work, otherwise the money was for nothing because I bought it when I still worked with windows.)
and also utilise Ardour and several other studio-ish apllications and VST-plugins (if this is possible).
I use a Line6 POD Studio GX as my audio interface/soundcard and my computer is 64bit.
First I cannot start JACK to begin with.
When I click start within QjackCtl I get this message:
22:10:50.704 /usr/bin/jackd -P89 -p1024 -t2000 -dalsa -dhw:0 -r44100 -p256 -n2 -s -H -MCannot connect to server socket err = Bestand of map bestaat niet
Cannot connect to server request channel
jack server is not running or cannot be started
22:10:50.724 JACK kon niet opstarten. Sorry.
22:10:51.834 JACK is gestopt met exit status=255.
(Sorry, I am a Belgian who speaks Dutch, it says:Bestand of map bestaat niet = File or map doesn't exist. , JACK kon niet opstarten. = JACK could not start up. and JACK is gestopt met exit status=255. = JACK has stopped with exit status=255.
My other problem is the fact that I cannot compile my wineasio driver.
I downloaded the wineasio ZIP file, extracted it and put it on my desktop.
Then I got the ASIOSDK from Steinberger and put the asio.h file in the wineasio folder.
But when I then go to my terminal: cd Bureaublad (=Desktop in Dutch)/wineasio and then type: make,
it gives me this message:
gcc -c -I. -I/usr/include -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/wine -I/usr/include/wine/windows -m32 -g -O2 -D__WINESRC__ -D_REENTRANT -fPIC -Wall -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wwrite-strings -Wpointer-arith -o asio.o asio.c

/usr/include/features.h:324:26: fatale fout: bits/predefs.h: Bestand of map bestaat niet
make: *** [asio.o] Fout 1
If someone could help me out/further I would really, really appreciate it!
And this my sound cliché but I really already have tried a lot,
I am already trying to make Linux work for audio production for about 2-3 weeks or so? (I had to install Ubuntu 4 times before it worked to my beliefs, at first I installed Wubi but that was really slow and doesn't has the security of Linux as a 'real' operating system + only a several GB, now I have my whole hard drive.)
