SL built from source - No MIDI

Post by sremington »

Hello All,

I don't know if my issue is just my ignorance or if I missed something when compiling from source. I just built SL from CVS HEAD on a Debian box and am dipping my toes into trying to get MIDI talking to the engine. The only problem is I don't see anywhere to make my MIDI connections. There is nothing showing up in the JACK MIDI connection screen or aconnectgui that I can connect to.

Did I miss enabling something when compiling or am I overlooking the obvious? Someone please hit me with a clue-by-four.

I found my own clue-by-four to hit myself over the head with.

I didn't have the proper ALSA development files installed before compiling. For Debian based distros you need the libasound2-dev package installed before compiling to get MIDI support.
