I just updated to Fedora 38 and am having trouble starting the Supercollider server. Hopefully,
someone can assist.
When I initially tried to upgrade to Fedora 38, I was blocked from upgrading because the Package
jack-audio-connection-kit.example-clients had been marked as obsolete. I allowed the package to
be erased and continued the upgrade. When I attempt to start the Supercollider server using the
scsynth -u57711 -i 2 -l 8 I receive the error message “Segmentation fault (core dumped)”
When I look in the core dump using gdb I see the message
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
#0 0x00007f91f2d8b722 in client_node_transport () from /usr/lib64/pipewire-0.3/jack/libjack.so.0
I originally installed the jack-audio-connection-kit.example-clients package when Fedora
switched to using pipewire as a default instead if Jack. The above package included
the jack_lsp command. Without this package I could not run the Supercollider server.
I attempted to add this command in Fedora 38 by adding the jack-example-tools package from the
planetccrma repo. This did not fix the issue. Installing the package did add the command, but
The Supercollider server still crashes with a Segmetation Fault. In fact, If I attempt to
run the jack_lsp command by itself, it also crashes with a Segmentation Fault.
If anyone is running Supercollider with Fedora 38, I would be very interested to know
if you encountered this and any solution you might have found. Also, if you did not
run into this issue, I would be interedted in knowing anything you can tell me about
you audio/pipewire setup on Fedora 38.
Please let me know if I can provide any additional information that would help.
