Hi all,

Sorry to bother you again with this. I’m running into the same problem again as before (see the latter part of the [LAD] jackd not using jackdrc… thread).
And apparently my last fix involved some magic rather than replicable logic… :-( i.e. the problem seems to have disappeared on that system, without knowing exactly why)

Now I am installing my jack client again on another fresh install of ubuntu 17.04. and a get the same error.

I have installed jackd1, to be exact, these packages are current.

jackd/artful,artful,now 5 all [installed,automatic]
jackd1/artful,now 1:0.125.0-2 amd64 [installed]
jackd1-firewire/artful,now 1:0.125.0-2 amd64 [installed,automatic]
libjack0/artful,now 1:0.125.0-2 amd64 [installed]
qjackctl/artful,now 0.4.5-1ubuntu1 amd64 [installed,automatic]

when I start my client jackd is automatically started but i get the error:

connect(2) call to /dev/shm/jack-0/default/jack_0 failed (err=No such file or directory)

By browsing the jack sources i found the message seems to come from libjack/client.c in server_connect()

peeking into the /dev/shm directory it seems /dev/shm/jack-0/default/jack_0 is briefly created,but disappears again, presumably just before the client is able to connect.

I have been breaking my head over this, but I really have no clue why this is happening, especially as this has worked fine in the past.

I would really like to know what could possibly cause this error and how to fix it.

thanks,
fokke

Does anyone have an idea what causes error?
I don’t really know what option to try anymore.

is the ubuntu package broken? should I build libjack myself?
Can someone with more knowledge of jack internals see a what's happening?
Is thus version of libjack somehow incompatible the the server?

your help would be highly appreciated!

cheers,
Fokke
