I have been using Ardour for about 4 months to edit a weekly podcast. Once I learned how it all worked, it has been AMAZING and worked flawlessly.
I recently updated Ubuntu Studio to 21.04 with little thought. Tonight I tried to edit this week’s podcast, which is actually a Snapshot from the last edit, and Ardour keeps crashing.
We record every 2 weeks and then I make 2 podcasts from that one recording. Tonight’s edit is largely setup, just a few things here and there and it’ll be done, but I can’t get Ardour to open EXCEPT if I uncheck real time scheduling in qJackCTL.
I read that as a solution somewhere online, but I don’t know why it works. I am able to open the podcast and edit it, but what is real time scheduling and why is this breaking now?
I feel like when I started using Ardour I had to add my user to the audio group with real time privileges, maybe with the update, that got wiped out. I don’t remember how to do it. Does that sound like the thing that could be breaking it all?
Additionally, since I contribute, I have been using the latest version of Ardour, 6.6. Now I notice that Ardour 6.6 is in the repo for Ubuntu Studio 21.04. Could that version be causing a conflict with the version of 6.6 I have been using?
I’ve been using Linux for about a year and am no expert, so I’m a little stumped on how to proceed.
Here are 2 error messages I received that might help explain what is happening.
Thanks for any insights you can offer.
