Max 5 Runtime on Linux...


    May 15 2008 | 4:59 pm
    Just out of curiosity I installed Max 5 under wine on a recent Ubuntu Linux. I did expectantly get a bunch of error messages due to Pace probably, but the first impression is: It works...
    When starting I get the following error messages (a lot of the same):
    folderwatcher_beginproc: ReadDirectoryChangesW failed folderwatcher_endproc: error 1460 calling CancelIo
    Beside these, I can call the Max help files and they seem to work... Audio does have problems, choosing the mme driver will fail with
    ad_mme: unable to open wave output device ad_mme: stopping due to error
    choosing the direct sound driver first worked somehow (I got sound from the cycle~ help file), but opening another help file killed it. It will now report:
    ad_directsound: error 8878000a from CreateCaptureBuffer() in adds_allocatedrive...
    (Don't know how to open the clue window on a Max Runtime in Linux... ;-)
    I guess these error messages do mean somthing, but I don't know what. In a way it worked better than I expected, and for sure it needs some tweaking...
    This is not important at all, but I just wanted to share this experience. If anybody knows to what these errors might point, I'll appreciate...
