I went to nightlies to fetch the debug version of Ardour 6.9 and downloaded Ardour-6.9.0-dbg-x86_64.run. When installing I am warned that
WARNING: GCC4/5 libstdc++ ABI Mismatch
Ardour was compiled with gcc4, your system uses a newer version of the
standard c++ library. Plugins on your system may not load or plugin-UIs
may cause crashes.
I didn’t get this warning while dealing with any of the 6.8-versions, nor with the 6.9 from the official download. There were some packages updated recently, but I don’t know how to tell when this particular package was last updated.
Should I just proceed anyway, or are there better paths to follow?
Not sure if I’m looking in the right place, but “apt show gcc” returns
That is for old systems with a libstc++4 (from gcc4, April 2015 or earlier). For systems since then with libstc++4 (from gcc5 or newer, like yours), you’d want Ardour-6.9.0-dbg-x86_64-gcc5.run, but as @ax11 mentioned it’s no longer available…
Anyway, a recipe how to trigger this issue, or a session that produces it would be useful.
When having a similar problem with that same error I didn’t find this. I have the same error too but for me (in Windows) it appears to not finalize the midi region that I record while using jack sync.
link here to my related problem:
Yes I can tell nothing bad happens, except that the recorded midi stays in a limbo state and I can’t keep it with jack enabled. There’s probably a workaround but with what I’ve tried I couldn’t get the recorded midi region to stay permanent. It would stay colored “red”, and would disappear after disengaging the recording. I’m thinking the transport state change is what’s not allowing that region to close properly (for lack of a better word). I’ll probably be able to narrow the problem down more.
“YAY!” I finally managed to reproduce the error message by accidentally bumping the USB cable of my interface, causing a very short disconnection and reconnection. In other words, a user error… Ardour froze.
Some time has passed by, but I seem to remember intentionally disconnecting the interface becuase I needed to change workplace, thinking that putting the laptop to sleep while moving it would work. However, when trying again Ardour merely freezes, without the error message. But then it was a longer disconnect period.
