The problem is exactly what the title says. I’ve just installed Ardour on my gentoo recording machine, and I’ve run into a rather serious problem. When a track is record-armed, and then I press record and play on the main transport controls, the whole screen freezes. After a few seconds, Ardour crashes and quits.
I ran Ardour on the terminal, and repeated the steps necessary to cause the bug again. When I did, the following message printed on the terminal repeatedly:
no space in Ardour-UI request buffer for thread unknown
After printing that at least enough times to fill up the terminal buffer, it finally output the following line:
cannot allocate memory for thread-local data: ABORT
So how do I fix this problem? I’d really like to get started recording with ardour, but obviously this bug is a rather serious impediment.
