ALSA Sequencer konnte nicht als Client geöffnet werden.

Hello Rui

It's a strange world - I've just upgraded my laptop from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 and now Qjackctl gives a nice little error message. uhm

20:23:53.370 Steckfeld deaktiviert.
20:23:54.115 Statistik zurückgesetzt.
20:23:54.117 ALSA Sequencer konnte nicht als Client geöffnet werden. Das ALSA-MIDI-Steckfeld wird nicht verfügbar sein.
ALSA lib seq_hw.c:457:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Cannot connect to server socket err = Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Cannot connect to server socket
jack server is not running or cannot be started
no message buffer overruns

Pressing start and jackd starts in realtime without any further problems - other than there are no midi connections...

Any ideas?

Unfortunately there is no alsaconf in the Fedora's alsa rpms

Cheers, Simon

The ALSA sequencer kernel module might not be loaded properly, or at all. Make sure it is load at boot time, in a way equivalent to this:

modprobe snd-seq-midi

Thanks Rui

I added modprobe snd_seq to /etc/rc.local so that it loads on boot...

What is the difference between "snd_seq" and "snd-seq-midi"?

Cheers, Simon

Well, AFAICT, on previous kernels at least, the ALSA sequencer module was called "snd-seq-midi", maybe nowadays it is named just "snd-seq" ... Anyway, it should be a matter of configuring properly your Fedora sound system, at the sound-card device level, perhaps. Maybe there's an advanced configuration option or else? Or ask whom should know it better than me, re. Fedora: Planet CCRMA !

Cheers
