Jack Audio ( jackd2 ) with Debian on Beaglebone..

I have what i think are reletively low requirments for JackAudio, just to sample 1 incoming line at low speed… I just can’t get this to work on the beagle bone and i have no idea why… Does anyone have any suggestions…

frazera@debian:~$ jackd -p2 -d alsa hw:EVM
jackdmp 1.9.9

Limiting the number of ports ( -p2 ) means that it won’t try to lock down too much memory… ( if i just leave it to the default it will try to lock 82MB

Not so cool to answer your own question, because it suggests you possiblity did’nt do enough reseach in the first place… However after posting here, i did find someone who had solved the problem. Cut and paste on this for your informaton if you are interested.

As for the problem with debian’s jackd on ARM. It was a bug in jackd2
itself. fixed meanwhile. The package in ‘debian/experimental’ should
work: http://packages.debian.org/experimental/jackd2

debian testing & sid are currently frozen pending the debian/wheezy release.

add
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
to /etc/apt/sources.list (or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/experimental.list)

run sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -t experimental install jackd2
that should do the trick.
