Everytime I start up Beast and try to playback, I get the following:
beast:BSE-Error:0: No Audio
beast:BSE-Error:1: No available audio device was found.
beast:BSE-Error:2: No available audio device could be found and opened successfully. Sorry, no fallback selection can be made for audio devices, giving up.
beast:BSE-Error:3: Failed to open PCM devices: Device not async capable
There is another thread from a couple months ago that has the same error, but no solution. Searching Google only turns this up from one of the developers of Beast:
and that'll only occour if the following code during /dev/dsp initialization
failed to execute:
/* to get usable low-latency behaviour with OSS, we
* make the device blocking, choose small fragments
* and read() the first fragment once available.
d_long = fcntl (fd, F_GETFL);
I'm not a developer so I have no idea how that ties into OSS, but thought I'd include that.
Here's my /dev/sndstat.
