I've just started using snd to edit speech files. I'm having the
following 'experiences'. I haven't investigated these in any depth and
I come here for clues as to whether any of these are actual bugs or
(more probably) config issues I can clear up. I have Read The FM.
Apart from the issue with long files, snd is perfectly usable (better
I'm running snd 5.8 on Debian GNU/Linux 3.0
:$ snd --version
This is Snd version 5.8 of 13-Mar-02:
Xen: 1.2, Guile: 1.4
Sndlib 15.0 (11-Mar-02, int24 samples)
CLM 1.62 (6-Mar-02)
Gtk+ 1.2.10, Glib 1.2.10
Compiled Mar 19 2002 10:54:56
C: 2.95.4 (Debian prerelease)
- there was no ~/.snd file and I couldn't find a default config anywhere
(e.g. /etc/snd, etc/defaults/snd, ...). I've set up a basic one, just
with window size.
- I get occasional segfaults when I use Alt-O/Alt-C to open/close a
file. Mostly they just mean Alt-O doesn't work, but sometimes snd crashes.
- Apart from the gui-based keyboard commands (e.g. Alt-O), the keys
don't work. The emacs-style keyboard commands (e.g. Cx Cf to load a
file, etc) just don't do anything, and snd will only listen to the gui.
I'd love to get this working as my fingers are already configured for
- Long files (e.g. more than a few minutes) don't seem to be fully
loaded - only about the first quarter. I'd like to edit audio files up
to around 20mins (maybe longer - presumably there's a limit?)
