Hi All,


This is mostly for posterity as I got renoise working without really knowing what I did..  :huh:


It's been a while since I have been tracking and meantime I refreshed my Arch Linux box

and created a new user to get rid of all the cruft that had gathered over the years on my

home account with around ~50GB of stuff that have now sorted out onto another disk.  It's

the same install of arch Linux that I have been using for the last 5 years.  It's serving me well.


I deleted my old user and moved the interesting data elsewhere and created a new user

and installed the configuration from the old user as the need arose.  (vim, mutt, ...).  Today

I started renoise for the first time as my new user and it froze for some reason.  I have been

trying to start it with my previous config (that worked), i,e, the .renoise and ".renoise plugin server"

dirs and also without any config as the new user, but I cannot get it to not freeze.


I also tried running with and without VST_PATH and DSSI_PATH set, but still I get a renoise that

freezes while launching.  Pressing CTRL-c does not help and had to kill -9 it.


Then I ran renoise under strace with the config dirs present and VST_PATH, DSSI_PATH set

and it magivally started, I do not know why, maybe some kinf of race condition when reading



Now I will be tracking!  :walkman:
