Frustrations, in order. The first three conspire to stop me playing and making music, which is the reason I've installed 64studio. I have forced the Audiophile 2496 soundcard to be device 0 but it still turns up as device 2 about 20% of the time, knocking out sound from movieplayer or iceweasel. JACK will connect Rosegarden, ZynAddSubFX and Hydrogen and will start playing MIDI drums and bass (not D'n'B) but then within a few minutes produces distorted sound, error messages "subgraph starting at rosegarden timed out (subgraph_wait_fd=25, status = 0, state = Finished)" Rosegarden .rg file is saved but when reloaded the next time the MIDI channel numbers are not kept by the track parameters and have to be specified everytime. Screen resolution has changed itself from 1920x1080 to 1600x1200. This isn't a frustration, just an oddity. Hardware is from 2002, 1.4GHz P4 and 384MB RAMBUS memory and Nvidia 64 Riva TNT model 2.
