Well, i have done some experiment. If i try to run kmid as root from a
terminal, i get the interface
but nothing else. just a few messages as follow:
DCOPServer up and running.
Each time i click to play come:
Player :: There are no midi ports !
And when i quit the program:
FOO:/home/dom/Desktop # kdeinit: Fatal IO error: client killed
kdeinit: sending SIGHUP to children.
kdeinit: sending SIGTERM to children.
Mutex destroy failure: Périphérique ou ressource occupé
sh: dcopserver_shutdown: command not found
I have take a look with ls and i get
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 jun 21 23:07 /dev/dsp ->
crw------- 1 dom users 14, 3 jun 21 23:07 /dev/dsp0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 jun 21 23:07 /dev/audio ->
crw------- 1 dom users 14, 4 jun 21 23:07 /dev/audio0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 jun 21 23:07 /dev/midi ->
crw------- 1 dom users 14, 2 jun 21 23:07 /dev/midi0
I'm very tired with this problem and i need my sleep. Have anyone a
suggestion or a clue to what i must prove to do?
